    Citroen C3 new clutch fitting

    Hi all,
    Just sat waiting for the recovery people to come and drop off my mums car,
    Its an 04 citroen C3,
    clutch has just about had it and is screaming like mad,
    my mum has been laid off so now has no income and public transport isnt a safe option for her as she has severe allergies,
    So im going to have a go at fitting a new clutch in for her,
    I know im jumping way in at the deep end as ive never attempted anything like this before,

    so has anyone got any tips?


    ive got a haynes manual and thats as far as ive got,
    been reading up on it and the book makes it sound easy,
    I know that in the flesh this will be a nightmare to do,
    I can picture many a spanner being thrown around the garage in frustration buy hey ho,
    you only learn if you give it a go,
    I'll let you know how I get on but ive got a feeling its going to take me a couple of weeks as I can only do it when me and my brother have spare time at the same time if that makes any sence,
    Thanks in advance
    Todd

    its not to bad on most cars the main issue is the weight of the bloody gearbox, jsut make sure you take it easy and everything is sitting right not a job to rush as you dont want to trash the fly wheel

    dont hit it with the hammer lol and just make sure the clutch plate is fitted on it right, when you drop the gearbox you will see the flywheel ive never damaged one taking a box off but some people have in the past.

    also make sure the gear linkage and any wires are out the way before dropping it dont wnat to bend them or break anything
