    Question V6 diesel replace clutch

    a bit like earlier post by v6diesel I've been a bit concerned about unpleasant grindy noise when clutch pedal pushed an inch or so in, and noticeable when changing gear in the lower gears and town driving.

    I've already been quoted a grand (or so) to replace clutch by dealer as an advice warning during recent visit with dealer suggesting clutch starting to slip. But that was probably because of the smell of burning in the car which caused by getting stuck in deep snow in a highland glen when I had to give it massive revs (and some locals pushing) to get free. Clutch aint slipping at all...but car smelt pretty barbecued for weeks.

    But if this is my dual mass flywheel or something else - how can I be sure or should I just get the whole clutch replaced...? I want to be sure before I fork out a grand, and I DON'T trust the dealer...!
