how on earth did you break the bolt?
you can buy those reverse drill extractors to drill and remove the broken bolt, once its removed then you thread a ned bolt in there.

its really in there like the pin will not budge at all! i have 160k on the car so i have no clue if the clutch was already replaced with the previous owner? i would imagine they did though and i have no clue who did the work.. well i was able to get a nut at the end of it so im going to try to create some puller and see if it works.

yes you have to remove it because its attached to the throwout bearing, which is clipped into the pressure plate. i suppose you can do it caveman stlye and pull that bitch out, but you will damage you throw out bearing, and pressure plate (which you should be replacing any ways) and possibly bend you cluctch release fork.
If you get the trans out you still have to get the wrist pin out to put the trans back in

that really might be my only option..i have a brand new throw out bearing and pressure plate so if it really comes down to forcing that shit i will.. Once the transmission is out it will be easy to get that pin out but lack of room is really making it bad.

ahhhhh finaly got that damn pin out..i went and got some needle nose vice grips and a can of wd-40. An hour after messing with it the pin finally decided to come out. The transmission was cake walk after all that. However i would much much much rather work on a 240sx..i can have my sr20 out with the engine and transmission and put it all back and running in 2 1/2 hours tops.

clean that bitch off really good, i would use a red 3m scrub pad. and lube it up before you stick it back in.


be careful of the loose release fork when putting ithe transmission back in, its easy to get it jammed against the pressure plate. every time you tighten a bolt make sure you can still move the release fork. it s alittle tricky to get the fork on the throwout bearing as well.

WRXKidid775 is more helpful than not
If its a ground which I am pretty sure it is it can be attached to any proper grounding point.

That monster of a pin is always a PITA.
