$3000 for clutch replacement

I'm getting clutch stutter.
Dealer wants $3000 to replace the clutch on my ST.
Besides the cost, I'm scared they will mess something up.
Should I go for it or look somewhere else?

I don't know what the right price would be but $3,000 is way too much. I can have a automatic transmission pulled from a car rebuilt and put back in $1,000 cheaper than that. I would say $1,500. A clutch kit for the ST is not that expensive let's say you also replace the throwout bearing, and slave cylinder still shouldn't exceed $500 in parts and that's pushing it.

I'd think 1000-1500 would be about normal. 3k is too much.

He went to the dealer so I'd assume oem because you usually don't have the dealer do aftermarket stuff.

Looks like the flywheel on these are $400+, so they're probably hitting you with $700+ in OEM parts. $3K stilll seems high. I'd at least get estimates from reputable trans shops.

I've never had to replace a flywheel in a clutch job ever. I have done a few. $3,000 is very high.

Dual mass flywheel shouldn't be machined

OP, how are your motor mounts? I thought I was having clutch issues b/c I'd feel a vibe when releasing it, but it was a slowly failing passenger mount.

Without seeing the flywheel, maybe the dealer is giving a high estimate in case they need to change it. Agree that it's still too high.
