Ford C-MAX 1.8 TDCi - TDCi clutch replacement & flywheel - Ravenger

My 06 C-Max 1.8 TDCi has done 54,000 miles, and the clutch has started slipping in fifth under heavy acceleration, all the other gears are currently fine. The clutch bite is very high too, so it looks like the clutch is on the way out.

I rang around for some quotes, and the dealer price is approx £550 just for the clutch, but £1100(!) if both the clutch and the flywheel are replaced.

A local garage will do it for about £700 , but I understand this is a big job, so I'm reluctant to get a garage to do it that might not be experienced with my particular model of car.

Is it necessary to get the flywheel replaced along with the clutch? I'm just wondering if it'd be safer in the long run to get the flywheel changed at the same time, just in case, despite the extra expense.

The small garage will probably have more experience than the main agents ,if the flywheel is not damaged why change it or you want put a normal flywheel and clutch and get rid of the DM for ever.
