never had a duratec gearbox off, but i hope you do not intend to keep the car raised on a trolley jack, you at least need 2 axle stands, then use the jack to support & lower the gearbox.

Hi

Did a 54 reg 1400 Fiesta clutch the other day on the floor. You will want to fit a new release bearing/slave cylinder as its one piece and prone to leaking. It is not accessable from outside the gearbox-they are around the 50 mark if I remember. You dont need any special tools and its a straight forward job so ne worries there. Good luck.

Rich.
