    08 WRX Clutch Swap Experience?

    Just curious if anyone has experience dropping the trans on the 08+ WRX.

    I've got 43k on my stocker, and I figure if I'm going to try it myself, I should start reading up on it now. I'll download the service manual later, I'm just looking for general knowledge. (i.e. what needs to come out of the engine bay, does the drivetrain need to come off, anything differenct from the 02/03 clutch install thread).

    Just buy a shop manual and make your life easy. Clutch swaps are a piece of cake with the right tools on the Subaru. Just don't try and do one on a Volkswagen.....

    Lol, I had a mechanic talk me out of buying a new beetle when they first came out, because he said I would never find anyone willing to work on it.
