    Clutch on way out??

    Iv suspected it for a while,but just took my car out after a week of being away,and iv noticed that it appears to be slipping abit. Its also being abit difficult getting into gear some times,but not all the time. Is it the clutch going?
    If so,what am i looking at price wise for replacing it.

    if the clutch is slipping its a sign of it going mate, ive recently had a clutch fitted in mine as it had been slipping for a gud few months, when i got the clutch out it looked like a brake disc lol, i bought a LUK clutch which should have cost 150 notes, obviously i didnt pay that much. I fitted it with the help of a few mates, not sure how much it would be at a garage but its a biggish job would cost more in labour chargers,

    hope this helps

    I had my clutch changed on my mk 4 lastweek, it cost £470, including labour.

    Spoke to a few garages and they all quoted between £450 and £500.

    go for luk clutches, they are good and cost around £180 for complete kit with release bearing. most garages charge around 3 to 4 hours labour, so depends on your local garage rates
