Guest Posted January 26, 2015 Share Posted January 26, 2015 Hello folks have any of you taken the gearbox of your Forester yourself to change the clutch components, I am in the process of doing mine but have hit a problem, every thing I can find is undone but the gearbox won't budge. Have undone all the bolts I can see and at what appears to be the last is 2 nuts right at the bottom edge, but you cannot see the very bottom as it sits down in a cross member just above the steering rack I can see the **** plate which covers the ring gear that has 2 small bolts keeping it on the gearbox but they don't interfere which removal but because you cannot see that bit I don't know if there is a bolt down there. So do any of you know, have watched a couple of videos on the inter web but they are all American and don't show much of the un bolting process so any ideas as I have been underneath I have pulled pushed lifted and pulled down and it won't break any seal it has created, it's the original clutch and done well for the mileage, am going to take a wide wood chissel to the grinder and see if I can persuade it to come apart. So there's the question any ideas, are they an !Removed! to come apart when never been of since new, it's a 2003 by the way. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
