    confused Clutch Noise / Kit

    I've browsed through a few posts & also from past experiences (especially on an Escort XR3..... 3 clutches in 6 months at one stage) I'm sure my Vectra's clutch release bearing is on its way out. It's got all the symptoms, slight noise when idling, more noise when pressed gently & then it goes quiet when fully depressed.

    There is nothing at all wrong with the clutch itself, no juddering, no slippage, e.t.c so I doubt the fault is with the fancy flywheel, I just want to replace the whole clutch assembly before something goes wrong - I use the car daily for work so I can't really afford for it to be off the road for too long which it would be if it "expired".

    This leads me to my question - where on earth can you get prices for an aftermarket (or genuine) clutch kit? I've tried everywhere on the net, nothing for the 1.9CDTi 120. According to earlier threads, VX charge around £600 fitted, but I'm pretty sure I can do this myself, if only I can find a kit? If not, is there anywhere that can fit one for a touch less than £600?

    Try Vx parts counter for the kit, but be aware it's a hydraulic bearing so it's not cheap..if you've got access to a ramp, and an engine beam, then there really is no reason why you shouldn't have a go yourself if you've done others before....

    Cheers M8, I'll give them a try. I done about 9 or 10 clutches, all but 1 on FWD cars. My old 1990 Astra was the easiest, complete clutch change in less than 2 hours - somehow doubt this one will be the same!

    amazingly, it won't be 'that' different...most of the stuff is identical...

    While the clutch is off, just have a peek at the flywheel and it's condition.. its better to know what it's like now than after putting it all back together again....

    also, pressure bleed the clutch bearing/slave cylinder..much easier than pushing that pedal..
