Should I replace the clutch while RMS being replaced?


Recommended Posts

My car is at the dealer being checked out for possible RMS leak. If the RMS is going to be replaced (under warranty), should I have the clutch replaced at the same time? The car is about 4 y.o.; 36K miles; 1 previous owner (leased); and I drive mostly in the suburbs. The clutch is functioning OK, so this would be purely prophylactic. Is the flywheel a wear and tear item that needs replacement at the same time? How much should this set me back if the RMS will be taken care of under warranty? TIA.

If your car is under warranty then the RMS should be replaced under warranty. The clutch would only be replace (under warranty) if it is oil soaked from the RMS leak. Normal wear would not warrant a new clutch under warranty.

A clutch replacement with the transmission already out for an RMS would not run you more than one additional hour of labor. Clutch parts will depend on what needs to be replaced - clutch disc, throw-out bearing, and flywheel if damaged. That could be a few hundred to $2000 (flywheels are expensive - $900 plus).

Hi Loren, you're up early. I understand that a worn clutch is not a warranty item. I guess what I am trying to ask is whether I should just pay out of pocket and replace the clutch now, even if there is nothing wrong with the clutch, or wait until I have clutch problems. Thanks.
