Cost of Clutch Replacement

I'm tryin to get a quote for a clutch replacement, and most places are telling me about 600-700 in labor. When I looked on here people were saying it should be more around 300-400 in labor. I live in Seattle, just wondering if anyone knows a place where I can get it done for a good price ?

Is the stage 1 organic exedy a good choice?

if you take it to acura it is about 600-700 in just labor they should finish on the same day so I would say drop it off at 7 or 8 when ever they open, I use the Oem replacement by exedy works perfectly fine. P.S. if acura fucks up you have lifetime warranty on your clutch job they do other cheap place usually won't learn that the hard way....

Your first labor price is fair for a professional shop, the second is fair for a shade tree mechanic's install. Both have their pluses and minuses.

As far as the actual clutch, that Exedy unit is fine if your car is basically stock.

I second Eric's post and it's a big job for a guy with a jack and jack stands which woould likely put you in the $300-$400 range. Might not be the best idea to skimp on this job. You want it done right and a lift is going to make that much easier. It's less about installing the parts and more about all of the little details of everything that has to come off and go back on correctly.

the obvious answer: whenever needed.

mine was done at 114k but it wasn't completely gone, just started showing signs of wear. i guess it all depends on how well you drive standard and what kind of abuse you put it through.

I paid 130 for my clutch which is a exedy oem replacement came with pressure plate and bearing and tool, took it to my shop they charged me 200 for labor and 20 to resurface my flywheel. My clutch was replaced at 130k now I'm at 151k no problems. 350 in total not bad compared to the other guy who wanted 800 just for labor told him to somb lol

I got quoted 350 plus tax at a very reputable shop in my area but i didnt have the money and i was so tired of the way my old clutch felt and slipped so i just did it myself. It went alot smoother than i expected.

Do you guys know if I were to get the Exedy Organic Clutch for $284 (EXE-08806) , would I need to replace the flywheel as well or just keep stock?

stock should be fine. most will tell you that a lighter flywheel will help, but it depends on what you use your car for. a lighter flywheel will kill your fuel econemy if you do mostly highway driving. if you do a lot of city driving or accelerating, i wouldnt worry about the econemy aspect, it might actualy improve your econemy.

Exedy Organic Clutch or Compettion Organin Clutch? Competition is a little cheaper, but if exedy is better I won't mind spending the extra 30 bucks? Any suggestions?

Just a few basic bolt ons, but I use it as a daily driver and just want something a little stiffer. In terms of quality is one better than the other? Or would I be fine with just paying a little less for the Competition organic clutch?

Im now considering replacing my clutch because under hard accelaration it seems as if the clutch starts to slip. Idk which im going to get though. Do ya know if the K20A3 clutch would work on my Type-S? theres a local selling a new exedy oem one for 125!

Now I have planned a trip out of town and will be driving about 700+ miles. Would ya say its ok to go for it if it seems as if my clutch is going out? I would just be driving normal no hard accelerating or high revving.
