Re: Who knows how to change a clutch on a 156 jtd 2.4??
Having just done this I can confirm it is a pig of a job. If you can get somewhere to do it for £300 take their arm off.
Brief summary (from memory):
Onto axle stands and remove both front wheels
Take out battery & tray
Remove reversing sensor
Disconnect slave cylinder
Remove slave bracket
Disconnect gear selector cables
Remove both wheel arch liners (both sections)
Remove front bumper
Remove exhaust section
Remove rubber mount and bracket for exhaust
Unbolt everything from front subframe
Drop subframe (involves jacking up front wheels)
Drain gearbox/diff oil
Unbolt & disconnect passenger side driveshaft
Make up bracket for supporting gearbox on a trolley jack
Put everything back together, press clutch padel, break slave cylinder, take it all apart again. Replace all front suspension as the bushes are shot and you've got it all apart anyway.
Take special care to have thrust bearing lined up perfectly, put it back together bleeding new slave cylinder.
If the car has done a fair number of miles and never been apart before expect to snap some rusty bolts. I'd say it took in excess of 50 hours all in, which is ridiculous given we can pull an RX-7 engine in < 2hours (it's probably taken me about 200 hours to strip the RX to a bare shell, respray it and put it back together with new everything), someone really needs to have a word with Alfa's mechanical design team.
