Re: Cluth Installation (JRL)

Re: Cluth Installation (GAS60RMAN)

It really depends on what all is included. <p>A minimum, (not recommended) job would be to replace only the disc. Pressure plate is surface checked on a surface plate or straight edge, little emery cloth on it and flywheel and job is done. Did many like this when $ were tight!<p>The most complete would be to replace clutch disc, pressure plate, throwout bearing and integrated slave cylinder, remove and resurface flywheel, replace pilot bearing, and change angle gear coupling while all is apart. <p>The labor is such a big piece of the job, that it does not make sense to cut corners and I would have it all done, but there are reasons for price variances. You need to find out what is included.

Now I'm actually thankful that I have a GT. I had no idea it was so much to replace a stupid clutch.<p>Clutch in my Jeep...$300. <br>Shoot, even a brand new short block for my dang Range Rover is cheaper than that.<p>big thumbs down

Re: Cluth Installation (GAS60RMAN)

I paid just over 1k just for parts. $900 for Spec2+ clutch & press. plate, $100 for new slave cyl. The job is a real pain. The whole front subframe needs to come off to get the trans out.<p>J. Clear<br>04 S60R

The steering rack gives you problems since it's attached to the trans. The engine also needs to be supported from above since you're removing everything that holds it in. Once it's all back together, you'll need a pressure bleeder for the slave cylinder. It's a job that I don't ever want to do again, but I'm afraid that since the first slave cylinder only lasted 66k miles I've got a feeling that I'll be rethinking that in a couple of years.<p>J.

Re: Cluth Installation (GAS60RMAN)

I mentioned the angle gear coupling because it is something you would not normally think about in a clutch job. The issue of it "stripping" is unique to Volvo. If you have not had it done, this would be a good time to do so. If it was done recently, I would not bother.<p>The hydraulic fluid does indeed get on the disc, pressure plate, and flywheel surface. At that point you have a slipping clutch, and there is no going back, the disc is destroyed. The root cause of the failure remains the slave however.
