I had the same thing happen to my 2002 Mondeo 2.0 16v Mk3. Even some manufacturers petrol engines have dual mass flywheels too, like mine.

I too had to have clutch, plus CSC and dual mass flywheel changed at the time. Mine came in just shy of 750 for the parts (LUK parts) and labour (5 hours).

So its not just Renault's that this happens too, its all marque's of cars it seems.

Seems unfair to blame the car manufacturers as it seems they are all doing it, its probably just the likes of LUK or whoever makes the clutches / flywheels wanting to make more money.
