Transaxle is lowered out of vehicle. Engine remains installed.
1) Disconnect battery ground. Attach an engine support assembly. Remove left transaxle mount bolts and mount. Disconnect back-up light wires, speedometer drive cable (plug hole) and clutch cable. 2) Remove upper clutch housing-to-transaxle bolts. Remove starter. On models equipped with flywheel which has cut-outs, align flywheel lug with boss on bellhousing. On all models, disconnect shift linkage at rod lever and relay lever and remove front selector rod.
Vehicles with cut-outs in flywheel can be identified by a stud/nut at right engine-to-transaxle mounting position. Flywheel on this type vehicle MUST be aligned before separating engine/transaxle.
3) Remove exhaust pipe bracket. Remove transaxle rear mount and support transaxle on jack. Disconnect left and right drive shafts at transaxle and wire up out of way. Remove large plate cover bolts (plate remains on engine). Remove small cover bolts and cover. 4) Remove the right engine-to-transaxle bolt (stud/nut). On vehicles with cut-outs in flywheel, pull transaxle away from engine to clear dowels and lower and remove transaxle. On all other vehicles, pull transaxle away from engine, while cocking engine so right drive flange clears flywheel. Lower and remove transaxle. 5) With transaxle removed from engine, install Holder (VW558) to ring gear or pressure plate. Remove bolts in a diagonal manner until flywheel can be removed. Pry retaining ring from release plate and lift release plate from pressure plate. Remove pressure plate bolts in a diagonal manner and separate clutch disc.
