Clutch replacement, need to replace the flywheel too!?
So for the last few days my cars clutch has slowly been dying. It makes a noise whenever it's held in and squeels between gear changes. My mechanic said that it will maybe last another week and that the flywheel usually needs replacing too!?
Is this true? If so, is it worth getting oem parts, they are rather expensive.
I have read the article on changing the clutch from pelican parts but it seems a bit too much for one weekends work.
Thanks for any input,
