Any ideas? I might go for the Daikin kit, which is a steal for "$159.00".

But how much will the dealer charge for labor?

Let me know.

Thanks

Who makes the MZ6s OEM clutch? Exedys website says it makes OEM clutches for all 11 Japanese auto manufacturers........

$340 including resurfacing the flywheel?did that include the clutch kit?????The reason i ask is that i just had mine replaced and the book rate is just under 7 hours for r&r on the clutch.$340 sounds really cheap for that.Daiken makes the clutch for mazda with the V6.not sure for the 4cyl.

I just bought the ACT stage one kit for my car, 379.00, having a friend install it for 250. No new flywheel! just getting the old one resurfaced. I was quoted 575 from many other place's..really exspensive upgrade or repair for only having 30k on the car.

With what everyone is getting out of their stock clutch I have a feeling my clutch is just about due. Im at 38k and if I had to replace mine now and the dealer doesn't cover it then my plans for my car are gone.

What do you guys think. If I lose the clutch this deep in the mileage will they cover me?

Not likely...

And shop around on the replacement. You can probably find mom and pop shops that will do the work alot cheaper than the dealership.

You may want to do a search on the ACT stage one kit. I believe alot of people were having trouble with that clutch which is one of the reasons the RPMStore stopped carrying them. For that price from what I read, the Clutchmasters Stage 1 is being recommended.


Ooops...maybe I should have done a search before that last post....people were reporting issues with the SPEC stage 1 clutch not the ACT stage 1 clutch. Sorry for any confusion

I just dropped $1,200 on a new clutch (including used flywheel) for my beater '98 Altima. Worked out to be half labor and half parts :tear:
Just 22K and 18 months after Cottman replaced it, with their 90 day warranty:swearin:
Found a new shop with a 2 year 24K warranty.
Expensive lesson.

You in kansas?

1200 seems high for a clutch, but I have not priced it out.

Yep, Olathe. 1,200 is a bit higher than some othet places, put I'll pay a premium to a shop I can trust...
