Impreza GC8 clutch swap instructions?

Now that I have to do this (only took 88k of juddering ) I can't for the life of me find where the instructions on the web went. I swear it was on ScoobyMods.com, but now there's nothing like it there. I remember it had full photos of each step and most importantly didn't require removing the front axle half-shafts. Instead it only removed the rear driveshaft and slid the tranny away far enough to reach the clutch parts. I think it also had info like torque specs and stuff.

Does anyone know where it went? Did it go away because it was wrong or something? Or was it somewhere else on the web?

popping the front shafts out is easy.

Take the front wheels off. Loosen the 2 19mm bolts that hold the hub to the strut. Remove the top bolt. Repeat for the otherside. This allows the hub to tilt down, giving the shafts the clearance they need to pop out of the tranny.

Tap out retaining pins on both shafts. Voila. Shafts are easily pulled out and set out of the way on the control arms. Zip tie to keep them from falling if you want.

I have complete tranny swaps (old one out, new one in) down to 4-5 hours, taking my time.

Seems to me you'd be loosing more time leaving the tranny up there in the way.

Impreza GC8 clutch swap instructions?

That's the site, alrighty!! Thanks for the tips!

Here's a question for you: the 'updated' method removes the motor from the car, pretty much. Will that cause excessive mis-alignment when put back together? Or will the housings self-align pretty well? I plan STi mounts all around.

How about the rest of the proceedure? Those that have done the clutch swap, what do you think? I'm generally not afraid to try, I've just never done it and any other tips can only help.

<getting better but still ?)

yep...I'm in the same situation. I'm not afraid to try...but I like to gather all of the information I can before I start. I'll be attempting to change out my own clutch here pretty soon, also. The good thing is that if I ever have any problems I know I can come here and search around and find a solution, or ask if I can't find anything. You might want to try to find someone who has done one before to help you out.

I don't mean to hijack, but does anyone know a good place to get an OEM WRX clutch kit? Aside from the dealer, of course. (I'm lookin for the cheap)

I have assisted with a clutch install on my car, and saw no reason to remove the engine, and had plenty of room to perform the install. Either way fitting the engine and transmission back together can be a little bit of a pain.
