Might I suggest that you post up the VIN (it will be obscured by the forum software, but Moderators can still read it) so that a Mod with the right access can look up the procedures for you?

The VIN is usually in several places on the car. On the nearside lower edge on the windscreen there is (in the black area) a window where the VIN should be visible, and another location is on the off side wing shut, where the front wing and the bonnet meet.

The VIN should be visible through the windscreen at the edge somewhere. The screens usually have a black edge with a window showing the VIN.

EDIT - Damn, beaten to the post.

as far as clutches go this is one of the easier ones, nothing too difficult. The book repair time is under 4 hours.
