Well, disconnect everything you need to, ie gear linkage, clutch cable etc,
Then take out the driveshafts and catch the oil, undo all the mounts needed etc, undo the bolts onto the bell housing and out she'll come.

Hd to do mine on my 1.8 zetec the other week and that was a right cow

back gearbox mounting is the only real problem. The rest is as simple as a clutch on a FWD car gets. Make sure you put it in gear and mark the gearchange rod clamp or you'll end up with your gearchange all over the shop.

Its a single rod under the back of the gearbox. You put it in gear mark it and loosen the clamp (13mm) and wriggle it free. Sometimes they're tight and have to be tapped(NOT smashed) off, but usually just pull off. Then undo the single bolt holding the steady bar (19 or 15mm) taking car to catch the thin spacer.(it may be missing). I asume that it's your post on the vx forum, pleases ignore the joker who advised taking out the engine! As yours is an early Mk VI you might be lucky and have a gearbox drain plug fitted. It's an 8 mm hexagon just underneath the driveshaft on the passanger side. They only put them on for a year then some bright spark realised they could save 0.0001p per car and no longer put a plug in. You can drain some of the oil by removing the stop plunger at the front of the gearbox if one is'nt fitted. Hope that helps
