It's actually quite time consuming. You need to start by removing the battery, air box, and starter before you can actually start unbolting the tranny so that you can replace the clutch. A lift is necessary, well at least if you want it completed under a week. And an impact wrench is a life saver

Classic problem with Spyder. The latch cable has problems releasing the engine latch. Pull hood release inside car then go arround to back and push down on hood. It should pop the latch. Try several times if that doesnt work the first time.
