I`d be willing to bet one turns up on eBay if there isn`t one on there already.

Does it have to be Valeo?

I stuck a QH one in our Visa Diesel from the local factors, half the price and gave no trouble.

If Luk are the same as Valeo (and it is 'IF') have a look at Euro car parts - have on line shop and prices are good. Some other BX bits very cheap and available which may mean they are getting rid of stock.

I recently bought a LUK clutch for a XMtd, when I opened the box it was all stamped up with Valeo markings all over it.

Good news as they are a bit cheaper and have the same warranty, I'm told. :)

most of them hanging about these days are remanufactured clutches anyway, hence an LUK reman could be a valeo with new pads. Its only a brake disc really!

There are loads of EBC reman ones floating about for silly money (theres one on ebay i think, £40 BuyItNow,) and there really really good if push comes to shove and you want one cheap!


If you DO get that car then i can probably come and give you a guiding hand!

clutch

As Vanny says a lot of clutches are just re-manufactured units so chances are you will have Valeo stamped on the parts.

Don't know what car you want the clutch for but if they don't list it they will be able to get it.
