There are many factors to pricing a Clutch, firstly you truly don’t know the extent of the damage until the gearbox has been taken out. At Freeway Service Centre if your car has a flywheel, we will always price you the clutch and flywheel.
Warning if you have a Flywheel: if you get a quote from companies that price the job and don’t include the flywheel price.
This can be misleading as the majority of the time you will require the flywheel to be replaced. They will quote you a clutch only price and once the gearbox is out, they will then price you the flywheel at an inflated price, and at this point, you won’t have a choice as the car is already taken apart and on a ramp.
For this reason, we always try and price everything as one, we don’t like surprises just as much as you don’t. We are upfront as possible, and if it doesn’t require the extra parts, then we will contact you to tell you that you will be saving money.
