Help needed with clutch replacement. I'm stuck..

Recommended Posts


I'm doing a clutch replacement myself and everything has been pretty smooth so far. I'm almost done unfastening all bolts on the transmission and just about to lower it down.


I have a Carrera 4 and I'm trying to detach the front shaft off my transmission. There are 6 bolts three on each side. I unbolted them all but it's not detaching from the transmission. Does anybody know how to get it off?

The instructions are in C-speed racing (RMS seal replacement), but the vehicle is a Carrera 2

Undo the ones with the heads that face the front of the car. then use a pry bar or something to move the rubber osolator toward the front of the car. The whole shaft slides toward the front of the car on a splined end that fits into the front differential housing. I know because I dropped the engine on my C4 last week. It resisted at first, but with a little pressure (not tos much) the ruber and the flange on the transmission will separate. Good luck, if you need I can send you some pictures of the ends after they are separated.

once you remove the 3 bolts heads that face the front of the car... wiggle the shaft hard while pulling the driveshaft mount away from the transmission outputshaft... the driveshaft mount will retract from the transmission outputshaft. once its out, let the driveshaft hang there while you remove and reinstall the transmission.
