I don't want to discourage your friend from using one of the Rover parts specialists, such as Pierre who also replied -- or yourself for other parts, but I think that the clutch disk and pressure plate are the same as those for some Volvos of that era.  Does anyone have a more definitive cross reference to confirm this?  Local foreign auto parts shops may still list these parts too.

I have a friend in need of a  new clutch disc, release bearing, and pressure
plate for a 2000 TC. Does anyone have that? James Dean, Ft. Lauderdale
