    You will need the following

    DMF
    Clutch kit which should include the clutch release bearing

    Unless you are planning on keeping it all nice and dry you don't need a cover

    Your parts above come to £652.74 incl the vat

    This link to decent LUK parts come to £457.50 (I assumed yours is 1.9 cdti 8v - but I was gusessing)

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-V...item19cc656e3b

    Bearing in mind the discount the garage will get they are making well over £200 on the parts alone......

    If you added the 210 lbour but supplied the parts yourself from the link, it would be around £670ish

    Lots of garages wont let the customer supply the parts cos they wanna make the mark up.........

    Also be aware of what type gearbox you have as well!!!! The link above is for an F40 gearbox where as mine is a CDTi 8v and my car uses M32 gearbox (6 speed manual) just a heads up really

    Good luck getting it sorted
