They are not that hard to be honest undo the allen bolts and it comes apart, do it slowly and lay out as you take it apart you will easily see how it goes back together or any probs ask on here im sure a few of us have done it

Do you just use a standard clutch compressor and then undo the bolts?
I was told it needed a vice and can't be done roadside.

I've recently put one in a new engine but stripped it down and deburred the plates and corks as it was 'cocking' over when compressed. Glad I did, they were a bit of a mess. I used a compressor but as Toddy says you dont need to, just unwind each allen bolt a bit at a time to allow the springs to lift equally. Here's some photos showing it coming apart without removing the from the case... on its side like you're next to the A1!!!
