woah i paid 70 to get one put in my rs turbo lol isit possible to do it with the engine in the car?? i dont have an engine crain if i did id give it ago.

the last time i did a clutch was about 4 years ago at collage with the help of the tutor cant rember it much.

isit just a case of unbolting the box and clutch and rebolt back of or do you need to use some kind of alighment tool?

You have to remove the engine I'm afraid. I left the box in, theres a guide in the DIY section on removing just the engine.

K-tec fitted a group n clutch for me a while ago, 404 inc a l/b flywheel and labour (4.1 hrs), a bit tricky in 1st off the line compared to a standard clutch but you get used to it (biting point).
If you use them make sure you inspect your car in the areas that they are going to work in (ie. under the bonnet and under the engine/ gearbox) before you give it to them, and after.
 I had a lot of defects with my car after they worked on it, being an old car they can deny lots of mistakes saying somebody else must have done it etc, i have had my 5 for 18 years and only me and the mot station work on it but they still try to deny stuff.

john usally takes both out then does it on a bench and bulid them back up together as some times trying to get the clutch lined up with the spines on the box is a night mare. last clutch he did he charged just short of 500 and that was him supplying everything but he wasnt told that some numpty had allready tried doing the cluch and rounded very allen key bolt so that was also why it was that little bit more

To be honest, if your handy with the spanners. and you have a bit of time. you would be cheaper buying a crane and cracking on with it yourself. I would estimate roughly 5 hours to undo everything, lift the engine/box, split, refit, drop it back in, and connect everythin back up again. :wink:
