Is there no Valeo option?

The Valeo-kits I have seen have all been conversions to single-mass flywheel. Valeo seems to think it is a good idea to convert to SMF...

Sachs seems to make pretty good quality, been reading reviews. And they have a full kit with flywheel, clutch, screws/bolts and even grease is included. All OEN matches my car in that kit.

The point I was making was that a conventional clutch (cover, friction plate and release bearing) would not be sold with a flywheel as part of the kit - simply because conventional flywheels do not need replacing!

That's why I said your item looked like an SMF conversion kit, not least because these have conventional sprung clutches.

Good luck with your repair.

That's the one I linked to for a Valeo clutch:

Yes, we can't really comment on third party vendors - that has to be your decision - you have the Citroen part numbers, so just need to search on those.

Can't be bothered to read any more about flywheels and clutches, at some point it's enough and I've reached it :) Couldn't make up my mind if I should get LuK or Sachs kit for a while.

I ended up with the LuK set that includes 0532-T0 flywheel and 2052-N2 clutch-kit. They had a easter campaign with 23% off.

Thanks for all your input guys, I really appreciate it! Now I know much more about clutches n stuff :)

Now I'm just hoping the installment goes well, and I'll be driving this C5 many miles more. Will need to top up the eolys soon though. Only about a level of 10mm left in the tank... But that's another story.
