    The description suggest it's the clutch release bearing. A mechanic would recognise it in seconds.
    Premature failure isormally caused by people resting their foot on the clutch pedal when driving: a very bad habit, but it will have been a previous owner who did the damage, and there's no way to tell.

    Dealers normally only have managers and apprentices. You need to go to a smaller garage to get skilled mechanics.

    I certainly would have gone to my local garage, if it wasn't for the fact that the van is still under warranty.

    Even though there is no noise when the engine is ticking over in neutral and the clutch pedal released, could it still be the release bearing?

    Serious question

    What advantage does a dual mass flywheel give, apart from profit to the motor industry..
