    Need help confirming if the clutch needs replacing?

    I'm a rookie at this, can you guys confirm this should be replaced. Haynes says should be 1/16" above the rivets and I have less. On occasion I did detect some slippage in 5th. FYI measured the one at the end of my finger not the rivet at the end of the vernier.

    Thanks guys!

    With that little left and it being out already, I would replace it. No need to risk scaring the flywheel for a 1,000 miles of driving.

    Don't just replace the clutch plate, the slippage can also be lack of force on the clutch from the pressure plate, If possible go for a heavy duty pressure plate if the clutch pedal felt 'light' There's no extra work involved except opening the wallet a little further. Even manufacturers can get this wrong sometimes, we had a new Astra turbo diesel that slipped in sixth, Vauxhall replaced flywheel, and clutch kit as a gesture of good will to over 100 cars that we knew of on the OC forum with the same problem.

    Take your clutch assembly to these guys in Burlington;

    They are the best AND the cheapest in my opinion.
    They can also increase the pressure of the pressure plate.
