Ben - I don't know much about clutches and stuff, but I do have the service manuals for a MY01 RS - might have some info in the tranny section that you could use.

You on MSN/ICQ? I'm about to leave soon so if you can catch me on ICQ - you can find my ID in my profile, and you can probably guess what my MSN name is.

LaterZ!
Darren!!

You can either use a pair of pick tools, or an actual circlip removal tool. Either will work, but the tool will be easier to use.

Do the Subaru throwout bearings actually have circlips?!?

I wasn't aware of that.

Didn't the WRX have a different type of clutch than the RS clutch? The one on the RS is a push type and the wrx is a pull type. I've never seen one myself.. but you said it is inside the clutch, then maybe you'll need to remove the pressure plate off the flywheel before you can remove it. I'm not sure.

Well if it is a dead pressure plate that been used long, why don't you just get a new throw out bearing too? Better to change it now than to pull it all apart again in the future.

I always change the pressure plate and the throw out bearing as a pair.

the pressure plate and bearing are near new (5k kms). the plate was damaged in shipping. i would like to salvage the bearing as it's $230cdn new from the dealer.

is it a WRX??
if so, you need to take the plate off on the side of the tranny. it unscrews
then you pull out the pivot pin that holds the fork in
the fork and bearing comes out as one unit, then you can seperate it.

hope you can understand this. it's one thing to do it, and another to try and explain it
