    Hi,
    I am new to the forum and have just read this post. I had a new clutch fitted to my 98 B5 1.8 T sport avant just over a year ago, the flywheel was also replaced due to excess movement. I did have a small amount of judder until everything had bedded in, for a couple of hundred miles. I was told this was to be expected and to be gentle with it.
    Hope this helps

    Mike

    really? flywheel shouldn't need changing unless damaged or faulty. was the surface OK?
    May need a bit of time to bed in, give it some welly and see how you get on

    I phone my local supllier at work the other day for a price on mine and he said both have to be changed at the same time. :shrug: i asked a few people and they all said the same thing.
