Alfa 159 diesel clutch gearbox problem

Just posted my first thread and realised title insufficient, so here we go again. Son has 159 diesel. Clutch failed at 40K miles and then again at 50K miles. After replacing it main dealer announced a gear box problem (possibly input shaft bearing). Insists that there is no connection between clutch failures and gearbox problem. Will be glad to hear from anyone with similar experience.

I too had a clutch at 40ish thousand, about 3k miles ago and swear I felt it slip again the other day..... I also have a cyclic noise at low speed/gear ie driving round car parks and did wonder if two were connected, my Mrs wont be pleased if Im having a new clutch every 12 months.....

Keep us informed, would be good to hear the outcome....
