Am I wrong on this one. Any advice would be appreciated. You need a Bentley Manual for your car. Remove the cover, and then remove the little plastic oil flinger from the end of the input shaft. Screw in an M8 bolt with a washer on it. Using a pry bar pull out the input shaft until it contacts the radiator. Mine didn't take too much force at all, so don't get crazy. You can now remove the clutch bits and the slave cylinder. This is NOT a step by step procedure so go get the Bentley Manual. It's really an easy job. While you're at it you might want to replace all the rest of the clutch parts while you're in there. Duane
