Dualmass flywheel + clutch life ?

Anyone no what life expectancy I should expect from my flywheel and clutch, on my 19 GT JTDM only had the car a year 47500 on the clock and had to have them replaced , clutch was very heavy , and when the garage took it out to replace said flywheel was worn , EXPENSIVE trip to the garage to say the least !!

Depends on use - Motorway or City. 50k is probably low for motorway but average for city.

What was wrong with it other than being heavy ? Slipping, gear selection problems ? Heaviness is a known problem with the diesel and doesn't necessarily mean the clutch is faulty. Unfortunately unscrupulous garages will try and convince you to change it regardless.

For what its worth my 2.4 JTD (which uses same clutch & flywheel) had a clutch replacement around 70k, no flywheel. At 130k clutch and flywheel was changed. At 180k clutch was changed again, no flywheel.

2.4 JTDs tend to be a bit easier on flywheels than the 1.9s. A lot of it comes down to driving style and use too.
