cheers guys. newcybrown, any idea if theres a how 2 on the method you used mate? sounds straight forward emough tho?
Dont think there is a specific "how to" for the V6 but after reading frenchmikes sticky for the diesel and kinda adapting that it made the job much easier.
I'm not too clued up on the diesel but this is basically the way i did the clutch on the V6
"First loosen the drive shaft end nuts before raising the car.
Remove battery tray, air cleaner housing & starter motor.
Disconnect all gear linkages, cables and slave pipe connector from gearbox.
Raise and secure the car for safe working underneath.
Drain gear oil.
Drop bottom ball joints and remove drive shafts completely.
Support engine with a jack and gearbox with a trolley jack
Remove all engine to gearbox bolts then remove upper gearbox support and remove bracket.
Lower both jacks simultaneously allowing the gearbox to split from engine, prying between the two to allow the splines to come away from the clutch.
Once gearbox is loose sit it's back end on the subframe allowing the trolley jack to take the weight near the front.
This gives plenty of access to change the clutch and slave cylinder, there is also plenty of room to use a clutch aligning tool to refit the new clutch.
There is no need to remove sub frame, steering rack, exhaust or any components fitted to the legs ie track rods/drop links.
Refit in reverse but bolt the gearbox to the engine first before refitting the upper mounting."
HOPE THIS HELPS MATE
