What is the effect of a missing screw fitting clutch-kit to flywheel?
Actually in my Linea T-Jet, I had to change (replace) it's clutch kit and actuator (I.e. a single unit consisting clutch bearing and slave cylinder). On refitting every thing and remounting the gearbox as usual, it was found that he fitted only 8 screws and missed 1 while mounting and fixing clutch kit cover on the flywheel! To fit this 1 screw again the whole labour of removing the gearbox and refitting it is required which is very strained and painstaking job again. The mass of that 1 screw is just 7.00 gm.
The car is running normal and seems no issue at present.
If I let go that 1 screw, then What is the effect of a missing screw fitting clutch-kit to flywheel?
Please guide me.

As long as the rest of the 8 screws are torqued properly, it won't have any effect.
But the correct thing which should have been done was: Again take out/dismantle everything and instal it properly with no screws missing this time. Labour cost be damned. Just for the peace of mind.
