Easily. Remove the gear box, the roller bearing is fitted to the box, so yoou dont have to worry. The clutch and plate is fixed to the engine held in with hex nuts, you'll need allan keys to remove them, remove the bolts and the clutch and pressure plate will fall away. Take the new one from the box, being carefull not to contaminate with grease or oil that is on your hands, fit the pressure plate into the clutch assembly and line up to the engine and loosly tighten up so the pressure plate will move with a little resistance. This is where the fun starts. Get your socket set handle and push it through the housing into the engine. Centralise the pressure plate as accurately as you can. Offer the gearbox slowly to the clutch and try to push it home. The pressureplate should have enought movement in it to move slightly to allow the gear box to fit. Once fitted, slowly and levelly remove the box, then tighten all of the clutch housing into place. Refit the box, tighten and go for a cup of coffee to congratulate yourself! The only other adjustments you have to make are to the clutch cable. Loosen the lock nut, loosen the adjuster bolt, tighten the adjuster bolt until the cable becomes taught, depress the clutch and you should feel the clutch release. Tighten the locknot and that's it. Hope all goes well, any problems let me know any problems let me know and I'll help. Regards, Dave.

Testimonial: "thanks just bought the car its on 48 000 miles"
I cant tell you why but I do have a solution for you to try, I had a similar fault on a fiat punto last year, I disconnected the battery for an hour and then put it back and the car started, Im still puzzled by this but It may work for you, worth ago, make sure you have your radio code before removing the battery
Hope this helps
