Clutch replacement 145

How easy (hard?0 is it to do a diy clutch replacement on a 145 1.6 (N reg)? Don't want to spend a fortune as it could easily cost more than the car's worth. The car is our "second string", but I'd hate to have to bin it, I love driving it, but can't afford to spend a lot on it.

Re: Clutch replacement 145

That is an interesting question. I am not sure of the approach.
Traditionally you would take the gearbox out but the 1.6 Boxer engine is easy to remove, and the clearance around the gearbox with the subframe is a little tight.

The manual suggests to remove the gearbox that you should support the engine, then remove the subframe complete with wishbones, then drop out the gearbox.

The alternative is to move the engine forward and I think I'd go for this option.

Is it difficult? Not really. The 1.6 Boxer is reasonably light, you could support it with a trolley jack.
Probably a weekend's work so as not to rush too much.
