iv done it a few times now, its simple enough,

this is basically all you need to do for a complete beginner

you need to:
1. take off the gearknob
2. pull up the gearstick surround
3. open the 4 bolts around the base of the gearstick X2
4. pull the gearstick out of the gearbox
5. lift the car
6. take off the mid pipe from the exhaust,
7. take off the prop shaft,
8. disconnect the sensors on the side of the gearbox,
9. remove the slave cylinder
10. unbolt all the bolts holding the bellhousing onto the engine
11. slide off the gearbox (be carefull, its full of oil and will spill out where it connects to the prop shaft)
12. unbolt your old clutch
13. unbolt flywheel!
then to reinstall its just the reverse of this!
its simple, i find the hardest part is getting the new clutch release bearing into positon in the bellhousing
