Hi all, have a 2008 207 1.4 vti. Clutch has started to vibrate whenever it is pressed. Does this mean it's only a matter of time before it goes? Or could it be something else. Any checks I can do? Cheers

Cheers thought as much. Its making a really bad sound now aswell. When I put the reg into euro car parts i can get a valeo clutch kit for £110. But it also throws up a clutch release fork at £50. Will I need the fork aswell? Thanks

You will possibly need the fork but you WILL need the bearing sleeve as the bearing cuts into it when it fails and if you dont replace it the new bearing can stick fork is generally ok unless clutch fails completely hence why rustyroger said stop driving it

Thanks Reliable, don't suppose you can point me in the right direction as to where to find the bearing sleeve? Had a quick search but can't find one.

Out of interest don't suppose anyone has done a clutch on this model before (1.4 VTI engine code EP3)? Reason being most garages are quoting 6 to 6.5 hours labour time. However 'Clickmechanic' are at 3.2 hours! price from £600 down to £335 with Valeo clutch kit.

Someone who knows the cars could probably do it in 3 hours with proper tools and a ramp.
6 hours is a realistic time for a non clutch specialist type garage allows for some headscratching time :)

It's $hit of a job to do as a DIY. I did the daughters and it took best of a day to get it out with axle stands and trolley jack on the drive. There is very little room to maneuver the box out and starter motor is hard work to get at.

I had to change input shaft bearing in the box as well so took me a whole weekend to complete

Hmm. Wasn't planning on diy, someone recommended to me is supposed to be doing it on Saturday for £130 (labour) and if he lets me down will go with clickmechanic at £335 all in. From what you've said and other quotes I've had £550-600 both seem really cheap.

If the recommended guy is doing it without a garage with no rent to pay and nothing else to do etc then he might still be making money at that price ask him if he has done 1 before !

I removed the complete engine and gearbox from a 207 on tuesday myself in 2 hours but i have done loads of peugeots and know what needs removed and what can stay :)

Thats some going. Yes he is a mechanic who apparently is a workaholic so is doing it in his free time at his own yard. Like I say he quoted £130 but will definitely throw a bit more his way providing all goes well. The clickmechnic quote at £335 is tempting though with 12 months warranty.
