Just had the garage call about the clutch in my Passat. I t was slipping a bit the other week, and with the MoT coming up as well, I decided to get the clutch changed at the same time as getting it tested.
I've just had them on the phone and, with things taken apart, it looks like I need a new clutch slave cylinder and a new dual mass flywheel in addition to a new clutch plate that is, apparently, warped.
I was prepared for the cost of the clutch, when it was just the clutch. That was bad enough at 530 quid all up, but doubling it? I feel violated.
The worst part is that the cost is mainly in parts, with a new flywheel costing 350 quid (not including VAT). I'm shocked, stunned and staggered and now looking around to see what I can sell to soften the blow a bit.
Anyone want a Perception Sealion Fastnet for 300 quid?
