    I suppose it depends on the condition of the clutch when they open it up. I wouldn't think it would be replaced as a matter of course, unless it has been damaged by the faulty DMF. No doubt they will contact you and say it needs replacing and charge you for those parts and any extra labour, if you choose to have it done.

    I'd say if the flywheel's being done anyway, you'd be as well to get the clutch done at the same time as it's all out anyway just for the hell of it. Depends what mileage is on your car I guess. I think if it was me I'd be doing it regardless.

    This thread bring a feeling of deja vu... but anyway, no, they won't replace anything that hasn't failed prematurely. If the clutch is still serviceable then they refit the same one.

    Only from personal experience when I bought my car I was unable to test drive it as it was having, under warranty, DMF, clutch & slave fitted. at 34K miles so it is done in full on occasions.

    They won't necessarily change it if it's not worn ... But owing to the exceptional circumstances behind yours Don I would be asking that it's replaced too FREE OF CHARGE
