I went down to my local dealer's today, to get the parts I need to reassemble 
my urq after removing the defective clutch master cylinder.  It's basically 
just a few self-locking nuts, the shear bolt for the steering lock and a couple 
of clips.
I needed five of one nut - they didn't have any in stock.  They'll be in 
tomorrow.  I enquired what their usual stock levels were - they said they 
didn't stock them.
The microfiche says all five _MUST_ be renewed.  It's only the brakes and 
steering, after all.

The service manager asked what I was doing.  I told him.  He asked: "How long 
did it take you?"  "Six hours for the strip, doing the rebuild over 
Christmas."  "First one?"  "Yup."  "Wanna job?"
