YMMV - When I did the clutch on my 86 5ktq, I had to use scary amounts
of persuasion to get the clutch slave out of the bellhousing - and this
was with the tranny out. I hammered it and used lube and heat, etc etc.
I honestly believe that if I was doing a clutch slave only job and left
the tranny in the car that I would not have been able to remove that
clutch slave. It's one thing to get that pin out, but another
altogether to get the slave to move.
I would say that you should be be able to do it without removing the
tranny, but you should be prepared to remove it if the force is against
Like I said at the beginning - YMMV
