Hi there,

My clutch is slipping just when it feels like it. Slipped for a week then stopped for a month, then started again, so time has come to replace it as its annoying now, so what else should I replace when I do parts wise, timing chain was done at 89k and at 104k now, also I'll be doing a full service as well get it out the way again, I was thinking of a stage 1 clutch as it will be better for fast road driving and take a little more punishment too over standard,

A 3 piece kit consists of friction plate, pressure plate and CSC (slave cylinder)

The flywheel should be fine, I have replaced one in the past on a car which was driven very hard throughout it's life, it was full of cracks and probably best the point of exploding!

When I had my old Focus I used to find the clutch would slip for the first half mile then be fine all day after that, ampst like there was dampness on the flywheel sorta thing.

Cheers for.that yea mine just seems to slip when it feels like it. done 500 miles since first time it started. An still going. noticed if I don't put the foot right done and let it build up a little then floor it then its fine.but will just change it anyway and do gear box seals as you mention. Then least there done.

Can't complain, 13 years from the presumably original steel lines.

I personally prefer kunifer brake pipe, it's easier to work with than steel but more difficult than copper but much more resistant to corrosion and less likely to fracture through vibration. All brake lines should be supported regularly - more so with copper.

It costs a couple of quid more per pack than copper but IMO it's worth it.

The cheap nasty tools available are only any use with copper so worth bearing that in mind. I use a Sykes tool but it ain't cheap to buy for just one job.
