turbocharged 90hp 1.9L I4 Diesel 5-speed manual FWD

91000 mi US $400 The dual-mass flywheel failed, allowing too much play. The clutch was slipping occasionally, though the clutch lining was not worn out. 
95000   Left CV axle replaced to eliminate vibration under acceleration. 
122000   Replaced passenger-side axle. The inner boot had ripped, and the upcharge for the whole assembly was small enough that I decided to not attempt to rebuild the inner joint. Also replaced ball joint.
