    02 WRX Clutch

    Im going to be doing some work on my 02 WRX and had a few questions...

    how big of a job is changing out the clutch/flywheel/pressure plate? Could 1 guy do it without any special tools? or should I just have my shop guy do it?

    How many Hours should this take a shop to complete?

    I will also be changing out the timing belt. I have read up on the tutorials and belive I can do this myself... My questions here are, How long on average should this take me? (by myself)

    I couldent find too much info on the tensioner, is there just one? or 2? do you replace the whole unit? or just the pulleys?


    Thanks- Ian

    I replaced my clutch, flywheel and pressure plate a couple months ago if you are still looking for responses. It took me about 2 days in my garage with help from a buddy. The hardest part was getting the transmission separated from the motor.

    Big.

    You will need a jack with a flat surface at the very least to support the gearbox. You can DIY something using an old crate and a hydraulic jack.

    How many Hours should this take a shop to complete?
    I'd estimate six or so.

    I will also be changing out the timing belt. I have read up on the tutorials and belive I can do this myself...
    You're ahead of me in the game then. I could not do this myself. I needed a second pair of hands to help me get the new belt over the intake cam on the left side of the car.

    My questions here are, How long on average should this take me? (by myself)
    A weekend. This assumes you'll get the belt over that last cam by yourself.

    I couldent find too much info on the tensioner, is there just one?
    One.

    do you replace the whole unit?
    The whole unit.

    or just the pulleys?
    I did those too, yes. Leave the lower middle pulley off the motor until you have passed the belt entirely everywhere else, including that last intake cam -- so until you are ready to go basically. Then and only then fit the last pulley on the lower part of the motor. All this before pulling the grenade pin on the tensioner.
