I bought this hyundai accent 2001, really cheap because the automatic transmission is done....Ive been checking all over for rebuilt kits for this a4af3 automatic transmission but is almost impossible! and if you find it they want even 500 dollars for the kit...My question is...what should I change in this car in order to make it manual? i Know clucth parts, clutch pedal and all this headache! but is it really that difficult to swap a automatic transmission for a manual one? I dont think is that hard... why should be hard? ! Anyone already did this before?some tips will be welcome

Sounds even better because from what i heard before this automatic transmission is just that isnt good at all.

Well think about it logically. If that model year Accent uses a PCM (engine and trans computers combined), you'd need a new ECM from another car that was a manual. If not, then you might not have much problem there.

Other than that, you'd need a complete manual transmission. Meaning the transmission itself, clutch and flywheel. Does the automatic model use the same drive axle as the manual models do? You need to think about how the tranny mounts to the car. Is it the same as the automatic? Then there's the clutch master cylinder (for the fluid) and pedal assembly w/ linkage. The pedal install might mean some kind of cutting of the firewall.

Food for though.
