    When changing gear at low speeds and the clutch passes the half way point I get a slight judder. No problem getting into gear and not slipping. Absolutely fine at speed but when potting around town I've noticed it. Do you think its the flywheel?

    Flywheels very rarely give problems, especially in petrol engines.

    Is it juddering at the biting point only? Does it do it in every gear or only certain ones? Any noises or vibrations through the pedal? Possibly your clutch or pressure plate.

    Is the 114k miles on the clock on the original clutch?

    No idea if the clutch has been changed. No noise just a judder whike transitioning between gears at low speed. Haven't noticed any slippage and the biting point is spot on.

    Have you had the car long?

    Flywheels on petrols rarely go wrong, I would suggest that it is likely to be the original clutch. A juddering clutch is a sign it needs to be changed.

    Aside from warn clutch, other causes of clutch judder are contaminated surfaces or moisture on clutch.

    Does the problem only occur in the mornings ?

    Perhaps you are changing gear too soon?

    I have experienced this on petrol and diesel. Basically you need to rev a bit more and build speed in 1st before you change to 2nd and the same when going to 3rd.
