windshield...mae sure you have all the replacement gaskets...cause they like to break. Me and my dad changed the windsheild on our old volvo. Took us about an hour.

clutch...again make sure you have the right parts and tools before u start. I assume it wouldnt be too hard in your truck

its not for my pickup. its for a car i might, and might not get. just thought i would ask to see if it would be worth it. all im going to say is, it has a 2.0 motor out of a porsche.

Depends on the orientation. A transversely mounted engine will be a little more difficult than a traditional longitudinal orientation, only because there'll be less space to work in. But clutch replacements are basically the same. You'll need the torque specs for the nuts and bolts, and a clutch centering tool. Some cars require a specific clutch centering tool, but many can use a generic type sold in auto parts stores.

it really depends on wat kinda car it is, generally on older cars(like 60 or 70s) its very easy, and then it all changes as they become newer

I kind of helped do a clutch change on 1998 M3 Evo, to do that we had to take the exhaust off, drop the engine slightly and then take the gear box out to access the clutch.

I think it took few hour to do though and a lot of work and heavy lifting.

We didn't drop it completly out we had to lift the front end of the engine to tilt the rear of it to get the gearbox out. If that makes sense
