I've done this twice and it is a pain in the neck. The first time I did it I drilled about 50 holes through the slave cylinder until it came apart in two pieces. The second time I unbolted the pressure plate, then using a large screw driver I forced the pressure plate towards the front of the car and jammed various tools behind it so that I could fit hard plastic tubing under the finger springs. You need to work yourself all the way around, then I removed the tools holding it foward. Now the finger springs were compressed enough to unbolt and remove the slave cylinder.
