The 94-97 models used a mechanical clutch assembly, with a cable pulling a lever that moved the throwout bearing.slspf2 said:yes it would be a complete overhaul (not bad price wise). but i was saying earlier that I wanted to see what it was all about considering I have spoken to very few on the forum here who have done the procedure, or talked about doing it. I don't know about the 2002... but I have a 2000 and am pretty sure it's mechanical.
98+ models went back to a hydraulic clutch with a pedal-mounted master and integral hydraulic slave throout bearing....
If you have a coiled hydraulic line leading into the top of the tranny, you have the later model...
I converted my 97 from mechanical to hydraulic during one of the times I had the engine out and it was a nasty job -- lots of arching your body under the dash to scrape, drill, file, etc. -- but not as bad as a 9-5 alternator replacement.
