How to Replace a Clutch in your Car or Truck (Full DIY Guide)

Learn how to replace a clutch, flywheel, pressure plate, throw out bearing (aka release bearing), pilot bearing and rear main seal in this video!
My clutch was fine but my throwout bearing was bad so I decided to show how to replace all of the wear items while the transmission was off. This includes replacing the pilot bearing which the transmission input shaft goes into, the throwout bearing which engages the pressure plate via the clutch fork, the flywheel which I upgraded to an aluminum light weight flywheel, and finally the rear main seal because that is a common wear item which causes oil leaks in higher mileage motors. With the transmission out, it is worth it to replace all of these parts now instead of having to do this all over again. Most clutch kits come with the throwout bearing and pilot bearing so you just need to buy a rear main seal.

    • Your biggest problem will be did the designers purist speed or wheel spin? If it's pure rear wheel speed it'll run to your rears, if they want to measure pure MPH it'll measure to the fronts. In FWD a purist would measure vise versa. If I built a off the charts 'stang and it did wheelies off the jump I could measure 1000+ mph. So measuring MPH at the wheel is definitely important.

  • That was an awesome video! I just recently bought a 1999 Cobra Mustang SVT, but I can’t stand the transmission! Going from 5th gear to 4th gear almost kissing the reverse gear. Then clunky shifts and vibration while coming down gears, when stopped at the intersection. It’s so annoying. I miss my old V6 Automatic Mustang. It’s also not like all the other 5 speed GTs that I’ve ever driven. I know what smooth and precise should feel like and this ain’t it. Lol So, I think I’ll just pay someone to do all that work. I’m not feeling too confident about doing the engine rear seal on the Cobra. It’s an aluminum block and I might mess it up. But thanks for the video. At least now I know how it all works and I know what to ask for from a shop mechanic.
