15.I jacked trans all the way up against floor. To get at top bell housing bolts 2 of them have wire connectors on them.pull back they disconnect easily.these two bolts need a 13mm deepwell socket.2 more bolts to get out from top.
16.install trans jack two bolts on driver side and your loose.
17.pull back on trans to get the input shaft clear if pressure plate.drop front of trans down and pull it forward till tail of trans clears the exhaust.
18.TIP. if reusing current flywheel what ever is machined off you must shim out flywheel or throw out bearing.no adjustment for clutch pedal height or about
19.With flywheel off there is a like tone ring. be careful not to turn it I watched a youtube clip that a guy had a misfire after doing his clutch change might be he indexed ring.
20.spec stage 1 clutch will not bolt to factory flywheel.

No pictures I didn't even think about it. Also for bleeding the throw out bearing. I still kept the front of the car in the air and pumped the clutch pedal till the pedal felt good and equal pressure feeling the travel of the pedal. Seen also on youtube to take a vacuum pump put a plug on the end to seal it on the master cylinder (I bought a utility tub stopper it fits perfectly) the off white with the metal ring. Bring pump up to 20 psi. wait 1 minute then release the pressure and pump the clutch pedal 10-15 times repeat 3 times.
