Hi, so I'm putting in the clutch in a subaru gl. Is there anyway to get the throw out bearing off without a machine shop? Thanks

The throwout bearing attaches to the clutch fork with two clips.

 

Are you referring to the pilot bearing?

Well as far as I know, that is pretty much one piece. When you get a new clutch kit, it comes with a replacement throwout bearing "assembly."

They just sent the throw out bearing with no "guide". The old one needs to come off. Trying to figure out how to do it at home

Hmm, well let's wait for someone else who really knows what they're talking about to chime in. I only kind of know what I'm talking about..

Support the actual bearing on it's outer edges between the jaws of a vice find an appropriate sized socket that fits the throwout bearing holder and then tap the holder out of the bearing, The socket will transfer all the force evenly so as to not damage the bearing holder.

Obviously a socket that fits inside of the new bearing will drive out the holder from the bearing and if you do not want to damage the socket put a piece of timber on top of the socket and hit that with a hammer.

 

If you do not have a vice then you can support the outer race of the bearing on a couple of pieces of timber.
