you have to remove the pressure plate from the flywheel.
then turn it upside down with the bearing in between the jaws of a vise [ to allow it to drop downwards ].
you'll need FOUR very small flat headed screw drivers [ jewellers screwdrivers ] to squeeze INWARDS the 'C' spring that holds the bearing onto the pressure plate. Once the 'C' spring is fully in then use a hammer to tap it out & down thro the jaws of the vise.
be sure to oil the clutch fork hinges before fitting the box back into the car. place the release bearing onto the fork & make sure it slides freely, you will have to remove the slave cylinder to do this.
Then mate the box to the car & when its secured to the engine the put a tube [ or vise grips ] onto the clutch lever & with one sharp movement pull it back towards the pass side of the car, the release bearing should not engage with the pressure plate. to test push the tube + clutch lever towards the drivers side, you should feel the pressure plate fighting agianst you.
I usually mark with tippex, on the clutch lever, the MAX inwards position of the bearing & the outter most position of the bearing. keep any eye on these parks as you are fitting the box. be carefully the bearing doesn't slip off its slider
when fitting the pressure plate use a long extension with tape on it [ to fill the opening of the pressure plate ] as a centering tool . I actually use the lead shaft of a TS gearbox as an alignment tool. Locktite the 6 Torx bolts too
