    Slipping clutch

    My clutch in my convertible has started to slip when I change gear and accelerate. Should I change the clutch and DMF or just the clutch?????

    You can get the DMF checked I think? I was told mine was ok so left it alone as they're quite expensive to change as a precaution!

    Thread resurrection!! Anyone know the fitted price for just the clutch, and also for clutch and flywheel. Think my clutch is on way out, biting point seems high, won't do it yet, just want to budget for it when it's needed!

    cheers for any help

    Hi Brillo, thanks for this! Seems a lot, am I right in thinking it would cost less on a 1.8t (or just optimistic!).
    did you get your car from SMC or somewhere else?

    Slipping clutch

    Changed just the clutch in mine a couple of months ago and touch wood it's been fine so far.
    My best mate who is a mechanic changed just the clutch on his 530d 8 years ago and the DMF is still ok.
