Hi peanut1, The flywheel can be checked with the gearbox out by checking how many teeth movement is in it, but it is good practice to put a complete kit in as if it fails in a few months you will have to pay the labour to strip ity all down again. Hope that helps Dave

Generally speaking the DMFs on petrol models last ok, on the diesels you should ALWAYS change them with the clutch. Never had to change one on a petrol yet, but there's always a first time!

Very cheap--------as long as he knows what he's doing! If not it might be very expensive!

If you get a three part kit including the concentric it won't cost much more. It's not usually really neccessary (leave well alone theory!) but is the best idea for the sake of another 25 or so.
