I've never done this before but it's something I'm happy to try, especially since changing between 1st and 2nd is becoming something of a lottery. Bascially I'm after any tips on how to make this easier (and anything I should avoid). I understand the basic process but are there any other maintenance jobs I should be doing at the same time to save myself some trouble later? Any springs that are going to pop out and have me chasing them around for a half hour or more? Just stuff like that from people who have done this before. Or even if someone wants to write up a semi-detailed explanation of the process for me, and others seaching this topic in future. Cheers.
