Nice inust did this last weekend

ok there's a black dust cover on the bellhousing that u can take off and it will expose the clutch assembly, after that you will see the fork with the cable in the fork, when I did it my cable broke so it was easy removal but find out a way to remove it from the fork, if you have a adjustable cable just adjust those two nuts all the way out. Once it's off the fork pull that retaining clip the other guys are talking about to remove the complete cable assembly from the bellhousing support. That's prettymuch it sorry for the misspelling good luck ;) trust me it can be frustrating, and when it come to replacing the cable don't get cheap but A steeda adjustable ;)

Just did this yesterday in my car, the c clip in my cable holding to the bellhousing was actually missing so I just pulled it right out. I went to napa and got one from them that work pretty good. The actual cable doesn't go in the tranny, it goes through a hole on the bellhousing (picture from SmokeGt) and then to the clutch fork. Just get a prybar and push the clutch fork toward the front of the vehicle. and move the cable through the slot towards the passenger side and it slides right out. Like I said I just did this last night so if you have any questions my memory still fresh :gringreen

lol...well if you try to follow the instructions with it then no. But if you have basic knowledge, you should be able to figure it out. Just remove the driver seat when attempting this. Its a lot easier to reach and put the new quadrant in. Just a heads up, the little stopper (not sure what its called) but its small and white like the quad. that thing is a B!TCH!!! for me to get off....

So don't expect 20 min to be done like it says. It may take more. Good luck though with that.

Man that is hard...I honestly did it in couple hours. Most important thing is just to keep calm and have patience, it will pay off. I know it sounds kinda crazy but you will start to get frustrated specially when the adjuster comes into place. If you need a complete break down SPM I will explain it. I will try and write a complete description...maybe with some pictures.
