Clutch Removal Advice

Jul 6, 2006
Hey guys this is really unrelated but my buddy cooked his clutch when he got stuck on a snow bank this winter. The vehicle is a 1991 Mitsu Pajero, I know I know I shouldn't mention such things, but I checked out some of the Mitsu Forums in Canada, and its like there first ever truck and none of them seem to have the knowledge like the IH8MUD or Toyota community. That being said I'm just looking for a basic overview of what I will need to do to drop his tranny and remove the clutch and install a new one.

We've only so far have taken the center console and shifter boots off, will I need to remove the shifters themselves or will it come as one. Sadly the only experience I have with tranny removal is on a 92 Nissan 240sx, where you had to twist the tranny as you remove it to get it out of there.

It also seems I will have to drop the transfer case with the tranny, it is all in line and the tranny has the support beam under it, as well as disconnect certain parts of the Exhaust system to make room for hands, cuckle haha.

So please help me even though its not a Toyota,
Thanks in advance

reassemble in reverse of above.

Thanks Wayne, I was hoping you would chime in.

So its all apart and just sitting on the crossmember, I can't drop it yet without a floor jack or something like that so tomorrow it will all be done.
