Clutch + Flywheel Replacement for both needed??

Hey Fellas,

It is very sad but seems like I have a problem with my R50 1.4 D. Since I bought it in February I felt that the clutch was very stiff but nobody seemed to see it that way... However last Thursday while I was driving to Glastonbury I got stuck in traffic and suddenly changing gears became more and more difficult to a point where when I got out of the jam I couldn't change gears and had to stop. That moment I pulled the clutch back with my hand and seemed to be OK to drive but when I was revving it up on 4th and 5th gear the speedo would show it increasing and suddenly decreasing again. I managed to get back to London on Monday however I couldn't drive faster than say 74 MPH...
I've taken it to a local garage recommended by they guy at my garage (Is 30miles away so not keen on driving it so far again...) and they say both the clutch and probably the flywheel should be changed but the total cost goes up to 1100 I'd like to avoid Mr Clucth but do you know any other nearby garages that might do it cheaper? (Postcode: E2) And is it really necessary to change both things??

A million thanks for your help!!!

Joe

Is the clutch slipping? Sounds like it could be a hydraulic issue...is the slave or master clutch cylinder leaking?

What's the level in the brake fluid reservoir?

If it is the clutch, then both flywheel and clutch kit need changing.

Hi

I know it's a bit further away but Wiljax Motors in Raunds NN9 6JL did the clutch and flywheel on my Cooper S. I only ever use this garage as they don't rip people off and do a very good job. Will be worth a call for a quote for sure. 01933623518
