DIY clutch change

Is it possible to change the clutch on this car 1.9 jtdm without removing the subframe.
Can the passenger side drive shaft be removed to push the gearbox out of the way.
I know elearn says take it out but Theres things elearn says that dont need to happen . Engine out 2.4 jtdm cambelt springs to mind.
Thanks

Hello James, I was thinking the same. Change the clutch by my self !.
I let the chance by an repair shop. Differend points was being happen.
1. the clutch it is self adjustment ( we say in german Automat) special tool is required, with out it is possible that the clutch self adjustment mechanismen goes out of aliment.
2. the subframe it has to be removed, there will not so much space to take the transmission out, or you will have the special lift for the engine.
3. On my one was behind 130000 km also neccesary to change the (Zweimassenschwungrad ZMS) very expensive.
4. Warranty on the work.

But in the last it is your own dessicion.

Best Regards
Dieter

Can you please explain what is the special tool you mentioned Dieter? What is its purpose? I believe that many mechanics do not have one and do the job in the end.

the subframe isn't really a big issue to get down, when I took my gearbox out I spent more time getting to starter bolts.

Thanks for the info so far
I have had a conversation with someone that the clutch change can take 6-7 hours.
Had a look at the proper tool - makes sense
How long did it take anybody else?
Thanks

The first time it took me 12 hours. The seconde time that the gearbox had to come of it took me 9 hours.
BUT i`m no mechanic, I expect 7 hours.

Actually now I think about it:

12 hours was including new DualMassFlywheel and clutch change.
9 hours was for gearbox change only

But extra time for the DMF and clutch change will be no more than 30 minutes.

Hi all,

I am close to change my clucth / DMF on my 159 2.4jtdm.
I will do that on my own, car on jack stands.

Can anyone summarise briefly the different steps, and share some tricks regarding the removal of the gearbox (should I take fully out the shafts? Is removing hub and shaft together a good idea? should I fully remove left hub to provide room? Is lowering the subframe few inch is sufficient?....)

Thanks in advance,
