Cost of replacing clutch?

Hi, I am thinking of getting manual Focus zx3.

I heard that replacing clutch can be really expensive.(sry, I don't have experience with manual drive, so I don't have any idea about this)

How much would that cost for zx3 with zetec engine??

The zx3 I am interested in is 2002 model, and it has about 96000 miles on it.

Plus, how often you should replace the clutch??

Thanks.

How often you replace it really depends on how its been drove over the years. A good transmission shop, I wouldn't say no more than 1 day and about 3-500 dollars.

mmm id say 3-500 is the labor alone u still need to throw in the clutch, throwout bearing/slave cylinder, and resurface the flywheel so i throw it out to be around a 900-1k

a mechanics shop will quote you on labor, the ford dealer will charge you 8 hrs of labor. So figure out ur labor price and tack on about 250 bucks more for the clutch and other parts. Depending on ur driving style, you may never need to change the clutch. clutches can EASILY outlive the car. just depends.

It can't be $900...my eclipse was only $700 and you had to take the full tranny off to get at it.

I just had mine done and the total was $1300. Had to replace the master cylinder also. Labor is a little more expensive in Alaska.

^Thank you, someone with a reasonable answer....I was beginning to think it would have been better to stay with the eclipse.
