How to Replace a Transmission (Full DIY Guide) Top 7 Genius Ideas 3 months ago   28:24

Transmission removal, replacement, and installation. Learn how to remove a transmission so you can replace your clutch or flywheel, or so you can rebuild your transmission and install a new one in your car or truck.

In this video I show you the 10 simple steps on how to replace a transmission. I am doing this on a rear wheel drive 98 Mustang but the process is very similar on other rear wheel drive, front wheel drive, and even automatic cars and trucks. Each detailed step will allow you to learn how to remove a transmission yourself so you can replace a clutch, flywheel, rear main seal, throw out bearing, pilot bearing, or just swap transmissions.

To answer the most common questions in the comments section:
1.) Quality videos like this take a lot of time to produce. This and the next took me over 300hrs.
2.) Follow me on Instagram "ChrisFixit" for daily updates and tips and tricks.
3.) The exhaust on the car is the performance exhaust, just used on the track.
4.) The speedometer is fine... it spun all the way around at the last drift event and I havent had a chance to take the gauge cluster out and push it back to the other side of the peg.
5.) The other red Mustang is from this video:

Whenever I have an issue with my car or think about repairing cars and stuff, I dont wish anybody else but Chrisfix to be with me and help me. You are the man Chris. I wish I could have a chance to have a few words with you in person. I can even come to the States and visit you. Greetings and love from Turkey.

Ummmm when me and my dad were doing this he used the bathroom and he said "drain the transmission fluid" and I said "ok". So I had no pan ready and um rip driveway.
I have a problem, my car grinds at idle but when I press in the clutch. There is a nasty screech that occurs (this all happens without putting anything into gear). I have looked everywhere online but no luck. Anybody know what it could be? I have a video of it on my channel. Any help would be appreciated.
I need to buy an old car just to start learning how to fix stuff. Thanks for the helpful videos man

Ok, so I have the same T45 as your car in my 2000 Mustang GT and my throw out bearing just started acting up, I've got everything unbolted and the transmission supported and it just will not separate from my engine. Any advice would be awesome! Thanks in advance Chris!!
