    heres a good test. whack your handbrake on really hard, put the car into first gear, and lift up clutch. the car should stall. if not, then im afraid u have a fooked clutch. gona cost ya around the £350 mark. mite aswell get it fixed while repairing the dmf mate. hth.

    PaZ!

    Try the handbrake idea. Put the handbrake in firmly. try to start off in 1st gently the rear of the car should "sink" and the car not move too much.

    Think for piece of mind you should pay for the clutch kit aswell on wednesday for your own piece of mind

    How much would you want to slap yourself if the clutch started badly slipping a month or 2 after the gearbox has already been out
