Hi, I have volunteered to do the clutch on a mates car, to save him scrapping it and buying a newer one.
It's a 1999 1.8 16v vetec engine Mondeo.
Does the subframe need to be dropped for this job, or can it be done with the gearbox resting on the subframe?
Thanks in advance guys.

Subframe, Suspension, steering rack disconnected from subframe and engine supported from above is the preferred method.
The driveshafts have to come out from the box and the box removed from the car to get the alignment of the new clutch. The driveshaft oil seals also need to be replaced.
