In general, Jason, did you find that it was simply a case of patiently unbolting your way all the way in, and then building back up again in revers order? Or, ar there any parts that need any tricks. In particular, I,m thinking about disengaging and re-engaing the clutch assembly.
I've changed a few clutches in the past, but TBH its always been on rwd cars or vans, and I found the fwd layout and the total lack of working space the biggest problem...
Oh and that bloody starter motor bolt
- but in general yes, clear the ancilleries out of the way and its not so bad..I think we removed an upper engine mount too so we could tilt the engine to remove the gear box, although some say its not nesacery I like to have a good look at the flywheel etc and check the first motion shaft for wear, play or leaks.
to realign the clutch plate I just eyed it up with an old 1/2 drive extension
We also removed the slave cylinder as a whole, to save messing about bleeding the clutch, and marked the arm position on the spline.
I wouldn't recomend this as a first clutch change though
