Clutch Install For 1996 Altima

I was planning on buying a 1996 Altima SE. The only catch is that the clutch is blown out. I was wondering how hard it would be to install a new one. I would be working in my garage and have the ability to work on it. I was wondering if it would be fairly easy to change it or would it be hard? Any help would be appreticated.

I replaced an axle in a parking lot this weekend, and I didn't really have any prior experience working on cars, so anything's possible.

That said, clutch is pretty major. I think you have to take the tranny out to get to it, which will require taking both axles out. Once the clutch is out, you'll probably need to replace the disk, have the flywheel resurfaced, and do something with the pressure plate.

Check out a Hanes manual for a general description of the job, and then find a real shop manual if you still want to try it. Plan on it taking a lot longer than you think it should, and plan on spending a good bit on parts and tools you didn't think you'd need.

Have fun!
