    There was an issue with the clutch on early 1.8s... It affected my 04 plate Elegance, just a slight judder sometimes when pulling away. VX said they'd look at it and pay for the repair if it turned out the problem was caused by the faulty clutch plate, but wanted a small fortune to strip it down and check it, to be paid by me if it turned out the problem was something else. I couldn't take the chance so just lived with it.

    Hi got the same problem with my 06 plate sri. The stealers want £630 to replace it but I got a qoute of £260 for fitting a clutch plus £85 for the release bearing if required. Booked in next week. Give Mick a ring on 0113242639. He's in Leeds but a quick trip down the M62 will save you £300. By the way Mick was recomended by Hairy31 who's just had his clutch and dmf done by Mick

    Thats what I thought. When I rang Mick told me he buys in bulk and only uses quality parts. By the way the name of the company is Leeds Gearbox and Clutch Co. Do a google, the've got a website.
