    Daft question probably but the clutch bit is very high on my 110TDI? Right at the top off the pedal high, the clutch isn't slipping though? :faint:

    Ours has been like that since we baught the car 30k miles ago, your knees up past your ear before it actually bites :p

    However, I'm not going to change it unless it actually fails, or starts to slip. The DMF will undoubtedly need done too, and thats £££, with the other option being a single mass unit which is less money but still expensive.

    Not to mention the fact that changing it is a bit of a bugger!

    Saying all that, i dont actually know if the TDi has a DMF, so it might be less expensive in your case.

    Theres a few sinlge mass conversions now for the DMF I've just put a single mass on the GTI 1.8t it's cheaper and lighter and it's been on a few months with no probs. :redrs4:

    Ye they do exist, Flywheel is usually around £250ish though.

    Your TDi might already have a solid flywheel though.
