TRA clutch ?????????

I have a 98 Grand Touring 500 Liquid

the problem is when you turn the clutch by hand it make a rattling noise from where the levers are, is it normal for these levers to move freely by moving them with a screwdriver should they be attach to some thing. when it running it has a wobbling sound to it
Is the clutch easy too rebuild yourself
and what springs do I use
my Ski-doo has 26000km on it and it should need a rebuild by now stills runs fine except for the wobbling sound
I'm not using it right now

VERY easy to rebuild. Take the long bolt out that holds it to the engine, then just remove the outer half of the clutch. First, make sure the spline on the end of the shaft is OK. Then look at the clutch. There is one large spring in the middle, then there are arms with pucks/springs on the ends. Go to the misc parts section, then click on parts links, then OEM. Find your make/model and click on clutch. That will give you a breakdown of the clutch.

DO I need a clutch puller for the removal of the clutch
the dealer said that it is dangerous to take the clutch off

you can pretty much ignore everything the dealer ever tells you.
here is a step by step disassembly.

on your ski-doo, you need a puller if you take the fixed shive off, otherwise you can take the rest off and service everything without the puller. 9 times out of ten you will get by without it. just to make it easy on yourself, mark the innner and outer shives before you slide it off so you get it back in the same spot.

I was out looking at the sled and was wondering if I can take the clutch out without having too remove the engine looks like there is not enough room there to slip it out
I notice that the settings are on the number 3 position is this okay or can I move it up 1 or lower it down 1.
what can I used too clean the clutch when removed

Use brake cleaner to clean it. Moving to the next number will raise or lower RPM's by around 200, depending on what way you go with it.

cleaned the clutch with lite steel wool and some brake cleaner
cleaned the shives
cleaned the secondary
the carb's
the fuel pump
the exhaust valves
I adjusted the clutch numbers from 3 too 4
and what happened is I don't think this is the same Ski-doo that I bought man what a difference this all can make, man this sled can move even for a big heavy Grand Touring and I even got the ski's to lift never done that before
THANKS GUY'S FOR ALL THE HELP

I would have to say the clutch cleaning and the exhaust valves made the big difference
