Default 85 camry clutch slipping

alright so its time for a new clutch the one I have is slipping pretty
bad
what parts do I need to buy in order to fix this problem. I can get a
discount on parts then I just find a shop to do the replacement.
Unless anyone might be able to tell me or show me were I could learn to
do it myself I learn very easily.

Default Re: 85 camry clutch slipping

Need cltuch disc (rebuilt ok), pressure plate, throwout bearing, and pilot
bearing --- off time to drain old trans fluid and refill too. Get a Haynes
or Clymer book and see if you want to tackle. Most repair shops would
prefer to buy/use their own supplied parts (they make a few buck there too).
If it has been slipping for awhile now you may have to remove and turn the
flywheel too (if gouged or has blue burn marks.).

================
While the transmission is off would be a good idea to also change the
rear main oil seal.
If you have a mechanic do the work I would advise against supplying
your own parts.
Once brought in a brand new synchromesh hub fresh from the dealer's
part counter for replacement by a mechanic. When the repair didn't work
correctly he blamed the part I supplied.
Lots of general automotive books ought to show you how to change a
clutch. Depends on your experience, aptitude and tools whether you
should attempt it.

1. don't supply your own part(s) This will only infuriate the mechanic,
and take part of his profit out of the repair, and (see above)...you don't
want to be blamed for supplying the wrong part, inferior part, etc by the
mechanic if the job goes wrong.

2. Think long and hard before deciding to replace the clutch yourself, if
your repair experience is minimal or confined to things like replacing an
alternator, changing plugs etc. A clutch job is big time.
