    It's not a job for faint hearted.

    its not hard just involved.

    Depends how good your are with spanners.

    Its best to have second person to help with moving box out the the way

    If your a novice dont attempt,even the sub frame has to be dropped on the cdti,if you do make sure you clean the bell housing out thoroughly before new parts fitted.

    I understand the parts alone cost in the region of £450 (clutch complete) so my quote of £619 fully fitted with 2 yr warranty was enough to stop me rolling my sleves up!

    I hate anyone else working on my car as they dont show the TLC I do but for a job like this I will stand back!

    I love your reply fella

    You should have added that :-

    Don't do it yourself without a ramp and big jacks
    Don't do it yourself if your better half, or the helper's better halves are expecting you home in time for tea or an evening out.
    Don't do it yourself unless you are prepared to pretty much take apart most of the "underneath" of the car - wheels, steering stuff, engine mounts, bumper, exhaust to name but a "few".
    Don't do it yourself UNLESS you have someone like @Critch at hand, and an "understanding" WIFE

    I couldn't let this one pass critch mate without commenting after seeing you sort out Mark's car (cont1204) last weekend.
    A HUGE job, even with all the equipment and tools. VERY Impressive fella

    Dont listen to all of the other post just read this one....

    Changing the flywheel is really easy its only bolted on with a few bolts, getting to it is a ****** nightmare though and possibly the biggest pain in the ar$e job you could be thinking of doing.

    On that note i wish you good luck...you have been warned!!!
