yes... I agree it would be terrible for someone that would be paying to have the labor done.

its not a big deal to me as a clutch on these cars takes like an hour...lol

down time does suck as Im carpooling with my wife... but im just glad I didn't have to pay for another clutch

Oh it is. No doubts there.
But the poor guy can't get away from the nagging wife now.
I mean, it's hell when you look forward to work just for the peace and quiet of it.
LOL
