    New clutch time??

    Seems as though my clutch may have started slipping, maybe it was just a one off but I'd rather get it done before it fails.
    Does anyone have any recommendations to a good supplier, make??
    Also can anyone recommend a good garage in the East Midlands.
    Id rather do it myself but don't really have the time, is it a big job in reality??

    When you say "hell yeah", have you actually done one? A big job to one person isn't big to another.

    I wasn't intending on going cheap, which is why I was asking for recommendations.

Found this on YT...please, be my guest and good luck!....it looks easier than that GM engine I had anyway! Audi A4 Clutch Replacement guide. - YouTube The hell yeaghh was in reference to the cost of the clutch parts....and in my experience buying a cheap clutch / flywheel combo is just a false economy.

    There's some good priced luk flywheels on eBay £360ish and TPS aren't to bad for the clutch kit. Think I worked out it would be about £600 plus labour for luk clutch and flywheel on mine which I assume would be along the same as you're being a big lump too. TPS wanted more than £700 for just the flywheel.

    Luk, valeo or sachs and about 3-3·5hours on a 2 post ramp so add another 45mins doing it on your back if you know what you are doing and would be easier if you had someone helping you
