Default Any diy mechanics in northern va want to help me replace a clutch?

So my 01 boxster has a bad clutch. Car is not drivable. I have it in my garage on a lift.

Its in northern Virginia. If anyone wants to help let me know and your price

So the good part is that it’s on a lift right now so easy access underneath.

thanks

Good time to do the RMS, IMS bearing and other related items while you are in there. Sorry I can't help but I'm 2000+ miles away!!!!

If you were here, I'd trade mentoring/helping you do the work (good way to learn) for lift time. But alas, I'm a couple thousand miles away, too.

With a lift, it wouldn't be a bad job, while in there, you might want to put new boots on your CV joints, clean and grease them too.

A lift? I am envious! I did my engine the old school ways, with jackstands, floor jacks, and a cherry picker. A lift would have made it way more enjoyable.

I put it in about 5 or 6 years ago mostly to gain a parking spot. But it makes working on the cars so much better.
