My clutch went out on my 98' Honda Civic.

Q.My clutch went out on my 98' Honda Civic. I was thinking of replacing it myself. Do I have to remove my transmission in order to get to my clutch? Is replacing a clutch something anybody can really do?

I already checked/done: I tried looking up online how much it would cost for the repairs but I can not find any information on that. From what I have heard, it will cost about $500.00 to take it to a shop.

Answer Yes, you will have to remove the transmission to replace the clutch.
The clutch is located underneath the transmission housing. Here:

I would recommend replacing clutch disc, pressure plate, throwout bearing, flywheel bearing, resurfacing the flywheel if any hot spots or replacement if cracked.
As for cost, that is way under, parts alone are about $200, maybe a little cheaper. Labor time is from 6-10 hours. You will have to check your local repair shop for there hourly rate. Average Honda dealers run approximately $85-110 an hour. Small.. >> login for more
