Question How Much For A New Clutch On A Rover 75

Does anyone know how much it will cost to have a new clutch fitted on a rover 75.

Some one said 500 is that about right and what does it involve.

What engine is it? The price will also depend on if the dual mass fly wheel needs changing at the same time too.

Clutch it's self should be this side of 100 quid.
Main cost will be the labour.
Then, as pointed out above, while the 'box is opened, could it be worth dropping in a DMF too...?

Is that something to do with cylinders or valves or something.
As you can see I don't know what I'm on about.
So it shouldn't cost me 500?

is it the 2ltr V6 ? if so on ebay there is a company called SMC (MG Rover dealers) and they sell an original MG Rover 3 piece clutch kit for £60 my local Ex rover dealer quoted me £250 just for the clutch kit so if it is the V6 model it is worth buying it and then getting a quote for fitting as it will be a hell of a lot cheaper

link to the V6

might be worth having a word on here too: http://forums.mg-rover.org/

If you need the Dual Mass Flywheel, (recommended) the parts alone will cost well over 400. Some quotes are as high as 800 plus. Not changing the DMF can be penny wise and pound foolish.
If you get a quote of 500, which included changing the DMF, bite his hand off.

I had a clutch replaced by Mr Clutch a couple of months ago, it's been 'juddering' on and off since then (but never when I take it back to Mr Clutch, until today, they reckon it's probably not the clutch but the dm flywheel and that when they take the box out if it's the clutch it'll be covered by the guarantee if it's the dmf I'll have to pay - I feel like I'm over a barrel, the car's not worth spending money on .... any thoughts anyone please.

Default Rover 75 clutch

I had my clutch replaced some years ago @ 124,000 miles and the slave was replaced at the same time (the slave is in side the bell housing so the labour to replace the slave would be the same as replacing the clutch, but no extra labour if it was done at the same time). Mine was never perfect, but couldn't be bothered taking it back. It's still exactly the same now and I'm on 217,000 miles.

There's always a debate about whether the dual mass flywheel should be replaced - perhaps you can look on google under Rover 75 forum :- a nicer bunch of anoraks you couldn't hope to meet.

Default rover 76 clutch

my name is tony machanic and garage owner,

clutch 98
Slave cylinder 125 recomend changing
DMF duel mass flywheel 290 (recomend changing as an expensive job if goes wrong soon after if you didnt change i would have you sign a waiver)
6 hours labour @ 30 per (hour my rate) 180

total 693

so if you were quoted 500 no DMF fitted or crap parts cheap imports
always go to a garage regestard with trading standards as they have been veted

defo the DMF should have changed when box was out they should have advised this but lets face it most of the people that work there are all monkeys
go to a proper garage with trained and qualified mechanics, use a garage that is registard with the trading standards
