    I have a '98 SL1 and the plastic part on the clutch hub broke off. I got a
    new clutch from Auto Zone but they didn't have a remover that fit the hub.
    Is there a specal one that only saturn carries or can I just order one of
    the kit off the internet?

    Since you are trashing the one you have on there, can you not just pry
    it off? Maybe try sliding a piece of piano wire or something similar
    between the plate and pulley and pull on the wire from both ends to
    help pull the plastic off. Otherwise, get a piece of aluminum bar
    about 2 or 3" long and 1" width, drill a hole in the center of the bar
    and tap it for a bolt of appropriate size such that it is a little
    smaller than the bolt you removed from the clutch there. Then drill a
    hole on each end of the bar straight thru the plastic clutch cover and
    attach it with small, robust tapping screws. Then install your center
    bolt into the bar and turn it to start extracting the plastic cover.

    NO NO NO! Bad Bad bad! Prying on the compressor will damage the seals
    at the very least! Proper tools for a proper job! Same goes for
    installing. Pressure in the wrong place and poof, there goes your

    Sorry rock I dont know what you need for this pump off the top of my
    head but you can check ebay... Yeah AZ's tools are pretty limited.
