Oh sorry, you can tell from Nissan4Life pics you don't need to drop the trans. Just remove the clutch slave piston hardware and slide the cover on and reinstall the hardware.

As someone who has had to replace the clutch in my 2012 Frontier twice now, I would highly recommend that you replace both the master and slave cylinders ASAP. These are failing internally and causing premature clutch failure. I did not do this the first time so I ended up replacing the clutch a second time. Up to you but it is literally a 20 min job to change them both and bleed them. They are also pretty cheap on Rockauto.com.
Interesting conclusion you have here? How many miles had you driven on your original clutch?

The clutch only wears when you are engaging it or if your slipping it? How did your second clutch prematurely fail?

Your truck is 1/4 the age of my truck and I have original clutch 140k on it. Been towing a RV the last two years still no clutch problems. I'm sure it will start slipping one of these days.
