Talking Replacing my clutch on my 94 miata!!! ;)

I know this is an old question but I am about to replace the clutch on 94 miata and already order the parts online. However, I will like to know what other things I might be missing before installing the clutch. I heard there is a sometype of gasket that has to be change from both the trans and the exhaust. Thank ever1 4 ur help.!!!

Samnavy made a clutch DIY thread/post that lists pretty much everything you need.

If you can rent or barrow a transmission jack, it will make the job much easier.

But the tranny is soooo little, the five speed weighs... what, like 55 lbs. or so?

I actually found it easier to bench press the trans rather than **** around with the angle of it on the jack.

Agreed, the second time i had to pull my tranny the bench pressing action worked a bit better.

Maybe the OPer cant bench it

There is no gasket you have to change. Alot fo people will change the front seal on the tranny.

I always change the engine rear main seal while I am in there.

And you probably won't have to change the exhaust gasket either. But it is cheap.

good Luck
