Ok, so this isn't actually on a VW, but it's basically the same thing. '02 Elantra, clutch is spent. I'm trying to pull the trans, and the input shaft is seized into the clutch disk. I can get a little space between the bellhousing and the block where I can get a prybar, but the most I get is about 3/4" gap that closes back up when I let off the prybar. I'm guessing I'm flexing the pressure plate or the sprung disk. There isn't enough room to get to the pressure plate bolts, and there's no handy little inspection hole where you can get at them either. Does anybody know any old school tricks, or am I just going to have to drop the crank and pull the crank/clutch/trans out together?
Why am I posting this here? The damn Elantra is keeping my Mk2 out of my garage. The sooner I finish this, the sooner I can get my Monty back in there and change the starter so I can drive it again, and also get back to building my 16v/ABA.
