For access,if fitted remove electrical relay box,(3 bolts)and lay aside,remove hydraulic oilreservoir(1 bolt)and lay aside upright. Measure thread length of inner cable thru the adjuster on clutch arm and note it. Remove retaining clip and cable from clutch arm. In car,remove return spring and cable hook from pedal. Remove cable assembly from bulkhead pulling thru engine compartment. Push new cable thru bulkhead and reconnect cable and return spring to pedal. Fit cable inner to clutch arm and reset thread to noted length. Back in car,measure distance from top of clutch pedal pad to rim of steering wheel,then depress clutch fully and remeasure.Difference should be 134 to 141mm on rhd car.Adjust at clutch arm to correct it. LHD is 129 to 130mm. When dimension is correct,refit retaining clip on clutch arm. Note Clutch pedal correctly set will be higher than brake and have no free play. Refit relay box and hydraulic res.

My old T-reg (1999) Corsa 1.2 Club had a cable clutch. So I expect a 1996 model would be cable. As you look under the bonnet, the clutch mechanism is at your right hand, near the top of the engine.

To change clutch oil, first gather the necessary objects to remove or change it, then ensure your safety and turn everything off. Then remove it carefully, swap the new one in, and carefully check to see if everything works.

hi, My local garage charged £180 for the clutch plates replacement. That was on a P reg Mk5 1.25 8Valve engine. Should be similar.
