    Clutch ain't the problem. Loads out there. 180 - 220 ish. Vauxhall want 1400 for clutch kit and flywheel. Obviously not getting clutch from them.

    So looking like 1k bill. Will be ready tomorrow night if flywheel turns up when it should.
    Don't understand this matt,,could your garage not get one from a national spares place,ie europarts

    Luk have pulled them all. I actually looked as well, no flywheel available anywhere for the insignia 170 engine. Can get a make called VM but they expensive for a cheapo.
    All sites quick to say yes, until you start checking details.

    Phil...……...yep, correct.

    I only had the car over 3 weeks and had only done 426 miles since buying it and it started slipping.

    car was showing 42k on the clock
    contacted the garage and they took it in, checked it and confirmed the clutch was on its way out......Bought it from a VX dealer, so it was still under their warranty.

    cost me £0.00 but got the invoice from them as proof of the work being completed using genuine VX parts - £1786
