Okay, i need a new clutch because my bite has been getting higher and now the clutch has started "sticking" so its time for a new one.

Only had 1 price so far and that was 145 fitted. Anyone suggest a reputable place where they do good work and their prices are fair. Dont mind paying more if the work is actually going to be top notch....although replacing a clutch is simple for any garage i'm a bit picky about who i let mess with my car! lol.

I am in Ellesmere Port but don't mind travelling for a decent price!

kind regards,
Daniel

I have worked for 4 Main Dealerships to date, one of them being a service manager for a short time and i walked out of all four places.

You really dont want to know what goes on behind closed doors at a main dealership.....

People presume that because its a main dealership the job will be to the highest standards, NOT.... These places are generally worse than most independant garages.

I cannot comment on the dealership mentioned here, just saying to be carefull.

Also avoid Clutch & Gearbox centres, been there and done that also, allot of them only replace one part of the clutch and often with a secondhand part at that because you are not going to remove the gearbox to check are you ??

Hope this helps you a little and choose carefully.

ah right, thats cool. Do you have any idea on a rough price for a new clutch for a 1998 Escort 1.8? All in? And also how long you would need the car for?

my dad is stressing me out tellin me to just go wherever does it cheapest, i tried explaining that backstreet garages and clutch centres will do a shoddy job but he doesn't believe me. How naive.....

Does anyone know any decent garages in ellesmere port that can be trusted, because i am yet to find one to be honest.....

I am going to ring autosafe this morning aswell but i am trying to find somewhere to do it today ideally, not much luck of that though frown
