This is all well and good but I'm still waiting for an explaination as to how you change the clutch without removing the gearbox

Srsly though, great work!


There's a removable plate on bottom of gearbox that allows access to clutch. Using a kit you can then compress and slide the clutch out from in between gearbox and engine. New clutch is fitted in reverse.

I can only assume that the paint around the rear screen was damaged some time in the past when the rear screen was replaced, as it has rotted in the bottom right corner under the outer seal. This is the only non-original glass on the car, and the only one thats bonded in. It would be difficult to repair nicely, so I bought another one to make life a little easier later on.

On the positive side, it is totally rot free, and has genuine glass in it. On the negative side, it has spoiler mounting holes in it. I could weld up the holes I suppose, but if an LX spoiler came up for sale, I'd most likely fit one. :)

......after removal the end cap on the gearbox.........and then pulling back the shaft (using an 8mm fine bolt)
