It is inside the bell housing so it is very advisable to change it.

Not needed to replace my QV's just yet, but I always replace usable parts that become accessible during the bigger strip downs like renewing the clutch parts.

Changing; Pressure Plate, Friction Plate, Crankshaft Oil Seal and Clutch Slave Cylinder (when inside bell housing).
Looking at what has caused the clutch to fail once access gained?

My other half has a tendency to use the clutch as is were as switch when out of first gear.
Foot down, change gear, accelerate too hard as clutch is being released, resulting in jerky changes and broken friction plate axial damping springs and me getting upset.

With high torque engines this is quickly lethal for the clutch, as is anything except perfect gear changes.

My comments every time when she's driving her car.
Thankfully she's preferring driving her 147 for the run a bouts and leaves me to the QV for longer drives.
The 147 clutch will need changing this year since it was already worn when we brought the car, but and allowed for this.

This belt changing and clutch will be a penny or two though on the G for Ryezy.
I got my QV serviced and cam/aux belts done back in February for £425 including MoT + Parts inc by me and some other mods.
