    Yes, I also changed mine at around 140 000km and it wasn't worn down to service limits yet... But I did do 85-90% open road travelling.

    Re: GV Clutch Shudder - what gives?

    On mine the flywheel was skimmed and the whole clutch assembly replaced. Apparently the pressure plate had failed.
