Brake Master Cylinder Replacement

It looks like the master cylinder has gone on my wife's Ph2 TS GTV - last night the brakes seized on whilst driving and the car stopped in the middle of the road. After it cooled down they freed slightly and I was able to drive it slowly home but the brakes were binding - however the pedal now goes straight to the floor with very little reisistance or braking effect. I can pump the pedal hard when the engine is off but as soon as the engine starts it sinks straight to the floor.
The fluid level is still at max and the clutch works OK, so this leads me to the master cylinder - I had a quick look last night and it looks nice and impossible to get to from the footwell - does anyone know is it possible to get at from the engine bay side?

Websites are like ********s, everyone has one, and im wary of any bloke trying to direct people into their's
