Clutch is going out. Last time I drove it, I had to baby it in every gear as it won't grab solid if I try to accelerate hard. What are my chances that the flywheel needs to be replaced as well? The shop I have decided on mentioned that I may need to have that replaced as well and I just don't want to be taken for a ride figuratively. I don't hear any metal-on-metal contact, but I'm not sure if I would "hear" that or not. I would imagine if that did happen I would get great clutch response, at least for a little while until I broke something.
Assuming you still have the original clutch & flywheel, I would replace the flywheel. Unless you want to remove the transaxle again in 20, or 30K miles to do it then.
