1999 S10 Clutch replace and transmission removal

09-04-2008, 10:05 PM
Hello AF,

I have a 1999 S10 2WD 2.2L manual truck and the clutch is out. So, I have a few questions:

1. The transmission and bell housing is all one piece right?
2. How do I remove the shifter to replace the clutch?
3. Anything special to do with the slave cylinder?
3. Anything else that I am not mentioning above would be helpful.

I have been searching threads and couldn't find anything.

Thank you for your help!!

Welcome to AF.
Most transmissions are with bell housing made on transmission.
On shifter stick remove the boot around it and see if it comes out from the top.
If not

Most of them the shifter/shift stick.
Can be removed by dropping the rear transmission cross member.
Support back of transmission and lower it down easy.
The reach up over the side of transmission and remove the 4 small bolts bolting the shift stick cover to transmission.
Usually a small square cover about 4 in. square with 4 bolts holding it on the top of transmission.
I always hold the stick up from inside cab with string or wire tied to upper part of cab.
Sometimes the sun visor bracket.

If you have the inside slay cylinder I would replace it with the clutch.

On The clutch and pressure plate I would go a Brand New not rebuilt clutch set.

You are welcome.
I more thing if inside slay cylinder you will need to remove the plastic line going to it.
It has a quich release but they make a special tool to get it undone.
Let us know how it goes.
Good Luck

This is a picture of the tool should be available at the parts store.
