if the dmf is needing done which usually is the case it gets very expensive my mate gets a lot of diesels traded in for either dmf or dpf issues and as such does not take many diesels at all the joy of running cheap diesels :rolleyes:

yes dmf's are not the cheapest part to replace but the op was asking about a clutch and slave clynder.

Yes he was, he stated that his clutch was slipping, but a duel mass flywheel comes as part and parcel of the job, not worth changing one without the other ?

Not 100% sure if yours actually does have one, ive never owned a tddi, you'll need someone who has changed a clutch on one for that info, if it hasn't then your clutch should'nt be too expensive a job, fingers crossed for you lol.
