How long should it take for a shop to change the clutch?

If you're a car begging for your life, wouldn't you want someone to add fluids?

Default Re: Clutch Change

yeah thats true, i got the auto out in 2 days (harder to get out than the manual), waited a few days for parts, then gave up trying to get the manual in place till i could get some help from peopel who had done it before (that was atleast 2 more days) and then got it done in 2 days where i spent more time at the jy geting miculanius bolts and stuff.

i would be alot faster now, u dont have to take out the exhaust like it says, if u go from under the car then theres no reason to remove the strut bar from the cradle just the control arms cuz its too much of a pita to put back on, i could probably chaing a clutch on my car in a day if i realy wanted to now.

knock on wood, i dont want to do anyting to my car for the next year after all i did lol

Experience is one thing. Having the engine hoist is another. Air tool the third.

I took out a turbo dodge transmission, removed the head to get intake manifold, pulled the shifter and shifter cables, and some other stuff in 4 hrs with only hand tools and electronic impact.

But then again, this IS the 5th tranmission and probably the 10th head I pulled. I can count to you how many bolts I have to take off in order to get to those parts.
