GR6 Clutch Assembly Removal Instructions
The GR6 trans clutch assembly very simple to remove and install.
To remove the assembly from the trans is easy.
Oil Pan (This step can be done with trans in the car):
- Remove the pan first by removing the 21 pan bolts which use a 10mm socket
- Pull the oil filter DOWN an out. Nothing is holding it in, just pull:
- Locate the 16 pin connector circled in the picture below. Remove the connector bracket using a 10mm socket
- Disconnect the green 16 pin connector (located on the clutch cover side corner of the assembly)
- Jam the connector (coming in from the front cover) down into the front cover assembly cavity. This is to prevent it from snagging on the housing when the front cover is removed (prevent damage)
Front Cover (After the oil pan work is complete- remove the trans from the vehicle but DO NOT remove from subframe. The front cover can be pulled with the trans still attached to the frame):
- Remove the 20 bolts with a 12mm socket
- With a pry-bar, very carefully pry the case apart using the case areas designed for this
- Very carefully pull the assembly out of the trans straight and out
- Be careful with the 16 pin connector and do not damage it
- TIP: Note the washer which is on the output shaft (the shaft which is sticking out of the trans). The washer needs to be installed with the tapered end facing toward the gear. If there is no washer on the shaft, it is still sitting inside the ETS unit. Pull it out and put it on the shaft (3rd picture).
Clutch Assembly Removal:
- Remove the 4 T30 bolts from the clutch valve body (arrows show which ones below):
- Very gently and evenly pull the valve body away from the case. It will be a bit tight.
- Remove the small clip from the input shaft found at the center of the clutch basket (circled below):
You're done! Please ship basket to Jacks Trans for a complete and properly built unit for your goals!
Shipping The Assembly:
- Very carefully wrap the clutch assembly in a large bag and seal it well. If you need to wrap it in multiple bags, that's even better. We can't have any fluid leak out of the bag or the shipping company will refuse the package and it will bounce back
- Very carefully pack the components using a lot of packing material as these assemblies are fragile
- Make sure you have a large enough box and there is plenty of packing material in between the parts and walls of the box
- Would you feel comfortable taking the packed box and dropping it from 6 feet without any damage to the parts inside? If not, then it is not packed good enough!
- Insure the package for $3k
