Thanks for that Marten.
That picture shows as if there is lots of room around the Master Cylinder for access. But on my 1990 SE as said
the Fuse & Relay Board is in the way, of seeing it & getting to it.

Likely to be LHD as poster is NL based?

That's why he's working with the left hand mainly. :wink:

Has anyone any pictures of under the Dash, of the Clutch Master Cylinder to show exactly the Clevis Pin & the Bolts?
Somewhat belated, but might help someone in the future:

This picture taken after the pedal box is removed, but the only real obstruction is the fuse block and relay rack.
There's only 2 off M6 bolts holding the electrics in place, but the side one is very difficult to reach. I made up a special long bolt last year, which makes removal very easy (ignore the nut far left. Thats there just to keep all in place whilst removed).

Love the extended bolt idea! That one is hard to manipulate otherwise.
