A above, push the clutch in, and it screams its nads off, Release bearing maybe? - Any ideas of cost from local independant garage / how many hours?

Not really but it wont be cheap, it means removing the gearbox which is quite a job. I would guess at about 6 hours labour plus parts. You may well find that the clutch and DMF need changing as well.

Possibly not, it didn't in the Xantia anyway. Have a look on ebay and see if they list one for the 90hp.

Five hours for the full clutch...the 90 is the easiest of the lot...definitely NO DMF.
