James Marriott says it's a 3-minute job... When your engine(s) is/are 
strewn all over the garage like his is/are at the moment, you can walk up 
through the front of the car and address the tranny up close and personal.
If, on the the other hand, your car is fully assembled, the way most of us 
prefer to keep them, it involves things like assembling 36" of extensions 
to drive out the retaining pin via the wheelwell. And a bit more time.

Perhaps you misunderstood me.  Anyone ever bleed the clutch system (since it is using brake fluid from the same reservoir, and we're discussing brake bleeding)?  Should not require removal of the slave, etc.; think there's a bleed nipple in there (but not easily accessed without a lift, I think).
