    I have a 1994 22re Xcab hilux and working on upgrading my stock clutch. The problem is the upper housing 17mm bolts are hard to loosen :mad: and more particularly the one on the driver's side :shrug:. I was excited :funnyup: to work the clutch but now im fukn bummed :cry: that I cant get it out. Your expertise and advice is needed. :confused:

    TIA :bowdown:

    My recipe for that is:

    1) drop the trans x member to allow the engine to tilt back and allow more clearance.
    2) 17mm socket 1/2" drive
    3) 1/2" universal
    4) about 2 feet of 1/2 extensions
    5) 1/2" breaker bar
    6) lots of cussing

    I did the passenger side from the bay but the other bolt is a PITA. Not much room
