Corsa B clutch cable snapped

Hello,

currently I have a temporary fix from the AA man sorted for me at the side of the road, which means the clutch is about as high as my chin when i'm driving, and is obviously only temporary fix.

I think it looks like an easy job but i've never done anything "car" before, but i'm fairly apt with my hands.

I just don't really want to take it to the garage when it's a 20 quid part and they'll probably fleece me.

I'm not stupid for wanting to do this myself out in the street am I?

Thoughts please

No - I would imagine that it'll be fairly easy, but I've never done one on a Corsa. Get yourself a Haynes workshop manual pronto (and you may see pictures of one of my friends' hands in it) and suss out what it will involve

Last time I did one is was much like changing a brake cable on a bike.

Really easy.

...unless it's a RHD K plate Clio, which retains the same layout as the LHD Clio for the clutch cable and therefore induces all manner of rude words!
