C4S Clutch Change

Recommended Posts

Mentioned in another post that while shifting 1st-2nd onto freeway there was a bump and clutch went soft, now slipping in all gears but was able to limp home. Looking at the forums this seems like a pressure plate problem so planning my first clutch/pressure plate change. Looking at the photos from other posts I'm ready to take my time and give it a go but I haven't seen a post describing the extra work to get the AWD transmission out of the C4 vs. the C2.

Any advice? I assume I can still do it without dropping the engine..

Thanks Lauren, I plan to do the work myself and will get the support bar to hold the engine.

There are a couple of great online guides such as http://www.c-speedracing.com/howto/996rms/rms1.php but I have not seen any guide for the AWD C4S.

Does anyone have a guide or any details on the additional work over and above the regular two wheel drive?

Great, I was hoping it would be straightforward.

As this is my first clutch change I was planning to get a new set of jack stands and a transmission jack. The Harbor Freight jack looks good (http://www.harborfreight.com/automotive-motorcycle/transmission-jacks/2000-lb-low-profile-transmission-jack-4075.html) if anyone has any experience?

In particular though, do people have a recommended jack stand - flat top or shaped, and what kind of height?
