    Default clutch do i need to replace

    over the last few days i have removed the gearbox (f40) from my 1.9 cdti 150 to replace DMF and now that i have it off i can see the DMF is broken with lots of movement in all directions.

    The clutch however looks brand new as does pressure plate, the clutch thickness is still nearly at 7.8mm, only sign of any wear is on release bearing top where pressure plate springs have been in contact.

    I know many will say replace all since its out but as budget is very tight not having to buy a clutch kit would be a very welccme bonus.

    will fitting a new DMF and using the ssaame clutch cause any real problems ?

    When I had my DMF replaced after 100k the clutch was fine so it went back in with the new DMF and 35k miles later the clutch was still fine so I would say if the clutch is ok you would be fine to save some money and put it back in.

    I'd say you'd be ok to keep it. The main reason for replacing the clutch at the same time as the dmf doesn't really apply here, as you have the knowledge and equipment to do it your self. So if the clutch does go in the near future your only cost will be your time (unless the it takes out your new dmf too).
