Time for a new clutch - any suggestions ??


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've got a 2005 Blob Eye WRX.

It's standard, apart from Prodrive kit (fitted from new).

 

The clutch has started to slip slightly, so will need doing very soon. I had a quote of over £1000 from Jem Subaru so will obviously not be getting it done there. I'm located in East London / Kent.

 

I'm looking for either:

 

1.) A Subaru Specialist garage to provide and fit a clutch at a reasonable cost

 

or

 

2.) Suitable clutch kit to purchase myself AND a Subaru Specialist to fit it for me at a reasonable labour cost

 

 

All suggestions welcome - although I will definitely not be carrying out the work myself.

Plus any advice on other details surrounding getting a clutch changed.

 

Thanks!

Thanks Stants,

 

Exedy seems to be the only brand name that anyone recommends.

 

It's staying standard, I'm not intending to modify the car at all.

So the blue box should be fine.

 

Do you have a recommendation for the cheapest place to buy it - or any club discounts etc that might apply?

 

Eurocarparts shows £260 +vat

been recommended to try Aztec performance for the cheapest parts, standard clutch kit is around £250 or pink box organic comes in about £360

if you are anywhere near the high wycombe area talk to Richard at fb tuning, knows his stuff and is reasonably priced for fitment but you supply the parts. I had a little look around myself and for a fitted clutch you wont get much change from a monkey (£500 ;) )

 

as a side note, if you go for the stage 1 pink box the clutch slave cylinder will also need a slight modification to accomodate the uprated clutch

The only places I can recommend are a bit of a drive, Dan at Surrey Subaru Specalists in Camberly or Len at Subaru4you in Newbury, both would require a fair drive but worth the trip. Len has done a clutch for me and Dan has done a fair few bits on my classic when when I had it.

Thanks Kev. I've found that in London every quote goes over 500. But if I I'm willing to travel a bit, I should get at least a little change out of a monkey.

 

I'll ask FB Tuning for a quote. Cheers

Thanks Pete. Camberly isn't too far - I'll give Surrey Subaru a call for a quote too.

 

Best quote I have had so far is from Scooby Clinic, they were reasonably priced and got back to me right away. But they're up in Chesterfield and I don't know when I'm next up that way.
