Just an update.. So I got the clutch done, all back together & running like a watch..
Anyone looking to do this job on their own, on a drive & up on axle stands.. Take heed this is not a job for the faint hearted or an inexperienced novice! It is a big job & I highly recommend you have an extra pair of hands to help!!
For those of you brave enough to have a go, just before you instal the new thrust bearing, make sure that the black plastic ring is sitting over the spring clip that retains the bearing in the pressure plate!! Very important.. It's quite common to purchase a new clutch kit & not realise the correct location of said clip on thrust bearing. If the clip is not located correctly for installation, you'll find when you've finally got the box all back together ready to push the clutch arm to engage the bearing into the pressure plate, it won't clip into place... You don't won't to be in that predicament trust me!!
I realised the clip not being right just in the nick of time, only due to my years of mechanical know how. Any novice could quite easily overlook this & find themselves in a whole world of pain, and wanting to do nasty things with a big hammer?..
Anyway good luck to anyone attempting this on their own as I did.
Whilst the car was half stripped to do the clutch, I decided to change out all the suspension components, new arms too n bottom both sides, new drop links & new ARB bushings. I managed to change ARB bushings without removing the subframe, there's a nack to this, but it's pretty easy when you know how!
I also removed the turbo, stripped it down & cleaned out the vanes, this cured the over boosting issue?? a job well worth doing..
