How much does a clutch replacement cost?
A fully functioning clutch is important for many reasons. Most importantly, it helps you keep control over your car, both during gear changes and when coming to a complete stop. This mean you should never put a clutch replacement off when you need one – but how much is this repair likely to cost?
The cost of a clutch replacement
Unfortunately, it’s not an easy or cheap repair. Your clutch replacement will cost around £400 with all parts and labour included and takes nearly an entire day to complete. That bill and timescale are certainly a tough pill to swallow, but you shouldn’t panic just yet.
Here at Quality Car Service, we never provide a definitive repair bill without a full diagnosis and assessment of your situation. It could be that your repair will cost a fraction of that amount – or isn’t even related to a clutch problem at all!
Warning signs that your car needs one
If you notice your clutch slipping, feeling spongey or that it has a higher biting point than you’re used to, it’s likely that your clutch system is reaching the end of its lifespan. This is when it loses its ability to operate the mechanism which separates the moving and static parts used to change gear. Likewise, grinding gears, difficulty changing gears or the ability to depress your clutch pedal under minimal pressure are all signs that you need a clutch replacement.
If you’ve noticed any of these problems, don’t put the repair off! The cost of a clutch replacement may be alarming, but your car will be much safer with a fully working clutch. Why? Well, your clutch system is one of the most important parts of a manual car.
Why a clutch replacement is worth the cost
You need total control of your car when you’re driving and that’s what your clutch provides. The pressure plate, driven plate, cover plate and release bearing all form the clutch plate which is bolted to the flywheel. When you depress the clutch pedal, it stops the transfer of power from the engine to the wheels while you select the correct gear. Most importantly, it also helps you slow to a complete stop and allows for controlled driving at low speeds.
If any part of this system breaks or is worn and ineffective, the results can be disastrous. Clearly, not being able to stop completely is very alarming so, here at Quality Car Service in Milton Keynes, we’re always ready to deliver a safety focused clutch replacement that costs you less.
