In this forum (drivetrains), there is a sticky at the upper part of page 1 that is fairly good - if you want to just change the clutch. Its title is: How-To: 1.9 Transmission Removal/Replacement

I have found that about the time/distance the clutch is worn out on a car, there are other things I want to 'freshen' in the motor - so the old motor stuff wont be annoying me with work under the hood while the new clutch is working fine.

You might want to check out replacing the REAR MAIN SEAL if your car has a lot of miles ( mine had a zillion ). It's a piece of cake once you have it all apart. I used the 'drilling a small hole in the seal and drywall screw' trick. Be very careful and don't scratch the crank , AT ALL.
Any of those things you can't do without taking the trans off you want to check out completely. While you have the chance.
Axle seals are also a whole lot easier to change with the transaxle on the ground.
