    Hi mate
    you will need

    Flywheel bearing
    flywheel
    clutch
    slave cylinder
    copper clutch line which runs for the brake res
    prop
    hose from slave cylinder

    Apart from that its pretty easy, just disconect oil cooler and line at the front off the engine and all electric's, You will also need to disconect the ecu for the auto box

    it's a big job and requires ramps would it not be easier to buy a manual as these are relatively cheap cars now.

    in which case get a whole donor car it's a lot easier than sourcing all the parts seperately and then you know you have all the necssary pipes reservoirs, brackets etc

    It's probably cheaper to put another auto box in by the time you change everything over, alternatively, buy a manual.

    No it's not that big a job.
    Sometimes when replacing the clutch people change the DMF as well so not much more to undo or do up under the car.


    Add needle roller, clutch lines, clutch master and clutch slave, also add the gear lever bracket under the car.

    Most of it is not hard just easy bits but a few off them.


    Don't forget the gear lever bracket on the trans tunnel

    You may also have to jumper or bypass a relay for the Auto - don't start in gear safety. Beware if you car has a remote start alarm.
