I don't have any pics or video, but it is pretty straightforward. The clutch master cylinder rod should detach with the unclipping of the rod from the pedal linkage under the dash. Disconnect the electrical connector from the clutch interlock switch while you are under there. The master cylinder detaches from the firewall after removing the fasteners from the firewall in the engine compartment. The slave detaches from the transmission by unclipping the big clip holding it on. Drag the whole assembly out. That's it. Cheers!

You may have to rotate the master after removing the fasteners that bolt it to the firewall; I vaguely recall having to do that on mine.

On the slave, there's a clip holding the slave rod in, keeping it from maxing out coming out of the cylinder. KEEP that clip on there, so its "nose" becomes the thing that contacts the fork. Then unclip the two "ears" on the clip that hold it onto the slave body. This will allow the slave rod to deploy and push the fork without breaking that clip. This way you can, in the future, re-clip that clip to the slave body, which will make it easier to remove the slave if you ever have to.
