Clutch slippage Honda accord 2006, 2.2 diesel. New gear-box

Clutch slippageHonda accord 2006, 2.2 diesel. New gear-box in 2009 (when I bought it). Since then ~45000miDeveloped a mild clutch slippage just recently (a couple of weeks).Question: to change just the clutch-kit, or the flywheel++ as well (why???). Are compatible replacement kits (not Honda brand) reasonably good enough for my not so young car? I am worried to overspend my overstretched pension :(Many thanks

I have fiat 500 twin air on a 2011 plate and when I try to reverse on a up hill it does not want to know and even when I put my foot down on the excellerator it seems like it's been restricted to rev. But if I put it in neutral it will rev no problem. Then putting it back in to reverse it won't have none of it. Quite embarrassing if someone is behind me waiting so now I don't park reverse on any incline. What do you think maybe the problem.

I had been driving for an hour or so when I found I couldn't change gear. I stopped the car and nothing happened. I managed to reverse the vehicle (Vauxhall Astra Exclusif 113) to park it. I tried changing gear but nothing happened. I spent 10 minutes trying to phone the RAC but there was no signal. I got back into the car and found I could change gear and everything seemed to work again. What was that about?
