    unfortunately when doing the clutch you should always do the dmf at the same time

    garage should of advised as said above- everything I've read says change both clutch and flywheel if one of them goes and change the concentric slave cylinder too. sometimes saving money short term ends up costing more than you can imagine. did they not advise the complete kit chsnge first time round?? was it the same garage?? if so they'd have known you'd be back...........

    Is this covered by the Vaux Warranty if the car is under 3 years old? The reason i am asking is, that i think mine is slipping as well:-(

    My missus learnt the hard way. Changed the rattly DMF, and 800 miles later, the clutch plate literally shattered when she was driving!
