A more elegant method is to use studs or long bolts instead of the standard bolts that hold the clutch casing to the flywheel, and put nuts between the flywheel and the casing, after using the crowbar to make space for one nut. After going round and replacing the standard bolts one by one, you can use the inserted nuts to lift the casing evenly away from the flywheel. That will depress the springs against the slave cyl. and you can insert the special wire tool or another thick wire (spark plug cable or whatever you have). After you have the wire in, loosen all the nuts and bolts and you can take out the clutch and slave cyl. -- MH '72 97 '77 96 '78 95 '79 96 '91 900i
