Welcome to the forum, the clutch is not a bad job for a relatively experienced DIYer, make sure you use a good quality kit, the haynes book covers the job fairly well.

Deatailed instructions here - and its a TD.

The problem with Haynes is you have to skip between the petrol and diesel books. What's in the petrol book is OK if you know what you're doing - ie can see what's likely to be in the way and know how to remove it.

Agreed, and make sure you use a Valeo clutch, QH are rubbish...

A superb write up Jon, but, er, there's one critical flaw...

no mention of hammers or gas axe's...... :roll:

Or is that just me..... :?:

Ooh, the pubs open......

Serious? Rad out??

I just rotate the diff upwards after the box is released from the engine???

Although, the gas axe is just sooooo cool, I cant help myself! :D

Piccies are always good Jon!

Especially if they're being modelled by nubile young phillies.....

I just crawl under, grab the box, wiggle it and it lands on my chest, then when i get out of hospital :lol: I prop the engine forward using a timber block between the sump and crossmember. I have a first motion shaft cut from a scrap gearbox to centralise the job and away :wink:
