Not done one yet myself, but I'm told to change the dual mass flywheel at the same time of every clutch unless you put a single mass flywheel on... Which may be worth looking into if you have to replace.

No tools other than those one would normally need for a clutch change on any car. Easier if you drop the subframe but it can be done without doing so.

Only thing to note DO NOT ATTACH THE RELEASE BEARING TO THE PRESSURE PLATE.

Fit the pressure plate to the flywheel and the bearing to the arm, fit the box and then turn the arm on top of the housing (the bit the slave cylinder presses on) and the bearing will click into place on the pressure plate, that's the theory. Getting the box aligned and clicking the bearing into place can be troublesome.

Also check the bearing before fitting, read this thread (replacing the JTD clutch should not be this complicated)

If for any reason you need to separate a pressure plate and bearing have a look at this

Good luck

Loose - not close, compact, or tight in structure or arrangement
Lose - to part with or come to be without, as through theft, accident, negligence, etc.
