Don't think so, I recently did it though.
Not *that* hard....
Crack hub nuts loose while on ground
Remove bumper
Remove headlight
Remove battery
Remove airbox
Drain box
Remove uprights
Remove driveshafts
Remove all plugs, earths etc
Loosen lower gearbox mount
Loosen gear linkage at box
One by one replace subframe bolts with threaded rod/nuts
Loosen steering shaft to rack nut
Support box
Remove tripod bolts
Lower subframe about 2inches
Remove bolts from box
Loosen box
Move box away from engine

Change clutch

Reverse

I think that covers it....

No, just drop it a bit and slide the box out.
Or drop the subframe and make replacing arb bushes easy aswell
That's what I'm doing. Also meant I left the shocks and steering components in place so hopefully the alignment isn't changed too much. Also means access in general
is tons better

I’m going to pussy out and get someone to do it for me next week been quoted £200 so isn’t the end of the world..
just bought a powerflex dogbone from a member on here, new clutch kit from Valeo and MTL box oil as per @NorthloopCup ’s recommendation will be looking forward to seeing how it improves the drivability.
