    Yes you will need a clutch kit. £339 +Vat. You may find one cheaper on ebay. The subframe has to be dropped to remove gearbox.

    I actually thought that the flywheel was solid on DTi ??

    Could be wrong though.

    How can a new clutch by £400 from VX, that is daylight robbery.

    I changed the release bearing in my old 2.0 DTi Vec B and that was about £100 for the part.

    The job is do-able if you have the time, skill, tools and facilities and (if it's anything like the Vec B) not that difficult, just a bit time consuming.

    Not changing the release bearing whilst you're there may be a false economy, as they invariably go soon afterwards.

    If you intend keeping the car, I would say change the clutch, pressure plate and release bearing. If you are thinking of getting shut anytime fairly soon, then I would say just fit a clutch plate. It may even be a good selling point, 'recent clutch replacement'.....

    I am sure there would be cheaper aftermarket sources for the clutch plate rather than VX dealer.

    If the clutch is only slipping when the tuning box is on (Ie more power), then I suspect that the clutch is on it's way out and it is only a matter of time before it gives way on the normal map.

    What special tool do you mention, what is it's purpose? I've not changed the clutch on any of my recent cars. My Vec B release bearing failure was the last time I had a gearbox off a recent car and i chose not to change the clutch at that time as it was in good condition and I was not keeping the car. Bought the Vec C about 6 months later.
