Clutch - flywheel Housing explosion

Hi Guys

Need some help with this one..

Driving along and heard a loud bang -- short story - There is a big hole 6 inches by 2inches ..in the clutch/flywheel housing with bits of metal everywhere inside.. The clutch is screwed anyhow....

Q. What caused this? How hard would it be to replace flywheel/clutch/Housing myself? & likely cost... Im not too bad with a spanner but have never undertaken a clutch...

Your help is much appreciated

Fran

Re: Clutch - flywheel Housing explosion

Has the flywheel itself shattered, or just the clutch mech?
