    You'll want :
    - clutch
    - bearing
    - dmf
    - csc
    - brake fluid
    Those are the needed parts

    You might want to consider replacing the gearbox oil also...

    Forgot the 1.8 actually has the f17 gearbox...

    so apart from dmf alls good? will the driveshaft seals need replacing? is it best to just use the old bolts or replace them? was also thinking should i replace both drive shafts as its coming apart anyways. at same time im fitting a new track rod end kit. and if im able depending if i remove engine from the car, i have a full timing belt kit to go on. both belts, tensioner, water pump. just wondering should i replace any other bits like aux belt tensioner/pulleys

    If you are going to do everything you might aswel hire an engine hoist loosen the 4 engine mounts and lift the whole lot out, that way you can get around and do it all in one go... because it gives you access to everything .. that said aux belt and tensioner will be a goodthing to do also... all in all it won't be cheap to you do it all... and back to your driveshafts.. no if they are fine keep 'em... only spend money where it is needed.

    Service parts, oil, filters, plugs etc will add to the bill also so look at it and how long it will take to do it all... you'll have a big paperweight in the time you are doing all of that.

    thanks. i already have the bits apart from gearbox oil and aux belt tensioner. havent bought driveshafts.. with the track rod ends seperate from the kit as mistakenly i have 4.. 2 with kit and 2 seperately. all brand new. the ones seperately move, the ends. but the ones in the kit are rigid. which ones are best to use.. ive checked into engine hoist £46 to hire for a week. not sure if u get delivery or pickup included. when removing engine does bonnet need removed and also do the straps come with the hoist or buy my own. many thanks. oh totally forgot while out i may aswell clean it and clean inlet manifold

    If you hire an engine hoist it should come with either chains with hooks or straps... just ask if they come with it.

    Use the new ones they shouldn't move like that.

    Yes you'll need to remove the bonnet... sounds like extra work but it is less work than dropping the subframe and than trying to get the gearbox out... (it only comes out one way and you'll have to put it back in the same way but in reverse)

    Also by using the engine hoist you have more than enough space to do the cam belt and auxiliary bits...

    But you'll loose your aircon gas and the coolant. You'll also will need to detach any looms, pipes and hoses that connect to the engine... just so you know

    Yes it is more work but you are doing it all in one go so you are better off using an engine hoist.

    thanks, thats what i was thinking. they are brand new the track rod ends. im wondering if u buy items seperate do they move, instead of being in a kit.(which will be rigid) but anyhow i will use the kit which has 2 track rod ends, 2 inner rods, and the 2 rubber covers. as long as nothing goes wrong im hoping a week will be enough time. i have coolant. as wiith the aircon, its a good time to replace the grill as its a bit damaged. i have already put a new radiator on. i will get on to europarts about those 2 track rod ends.when u mentioned bearings, are those for the driveshafts at engine end? any seals needed replacing clutch. sorry all these questions but i just want to make sure i have everything needed.
