Default Cost of changing a clutch?

Hi, is there anything particularly hard in changing the clutch on a 307 2.0 hdi?

I have been quoted £430 and £480 from a couple of independent local garages to change the clutch. This includes six hours labor which I think is a bit excessive. I think I could do most front wheel drive cars clutches in six hours myself if I had the time.

I have checked the local motor factors and the clutch kit is about £100 including the vat so thatís either a hell of a lot of mark up on the parts or very expensive labor.

There is a local mobile clutch fitter who I would have gone to but he is on holiday and although the clutch has only just started slipping my fiancť doesnít like driving it if itís not 100% so I really canít wait till heís back and can fit me in.

Cheers guys

Which 2.0 engine? 90, 110 or 136?

I know the listed time for the clutch on the 136 is in the order of 8-9hrs labour... garage did have mine for more than a day when having it done.

I had my clutch done a couple of weeks ago i got the parts of ebay that was a genuine peugeot solid flywheel converstion clutch and bearing carryer for £290 and payed a garage to fit it which was a days job the cost of £150 for labour. i would be asking them if it was a converstion kit or just clutch because if its just clutch the price seems abit steep, me personally i would have a full solid flywheel converstion done because if you just have the clutch done a few months down the line your dual mass flywheel could be on its way out then its more expense too have one fitted.

Itís the 90bhp one, they never mentioned fitting the solid flywheel kit, I suspect they would have charged a lot more if it was.

I got a call back from a mobile mechanic £220. Thatís more like it.

The car has 148k miles on it and itís a 2004 so not really worth very much so doing the solid conversion would cost about 1/3 to 1/2 the value of the car.

The labour is spot on. Probably takes a bit more time actually.

Don't think there is a DMF on the 90 anyhow

You're right there isn't.

Last time I got quotes for mine they were all around £250 - £300.
