    Certainly not VX!
    Source the part yourself and get quotes from an idependant garage to fit it.

    About 5-6 hours labour I believe. PM G Man on here, he may be able to help.

    yes i believe it is around 5 hours to do, vx wernt really very interested in the job as they`d rather be doing easier work (servicing etc) i might even look into what the job entails and do it myself,if i remember rightly the hardest part is lining the bugger up with the shaft. its just time at the mo with work so busy!! i guess montyfox could have the answer, source the part myelf and get another garage to do the work,

    I'd be interested to know how easy it is to change the clutch on the zafira, I did the clutch change on my old Omega and that was an absolute nightmare but was all good once sorted.

    I would have thought from the look of it would be easier to do just not sure whats involved lol what would need to be moved to gain access.

    Good luck with the change if your going to do it yourself.
