I did this recently, it was inconvenient, but doable w/o real pain. the
biggest problem was getting to the slave cylinder to bleed it, I had a
11mm bleeder so had to cut down a 11mm wrench to fit in there and be
able to open and close it. I had to come in from the left wheel well
with a loooong ext. and socket to break it loose and when I was done I
did the same thing to be sure it was tight. Some times the things said
about the engineers that designed these beasts is not real positive.
