    If your clutch needs replacing is there another job you should do at the same time?

    Complete drain and refill of gearbox oil.
    Also closely inspect your driveshaft boots!

    not necessary in my opinion.
    motorhomes dont do intergalactic mileages so throwing away good old oil to be replaced by good new oil.
    Recommended change period may be in excess of 80000 miles.

    More important would be a fifth gear upgrade on older model Fiats while the box is out, if it hasnt been done.

    For the sake of less than £20 of oil? If the clutch is shot, its fair to assume the van has done a few miles!

    Why are motorhomers so tight?:Rofl1:

    if the oil was meant to be changed at relatively low mileages the manufacturers would specify a lower mileage in the service schedule.

    Not a case of being tight

    I have never changed a clutch on my own vehicles, and never changed the box oil on any vehicle unless its been due.

    Clutches wear prematurely by incorrect use and abuse
