From memory,

it was just starter motor off from the front, exhaust off, gearstick off, prop shaft undone,then you are away, I did the job on mine with a couple of mates (who work for a Nissan garage) They reckoned it was one of the easiest clutch changes they'd ever done...

the gearbox,transfer box and clutch housing weigh a lot though so you will probably need a lift to get it off of the gearbox jack.

It took four of us to lift it back onto the car (you'll need to hold the prop shaft out of the way or remove it from the back as well as the front.

hope this helps..

Steve

Yeah,

My Mate did that one and it looked like he was delivering a calf !!
laying on the engine with his arms down feeling for the bastard...

he did it quickly enough though...
