Default Clutch slave cylinder labour

Hi,
New here. Great info.
Would anyone have an idea or experience please of how much labour time is involved in replacing the clutch on a 308, slave cylinder minimum and possibly the rest? Thanks

Depends on the version, but access isn't brilliant on any of them. Reckon on an hour +.

Thanks for the prompt reply. It's a 1.6Hdi. I was led to believe that the whole thing could cost me over 1k, euro that is! I presumed labour would be a
large part of that - the slave is inside rather than accessible outside?

It's atop the gearbox, but there's a battery and a fistful of electrics in the way. That said, 1000 (about 16 sterling these days) sounds like a pith take.

Nice one. I have 20 in my wallet, I'll offer him that! I only hope then that my problem is the hydraulics only . Presumably the big scary number is a worse case scenario if the plates etc have to be replaced also.
Thanks again.

Default Chopper, big attitude, ease off

Chopper, you're response to my earlier post was ill informed and inaccurate. The hydraulics on th e308 hdi are actually inside the casing and the labour for clutch replacement is aprox 9/10hrs.. Cost to me 1200 euro. Thanks for the false hope and just perhaps you don't know everything. For one who professes to know alot perhaps a little humility now and then. It's obvious, you DON'T know as much as you profess. others beware of self opinionated posters!

Arrived on holiday in France 4 days ago in my 308SW 1600 HDi, next morning the clutch pedal stayed done after 200yds, could pull it back but clutch permanently engaged.
Found this site and thought 'slave cylinder'; big bill. Took it to a little man garage, after a couple of hours he phoned to say he`d had to order the part 'cylindre emetteur'. When part arrived he phoned to tell me, later he phoned to say car was ready; when I went to collect he showed me the failed part and a diagram of where it was in the system; bill follows.

Labour for changing cylinder and purging system, 2 hrs, 60
Part 48 Fluid 5 Total with tax= 130.

My experience with my local Peugeot main dealer in the UK has been that they are rip off con merchants, sorry to say. At first service they changed front pads and drums, over 400; when I queried the necessity and cost I was told the drums were worn down below limit; couldn`t show me the drums as they`d been thrown (within 2 hours).
My Frenchman laughed when I told him and added he`d have charged about 140 complete. Does anyone know an honest UK Peugeot garage ?

If I can just add my comment: I'm not aware of any PSA vehicles that use concentric slave cylinders. (someone will no doubt put me right) So the abuse of Chopper is unwarranted. The slave cylinder on 1.6hdi versions are crammed in by the rad. Maybe Peuger50 has got a unique vehicle, or maybe the person he's speaking to doesn't know what he's talking about.

Before anybody corrects me, I have checked with the ecp website and it seems you can indeed get this vehicle fitted with a concentric cylinder. I've not personally seen one (and I do exclusively clutches-all makes) and they don't list one on the REPEXPERT website(site run by LUK as parts database). There you are, never too late to learn!
