'93 Chevy Cavalier Clutch Slave Cylinder Replacement

My son has a 93 Cavalier that needs a clutch slave cylinder replaced. We haven't been to a Trans shop yet but a general mechanic suggested it would be a tough & expensive job to do because of having to get into the bell housing. Any thoughts here? Best left to a transmission shop? I've replaced a few slave cylinders but never in a front wheel drive transaxle vehicle.....
Thanks in advance!

I'm seeing conflicting info on that slave. The diagram on autozone.com appears to show an externally-mounted slave, but everywhere else I look it refers to an input shaft-mounted, ie inside, slave.

Okay, just figured it out. Appears the 4 cylinder is external, V6 is internal. What's under your hood, Texas?

Anybody else able to confirm this one way or the other [I'm a Toyota guy; clutch slave is about a 10 minute job - external].

I'm almost positive he has a 4 cylinder so this doesn't make sense. I'll do some checking. Thanks MUCH for the feedback!!!!

Confirmed, this car has an Eco-Tec 2.2 four cylinder engine with an internal slave cylinder. From what I understand this is a very involved repair involving separating the transaxle so it will be off to the shop tomorrow......

Thanks for all of the input!
