So looks like my clutch has gone, well the slave cly, how much am I looking at??
I bought a clutch for £90 from GSF... fitting is the major chunk of cost... 4 or 5 hours at least I think...
If you need a new dual mass flywheel then thats another £250 ish on top
yep i got quoted the best part of £1000 to replace clutch and flywheel as audi say its a 8 hours job. Ring around local audi specialists and get some quotesiv heard of people getting it done for £600 on s3
Oh well that sucks! At least you can fit yours, I wouldn't have a clue. Its in with my local garage at the moment, just waiting for a quote, what would be a good alternative place to have it done, swindon or south of.
Whats the mileage on your motor lando?
it's done 110,000 now ... apart from this it is in really good condition.
its a good 8 hrs work to access the slave cylinder alone, and while you ar there you just as well change the flywheel and clutch
Ooh first post - My slave cylinder went and it was about £250 to get fixed by Audi. I was only on about 80k at the time and was miles from home. Had to get the AA to relay me home!
Wait, so if its just the slave and I can get that done for £250 do i have to spend 8 hours putting a new clutch in? Did Audi just replace the slave??
What engine/car do you have?
The S3/A3 TQS (quattro)needs to have the box removed to fit the slave cylinder
The clutch and flywheel take no more that an addiional half hour-hour tops when the box is off to do the slave. If you can get it done for £250, that's quite cheap, but get the clutch checked at the same time to save labour changes
At the time I had a 2000 X reg Audi S3 (APY). I have since sold the car so I cannot check the details, but from what I remember they said the seals had gone in the slave cyl. No hydraulic pressure means clutch didn't engage. At the time my Audi garage charged about £90 per hr.
This is what I thought, surely if they have to have the box off anyway to get to the slave cylinder it will cost more than £250?
You can get complete clutch kit for 150 at euro car parts, LUK brand, this is what audi would fit for you.
all the best.
