clutch change - estimated cost

Postby PaddyDT » Mon Jan 30, 2012 1:59 pm

Deffo on the way out.

My search says LUK offers a good replacement.

What would be a fair price for an indie to fit?

Cheers

I was quoted £200 last year (with me supplying clutch), I've heard places charging less than that though.

LUK clutches are good. Most people get theirs from http://www.charlesworthmotorsglossop.co.uk/. [Modedit]New site under development at http://www.charlesworthmotors.co.uk Ste[/Modedit] Give them a bell and get a quote including delivery.

As for installation cost for an indie, I would have to look through my paperwork later.

The LUK is no doubt a very light and smooth clutch with good bite. I think everyone who has had one is chuffed with it.

Some news that you might need to know about though..... LUK have encountered supply chain difficulties and seem to be having production run slowdowns on slower-moving kits. :( The last readily available '2 kit in the land was fitted to Allycat's car at the weekend and was sorely needed as she'd lost drive in pretty much every gear.

It seems we may have to wait for another manufacturing run but there will no doubt be some out there somewhere. Charlesworth are monitoring the situation and will keep us posted. Ring John or Steve on 01457864416 if you want them to hunt one down for you.

As for fitting cost, an Independent garage could charge 3 hours labour if you're lucky. If I recall correctly the book time with Toyota is 4 hours. Given the potential problems with our older cars its best to get a fixed price from them rather than rely on a rate. Don't forget to factor in the cost of new transmission fluid as well as the clutch itself.

I paid £90 for the labour, and about just over £100 for a clutch. Mechanic said it was just as good, if not better than the original, and I agree. Feels sharper and more balanced, but that might just be because it's new.

£90 labour is seriously cheap.

I usually pay £160 cash for labour and I get the clutch kit, blueprint just as good as oem, for around £90 trade from my local motor factors.

Meant to say I have an understanding with my mechanic, doesn't matter what car it is clutch replace labour is always £160, sometimes he wins, sometimes I take in a Peugeot :lol:

This brings back memories of 1990 when my clutch went on my Isuzu Trooper, main dealer quoted £900 so in shock went back to work and tried to adjust it so I could get a few more miles out of it, then a taxi driver pulled up and said whats up boy so I told him and he said run it down to our yard and they will do it for you.
Cut a long story short, they charged me £50 including the clutch and it was perfect until I sold it some 10 years later. Result.

There are two basic reasons for clutch slip as I found to my cost, the most common is friction plate knackered and chances are its gone on flywheel side which will likely leave serious grooves in the face, if your lucky its the pressure plate. My pain was gearbox seal went flooding clutch with oil - remedy sort out box and install a new clutch overall potentially expensive - def not a Mr T job unless your like me caught out on hop and now where to go at short notice and due away on my hols in a few days.
