Right then, I'll try to gather together some hints and tips as there isn't a clutch replacement FAQ yet. When I do it I'll take some pics along the way too. So far:
At least: a suitable clutch kit (with thrust bearing), clutch spiggot bearing, downpipe/exhaust gasket.A clutch alignment tool makes everything much easier.
While you're in there, you may as well do: Engine rear oil seal and gearbox input shaft oil seal (and gasket for the cover), as these are a few pounds and need the gearbox out to do them.
If your gearlever boots are worn (notchy gear shifts and warm console), or your clutch slave cylinder and pipe (spongey pedal), it's easier to do these at the same time, but not necessary as they can be done later without removing the gearbox again.
Remove gearlever knob, centre console, gearlever gaitor and boots, and gearlever. Remove slave cylinder (leave attached to pipe unless it's to be replaced), starter motor, propshaft, exhaust, detach wiring loom from gearbox, remove gearbox. Remove flywheel, replace clutch cover and plate, thrust bearing and spiggot bearing, replace engine rear oil seal, and reassemble. Remove input shaft cover, replace oil seal, renew gasket and replace cover. Reassemble in reverse order.
Pics to follow.
