According to the service manual, yes you do have to remove the transaxle assembly in order to replace the clutch. Be sure to replace the rear main engine oil seal as well because they leak and ruin the clutch friction material! here is a link to a very good online repair manual: http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online
