Is it sensible to have the flywheel replaced when I have my clutch replaced on my GT?

Have to check for side to side play and decide based on that, if they've been looked after and driven well they have been known to do over 100k miles.

There is a large difference of opinion on this one ask two Alfa specialists first will say change it second will say no need .How many miles have you done if its a lot I would change it . To replace clutch is a big job, large part bill is for labour so to replace DMF then is no problem but if after say 20 thousand miles it goes but your clutch is ok its another large bill .I suppose its down to how long you intended to keep it .When I had to decide its was easy my Indy said change it its a must and I was intending to keep it another 3 years and I do on average 15000 a year

i say no not if its ok
had 2 alfas done clutch in both left flywheels alone first dd 130.000 on first clutch my gt did 111.000 on first clutch

alfas are pull clutch's and this puts tons of pressure on the release bearing which is what failed both times in ate into the pressure plate and wouldnt release properly........the "Clutch friction plate" was hardly worn and the dmf flywheeels where perfect, this is from hands on with my own eyes.....not word of a feller in a garage :-)

The release bearing is the Achilles heel of Alfa, if I would get 1euro for every clutch renewal job where only the release bearing was knackered, I could buy a new 911 !
