I am going to replace my clutch tomorrow. However before I tackle it, does anyone have any ideas of how long I should expect to be under the car and is there anything I should know in advance to save exploding with frustration in the heat?
Cheers

Yeah right, I watched two mechanics struggle with the 155, the whole bottom sub-frame/member had to come off, then shafts and box.

If you intend to do this on axle stands I suggest you at the very least get a friend to help you out, else you might be there two days ;)

my point exactly, 4 hrs with 2 people at it........ its a struggle in my book :p My point being is dont attempt it by yourself as you may need more than a day to get the job done alone.

It took almost the same amount of time to have mine done as I watched it happen, but subframe did come off :rolleyes:

in 4 hours ... I honestly dont think so. I had the car up on a stand with full garage full on alfa tools and it took 7h and removal of the subframe ...
then again I removed the gearbox..

I am going to do this next week and I am going to time the procedure. :cool:

Beware of bolts breaking
When my clutch was done most of the bolts sheared and had to be drilled out :eek:
