    I've managed to source a second hand box for my 2.5tdi, apart from a new clutch what other jobs are worth doing while I'm taking the box out?

    It's a facelifted 2wd by the way.

    Cheers in advance.

    Check the needle bearing in the end of the flywheel and replace if necessary and also check the flywheel for play...

    I take it the needle bearing doesn't come in a clutch kit?

    Any advice on where to get one? The car has done over 190K now so I might as well change it while the box is off.

    Try the dealer...or ECP but when there is soo much labour involved i would allways go for the genuine part !
