Question Trying to change clutch

Hey guys,

I'm trying to change my clutch over the weekend, and I'm having some issues. I first wanted to check the level which I can almost get to easily.

I couldn't find any spefic step by step instructions online on how to change the clutch besides some here and there information.

Does anyone have a copy of the service manual (not owners) to get a better idea. A free one would be nice, but I'd pay a nominal fee if I must.

Thanks in advance!

I not have the service manual but it is not very hard to do. just be aware that you have to drop the sub frame.
