clutch replacement Price

Hi guys,

I think my clutch needs doing on my 2005 Mini one. It is making all kinds of cranking and clicking noises. I have been quoted 430 inc VAT parts and labour, Does that sound about right??? If anyone know how to do it do they want to earn 150?? haha.

Any help will be great,

Cheers guys

Just be careful with them. They replaced the clutch on my mini but while doing it they rang to say they had noticed something else needed replacing and it ended up costing me double what they originally quoted.
Not saying all garages are the same but I do feel they ripped us off and gave a cheap quote just to get the business.

If something sounds too good to be true it probably is!

Mines fine fortunately! The clutch has only had 6000 miles of gentle use May bear them in mind because that sounds like a good price to me

Hi

Just had my wifes cooper done at a BMW specialist in Salisbury that I have used for years. They charged 480inc. which was very good. Expensive job as the work involved is nuts.

BMW will want 1000 plus. My local dealer is cheap compared to most as well!

I know here in Aus I charge $800 to fit and a OME clutch for $400 (Delaers charge $1850!!!), Doing it is not to bad but as has been said you have to get fairly deep into the heart of your mini. Next one I do I will have to do a walk through with pics.

I was just quoted 1400 to replace the flywheel (250) on a MCS by BMW - same amount of work to change a clutch apparently.
