    Clutch 3 piece kit. what to do.

    I'm going to have to have my slave cylinder and clutch done soon.

    garage has quoted me £246 for parts and 5 hrs labour.
    that's about £525 with a 12 month guarantee.

    If I buy my own parts. I can get a 'Sachs' cylinder £110
    and a 2 piece 'ACDelco' clutch £120.

    so I either save around £80 but no guarantee, or spend more for other parts and a guarantee.

    Car is costing me a fortune lately.

    i would go for the garage option providing they are fitting a decent clutch kit (LUK for my money). the guarantee will be handy for you should anything go wrong in the 12 month period. ACDelco clutches are not that good anyway

    I've gone through my papers and the previous owner had a new clutch and slave fitted just over 12 months ago.
    I was thinking it may not be the slave that is leaking, but the pipe that goes in the top of the box.
    how do I take it out to check. does it just pull out?

    it is located to the gearbox by a snaplock collar and the pipe and this collar are very delicate and sheer easily so prise it out carefully

    So I can pull it so far out without taking the top pipe off?
    I'm just wondering if it is leaking from that 'lock and seal' part and not at the slave cylinder itself.
