Golf TDI Clutch replacement.

6 posts in this topic

Could you give me a ball-park-figure fo replacement clutch on a 1996 Golf TDi? Need to have the complete clutch assembly replaced.

Both VW dealer price and alternative dealer. Can you recommend anyone in Cardiff. Thank you.

I had mine done with the cam belt, so not entirely sure - I think it was about £2-250 for the parts, then another £150-ish for the work I think. So £400-ish from an independent VW specialist. I didn't even bother getting a quote from a dealer!

Thanks Benjie. Phoned around today,

VW Dealer 1. Parts £220 inc Vat, Labour £350 inc Vat. Total £570.

VW Dealer 2. £260 labour plus parts plus Vat. Although she rang back an hour later she had no idea how much the parts would cost.

VW Dealer 3. £495 inc Vat. Charged £78 per hour plus Vat.

None of the above were really interested and disliked questions!

Independant VW Dealer. Extremely polite, said that they only used LUK OEM parts and would replace Clutch pressure plate, friction plate, release bearing, sleeve and new bolts as required. Total inc Vat £335.

The Clutch parts kit from VW to do the job yourself is £109.73 inc Vat, plus approx £15 for the sleeve and bolts and there is a £15 surcharge on the return of the old clutch. The above price could attract a discount of 20% if you know a dealer well. If not buy from a parts supplier for approx £80.

Funny you should mention that. My car's a remapped TDI 90 too! The flywheel was on its last legs at 155k and clutch wasn't far behind and my specialist said he'd done 2 other TDI 90 clutches that week - one at 150k and one at 146k! I'm spotting a pattern here!

Great! Where do they get these numpties from? Why ring back if she has no idea of the cost? That is what the parts dept are for. smashfreakB.gif
