Clutch, Rack & Pinion, and more

Few weeks ago I started to change my clutch on my 2003 ZX5 with 220,000 miles. This is the second clutch. It was spinning when cold, and before I needed to call a two truck I got busy.

First, I must say thanks to SPORADIC for his detailed DIY clutch thread

This damn clip took three days to get.



















Dropped all components, and decided to give the cross-member a new look.









Part of the rivet came out and damaged the clutch. When? I got no idea.



New Dual Mass Flywheel...NO MORE CHATTERING















This set the project back a week. It was very deep, and considered going to the hospital, but ah what the hell...
