Am installing a starter motor. I have to remove
I wouldn't replace this bushing unless it's obviously worn out. I know of this recommended method when a puller is not available, pack the bearing bore with grease and use a socket and extension or similar rod that fits snug as possible in the bearing bore and hit this tool with a hammer as to use a hydraulic effect. the pressure of the grease will push the bearing out. This method is used on, rear wheel driven, flywheel bushing removal. Good luck!

The hose that goes to
You have air in the clutch slave cylinder . As old as it is I suspect you now have a bad master cylinder.
Why? Because over-stroking the pedal when low on fluid tends to **** in all the dirt that accumulates in the bottom of the system and damages the hardened old seals.
The clutch slave cylinder is on top of the bell housing and it has a 7mm across it's flats, bleed nipple.
This is a two man job without a pressure bleeder. Have someone press clutch down and you open slave bleeder, close bleeder and lift up pedal slowly.
Repeat, topping of the fluid reservoir, until firm pedal.
The brake reservoir also supplies fluid to the clutch. If the fluid gets low or clutch leaks, the reservoir is so designed to still allow fluid for the brake system.

Lambda probe fault possibly
I bought a 2000 polo 1.4 yesterday after having an MOT. The warning lamp came on today but the car is running fine. Whether its the Lambda sensor or just the light itself is a common fault, I think garages turn off the lights to get it through the MOT then they come on again in a day or two!
