  1. Put the new clutch in yesterday all up and running today, yippie
  2. Hi all. Though I'd share this with you all if you don't want to take your gearbox out of the car to replace the clutch then this is for you, Disconnect battery,Remove valance and exhaust boxes, remove boot floor, remove starter and clutch slave cylinder and gear linkage, (I did undo the cross gate cable at the gearshift which allows the box to move back further) remove cross member, disconnect driveshafts inner only, unbolt brake calibers and tie up out the way, remove discs ( a good time to replace them if needed) support engine,remove caliber brackets, undo gearbox bolts and tug like hell, and then you reached your goal, lots of latex gloves plenty of tea or beer (not recommended) a few plasters then put it all back, I'm not a mechanic but I like to have a go, all the posts on here certainly did help, it took me 8 hours to get the clutch out, not to bad I think, just waiting on the new one to be delivered
  3. Hi bibs, did you forget to add me to the reserve list, can't find myself on the master either ?
  4. Hi Charles I used silicon on mine. Just two dobs of it then tape it down till it's dry and it comes off easy, I know cos I stuck mine on Upside down
