    i think there are some available on ebay, but you are looking at £400 plus and then the labour charge on top. Bear in mind, some other threads have said that if you have to change the DMF, then it is cost effective to change the clutch too if haven't already (depending on mileage and age etc). Hope this helps

    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Default

    TBH if the car has done any more than 20k on the original clutch, change it.

    No point in fitting a flywheel and then having to pay extra labour to change the clutch later on.

    I am going to get some quotes tomorrow, the missus is blowing a gasket here, just had timing belt and water pump done.

    Its going to be allot more costly if the flywheel splinters though. The ladies dont understand these things. The remap will have to wait now

    My dmf started rattling for 4 months before I changed it myself, parts cost £500 there or thereabouts, you will need dmf and a clutch kit i.e. friction plate, pressure plate and thrust bearing plus some fresh gearbox oil and clutch fluid. On top of that you have fitting cost. My car had done around 100k and the clutch was hardly worn but i did not want to risk having to do the job again.
    All this because a plastic ring , yes plastic ring gives way, its a p****r I can tell you and is seen in one of my previous threads with pictures. The manufacturers of these flywheels need to sort this problem fast if not done so already!!!!
