It's no more difficult than standing on your head in the driver's footwell to lubricate the clutch bushing................ :twisted:

I find it easiest to clean it from the opposite side - ie sit on the right and do the LHS etc.

Where I come from that used to be known as the Lotus position!
Upside down on the driver's seat, head in the footwell, trying to get that bl**dy throttle linkage to work again.
LOTUS = Lots Of Trouble, Usually Serious.
Thankfully I managed to survive with less serious (but quite regular) "trouble".
