have been reading through the history of my car recently and have noticed that there seems to be reciepts for almost every service and other minor bits and bobs but cant see any history of the clutch being changed, was just wondering if at 93k i should be concerened and how long can any 1 clutch plate last, is it possible for it to be the original clutch

On the 850s and v70s ive known clutchs need replacing as low as 70k but I know of them lasting 230k, Should do well over 100k without to much issue!

As far as I am aware my '98 s40 2.0T is still on its original clutch at almost 160K.

Not had it long, if i remember it had 140ish on it when I got it. Now has a Towbar and caravan to pull, somehow I dont think it will last much longer

theres nothing like giving it some abuse till the smell of burning clutch fills the air lol
