    I bit the bullet this week and had a new clutch and flywheel fitted. The clutch had been slipping for a while, but it got steadily worse over the past few weeks. I also had a new water pump and thermostat fitted while it was in the workshop.
    All good so far, any nonsense I'll let you know

    How much did each bit cost or was it a job lot price? Also where did you have the work done?

    What mileage? Having to change the flywheel was unfortunate and expensive.

    Mileage was 130,000.
    I trawled the internet for info about changing the clutch, and changing the flywheel at the same time was advised because of the high mileage.
    Members of Landyzone, with far more knowledge than myself, also recommend a flywheel change at such high miles.
    Anyway the jobs done and I can drive uphill now :)

    At 1
    At 130K it was probably a marginal call but better to change it with the clutch out now than have it fail in 6 months. ;)

    What price peace of mind.

    Got my FL booked in for new clutch and flywheel as its also at same mileage with slipping clutch. My trusted garaged advised for small saving in just having the clutch done may as well have flywheel done for peace of mind.

    I think there is a bolt which is kinda hidden by the IRD. I believe you can do the job without removing the IRD but it makes the job much harder, especially when refitting.

    If its a td4 then you have to remove the ird to get to the hidden bolt, its easier with it out of the way :)

    I'd rather spend an extra 1/2 hour removing the IRD than a shorter time struggling and cursing with it in the way.
