First, mine isn't bad or anything; I'm just curious about this job. I feel like a front wheel drive clutch replacement job is one of the DIY taboo's, one of the "don't go there's." I understand the transaxle needs to be removed. It pains me to only pay ~140 for an OEM spec clutch, then pay twice that for labor charges.
Armed with a hydraulic floor jack and jack stands, is this something I could do myself? I've done a fair amount of work on my vehicle, including replacement of the entire exhaust system (including manifold), radiator replacement, and removal of the rocker assembly for seal replacements.
