Firstly, is the clutch on an 806CDi (2000) cable or hydraulic? If feels like a cable. If so can anyone say how easy/difficult it is to change the cable? I've looked and can't even see where the clutch lever is on the flywheel housing - and it's not obvious how it comes through the bulkhead. Any info gratefully received.

Also, how difficult is it to change a timing belt on this monster. Looks as if a top engine mounting gets in the way. Does this have to come off before the cover can be removed?

Female adolescent drinking habits or because of the opposite sex more than

work at Virginia Commonwealth University Daniel? Dick said in a statement: "Our study found that girls may be more sensitive to the friend's drinking, if they have to drink the opposite sex, they will be more likely to drink . "Dick During the study period is an associate professor at Washington University in St. Louis. He said: "In addition, the genetic-based analysis shows that young people and the interlinkages between friends drinking, largely attributable to shared environment on the impact of the opposite sex."

806 clutch

It's a cable, and not too hard to change as long as you're careful.

Firstly, get under the car and remove the plastic pan that covers the underside of the engine bay (assuming that it still has its fitted). From above and looking down into the engine bay, on the nearside of the engine/gearbox unit, you'll see quite a meaty-looking cable coming from the back/underside and connected to a metal lever. That's the clutch cable connecting to the clutch lever- You'll see that the clutch lever has a cut-away section, which allows the removal of the cable from the clutch end. Now for the trickier bit (although not too bad if you're a professional contortionist!).
Lie down across the front of the vehicle's inside floor, so that you're in a position to look up to the top of the clutch pedal. Unhook the cable from where it fits to the top of the clutch pedal. This should be easier, having already disconnected the other end of the cable from the clutch lever. Now get back under the vehicle and follow the cable back from the clutch lever end, until you see where it passes through the bulkhead. Pull the outer cable out and the entire clutch cable will withdraw from the bulkhead.
Fitting a replacement cable is now a reversal of the procedure described above. IMPORTANT! Whatever you do, fit the pedal end of the new cable first and be absolutely sure that you don't remove the plastic shroud surrounding the part of the cable that butts up to the bulkhead until you have fitted the new cable at both ends. The reason for this is that this shroud holds together the cable's self-adjusting mechanism. Once the new cable is fitted at both ends, remove this shroud and then depress the clutch cable a couple of times. This will result in the cable self-adjusting and all should be well.

Hope this all makes sense, good luck!
