the service manager texted me pics of the tranny and says a new flywheel is needed...I am planning on going down there tomorrow.... trouble is i am not exactly sure what to look for to see if he is pulling a fast one.. am i looking for scoring or grooves? like you would see on a brake rotor?... evidence of over heating?-- there does seem to be some blue discoloration in one picture, but then again, not sure what that means... I treid to attach the files as pictures using the FAQ but didn't have any success even when I tried to start a new thread-- my posting rules say I cannot send attachments? --- any advice would be appreciated...

Default End result and a big **thank you**

went to the dealership and inspected the fly wheel...tranny was very clean in side.. so that nonsense about the brake fluid leaking was over sold... clutch plate still looks useable but would probably need a new one in a few years anyway... flywheel was a little rusty but i rub it down with some brake cleaner and didn't find any grooves or blue burn marks... service manager looked at me funny when I pulled a magnifying glass out of my pocket to check for cracks...turned it back and forth to check the springs, only moved about an inch either way..so i told the service guy to use the old one... of course the tech who is doing the work said <<That new clutch is going to tear that flywheel up in no time>> as we were walking out of the bay... also wanted to shout out a big **thank you** to everyone who replied..nice to have an army of expertise to help me understand and good advice....

Well as I said earlier..the clutch is most likely fine as is the pressure plate..you should have at least 100,000 miles left on this..So how are they saying the clutch is bad or why?? if the housing is NOT fully/covered with fluid?..BUT this is your decision..if it was me ?....Oh well..Did they tell you how much to just replace the slave cylinder??.. Just curious..
