Default Diesel clutch release bearing installed in a petrol car. Possible effects?

We got our Linea 1.4 clutch + release bearing replaced recently. I was looking at the bill and I noticed the Part # 59116565 is the diesel 1.3MJD clutch plate's release bearing.

How did they manage to install it? And what possible effects will this have?

Installing the wrong clutchplate release bearing can cause the clutch to wear out faster at best, and can cause a whole host of power transmission problems at worst - slow response to hard acceleration at start etc.
I suggest you ask the service center people whether the clutch release bearing is the same in both the models. If not, ask for a free replacement.

Edit: Since it has been almost a week since you posted the query, I'm interested to know any updates.

Thanks for replying
Yeah since then I had mailed Fiat's Customer Service, and they said the petrol and diesel use the same clutch release bearing. Got confirmation on a fiat forum too that they're interchangeably using the part on 1.4 FIRE and 1.3 MJDs (no idea about the 1.2 petrol or the T-jet).
