no holes to cut, on a RHD there is an oval panel on the firewall that you need to punch out for the master cylinder to poke its tail out and connect to the hardline in the engine bay, and a rubber gasket to make it water proof. The oval is pressed into the chassis when built so comes out if you tap it a few times with a ballpein hammer. not sure if LHD is the same?

no you don't, have never used one. get the 10mm 1/4" drive 1" long socket most socket sets come with and wrap a few layers of sticky tape around the outside to make it snug in the clutch hole, with a 3" 1/4"drive extension on it, then slip another socket over the top the is the same size as the center of the pressure plate. I use 100% Bahco tools

that said, ive heard some clutch kits will come with a plastic alignment tool to suit, but i have only ever brought OEM
