Anyone know how much a clutch is for a 2.0TS?

Its jumped out of third a bit lately (Although it's now stopped doing it) if the 'box has got to come out anyway I may get the clutch changed as well.

I also convinced myself on my way to work this morning that it was slipping, although it was probably wheelspin. I've gone paranoid!

(I'm not risking going to a stealer, specialist price is better)

Thanks Chaps

Hi Richard. Couple of symptoms to see if you have slippage. Tootle along at a reasonable speed and if you press the accelerator in 4th or 5th and the revs go up without increasing speed, clutch is slipping.
Also, try taking off in 3rd from a standstill. Same symptoms.
I have never understood clutches, but shop4parts have "clutch kits" from Alfa/Valeo around the £100 mark. Not sure if you need anything else.
Jumping out of 3rd may be something else more serious. Let a specialist decide.

I was quoted around £700 from a 'specialist' (about which i have now heard mixed reports) when I was looking at getting this done last year...

I have now learnt to tollerate a degree of slippage...

The I was chatting with the new 'Alfa' mechanic of choice about clutches and he recommended sourcing the part myself before getting anybody to fit it... he was also saying something along the lines, of there is nothing wrong with reconditioned clutches and he has fitted loads, of which he is pretty sure were new stock...

Also stay away from the likes of Mr Clutch as eventhough they will be cheap they will just want to do the quikest job posiable and as we all know...no job on an alfa is quick!


not even the cleaning..

Thanks,


As you say, no point going to Mr Clutch, I think it was me, roads a bit damp...

I'll have to go to my friendly Alfa specialist for the jumping out of third. Which it's not done for a few days.

I'm trying to drive around the problem and my GF has had no problem. It could be something wearing in the linkage or selector mechanism?

Just thought I'd ask about the clutch to lessen the shock if that's had it too...

Is that an easy job?

I've no garage or tools, I'm ham-fisted and will possibly cause more damage than I cure

Well on other cars it seems to make the change smother...

you will need one of those fecking torx sets to get the plug out.

Jack and axle stands too...If you cand change your own engine oil, doubt you will have a problem.

I think Hutch has done his recently..

Flush the box out and change its oil first.

If that doesnt work and the linkage is well adjusted you need another gearbox.

flush and replace the gearbox oil. if it still does it its the syncromesh. no idea how much a rebuild would be on these but they are usually just as much as a replacement box so just keep driving it til it stops working or you can afford to get it changed.
