Agreed. The days of some of us taking an engine to bits and putting it all back together again in the evenings after work disappeared when pushrods and points were done away with. Wouldn't know where to start now, let alone have the right tools.

Air con won't need disconnected plus should never be disconnected unless the systems been emptied if the gas first, I've not really looked under it but normally you'd need to break the box away and lift and twist ect to remove it but if only doing a clutch will prob get it back enough to do the clutch with the gearbox supported somewhere on the chassis
It's dual mass flywheel - don't know whether the box will move back far enough to disengage the primary shaft far enough. Also remember it's the concentric slave cylinder / release bearing assembly so need it back far enough to replace that as well.
