just done one , not an easy job but well worth the effort took me a day but would av been much easier if i hadnt tried to completly remove the gearbox , just pull it as far over as it will go and theres enough room to do the clutch
I done this on a 1.6 MkII Clio and found the easiest way was to drop the sub frame, remove gear box & hay presto one clutch on fly wheel!
I wouldn’t recommend this to the novice or nervous though, but took me several hours to jack up, chock, dismantle/remove all components. Replacing the clutch was the easy bit then re-assemble all components another several hours.
Start to finish a good 2 days for the DIYer
Afterwards I was told that it is possible (with a squeeze) to leave the sub-frame in & pull it out through the top!!!!
You can just drop the nearside of the subframe down slightly and that gives you enough room to push the box back on to it and change the clutch.It is a bit of a faff trying to line the new clutch up,but it saves dropping the whole subframe.
