Right clutch has started to judder now, quite noticeably. I have had a couple of quotes, first one was Mr. Clutch for £363 and the other is a local clutch specialist for £369 all in.
Is this any good??
Also as an after thought, how easy are the wheel bearings to do and is there a How to anywhere?

Many Thanks ;) :)

Whoever you choose make sure they free up and lubricate the clutch arm pivot assembly as they are prone to siezure. Wheel bearings on the front normally require pressing out with an hydraulic press but I'm sure a little heat and brut force will also work.

As far as I'm aware the rears come in a ready assembled hub so should be a lot easier to fit.

Easy enough if you are mechanically minded and get a little help. I'm sure someone on here nearby would willingly assist. Even if you were to pay them.

Everyone says dont bother going to a garage as they will just replace with the same crappy plastic parts!?

Im told I should be getting a sheddist kit?!

But who do I get to fit it? I certainly couldnt!?

Sheddist kit is in relation to the clutch hydraulics and is a great improvement over the factory plastic crap which tends to fail. It will give you a nice smooth action and a much lower pedal height. When you say time for a new clutch, I thought you were on about the driven plates?

The sheddist kit seems to be the way forward.

If i am lucky enough to get hold of one from him, do I just take it to a local garage and get them to fit it?

I am on about the driven plates, already have a sheddist kit fitted so I know it's not the hydraulics.
