    Im just wondering whats the average mileage of the diesels needing a new clutch. I know it all depends how you drive etc but im just wondering if mine has had one at 160,000. Its has FHSH but cannot find a receipt for a clutch. i have no problems with it i was just wondering thats all lol

    As you say, it really does depend how she's been driven. I believe the general consensus is wait until it starts to slip.
    If it was changed to an aftermarket one, they do feel different, but otherwise I don't know how you could tell.

    The more knowledgeable guys should be able to give you a better answer.

    I've got 165k on mine bought at 136k, in the same boat you, no signs of slipping and no evidence that previous owner changed it.

    I did have probs with the biting point moving up and down and the pedal getting stiff. It turned out the input shaft needed lube. the increased friction against the throwout bearing was causing the clutch fluid to boil and it stressed my clutch slave to breaking point.
