Holy Crap

I just got quoted $496.13 for a clutch replacement on my car. That's just for the labor! Is this a fair price, or am I getting screwed? How much did all of you pay for clutch replacements? Help please!

that sounds like a rip confused

Does anyone have any actual prices that they paid to have their clutch replaced? I'm getting the parts for 147, but i don't want to get bent over for the labor, what is reasonable!??

No i think that sounds about right...
acura charges $400+ for clutch replacements.

Did you take it to a dealership or an independant shop?
dealerships rip ya...

Clutches arnt really that hard to change you could probably do it yourself and save the cash.

The 496.13 was an independant shop. The dealer wanted $800 fricking dollars just for labor, and they wouldn't install any clutches that I didn't buy from them, and they wanted to sell me an oem clutch for $450 or a TRD for $600

unless you know how to install it and can have access to a lift and air tools then dont DIY. 450 seems a bit steep. look around a but more.

450 is around the right price range.
i'm sure you could probably find a cheaper place, just make sure they do good work.

if thats only labor, the price is nothing special. my suggestion is to look around cz that guy didnt give you any deal. shops charge that, best way to go is to know a mechanic who works at a shop and does it for you off work. that way the money goes all in his pocket. someone done my clutch for 200$ but that was hooked up. if you have the right tools you can do it, but you gotta have a lot of tools like the engine holder cz you deattaching the tranny from engine. a lot of screwing and unscrewing works.

Yeah, great, remind me that I am exiled in wyoming, not living in socal! Seriously though, i've already checked with my mechanic friends, and they don't have time, nor do they feel comfortable working on my clutch since it's so new
