Really depends where the service is performed and what is performed with the engine out. Clutch/Flywheel assembly and throwout bearing are about $8k. Start throwing in "while you're in there" parts (hoses, exhaust, valve adjust, mounts, driveline bearings, filters, etc.) and the parts list can quickly hit $10k. Then there's labor.12-20k for clutch seems a bit off. You can spend less than 10k all day long. I have more miles than you and it runs fine. Unless you plan to put 10k miles in next few months, don’t sweat it
Anyone with the factory LaRa scanner or an aftermarket Texa scanner can do a "snap" and estimate remaining clutch.I think this car is well serviced and in good shape. It has about 11,000 miles on it. At some point I’ll need a new clutch (E-Gear). How will I know when it needs to be replaced? Does it start acting funny? Or will it just strand me someone when it breaks?
Cheap? No.Gaius, do you have a link on where to purchase these scanners? TIA!
