This £600+Vat is very reasonable. I suppose they are using good quality parts and changing all the bits including the concentric release bearing assembly? Before taking the car in best check this.

 

The car will certainly be better when its done. It will be smoother and the clutch will be lighter.

Yes I will check, thanks. I think the labour is not as high as the other quotes because he does alot of them and he and one of his mechanics can do them quite quickly together. Some garages don't seem keen on doing the job but it seems quite a common job for him. I've known him for 15 years and I can trust him.

Got another quote from Mr. Clutch for comparison.

 

Replacement clutch, concentric slave cylinder and dual mass £826.35 including VAT parts and labour.

 

What is a concentric slave cylinder, none of the others have mentioned it?

The concentric cylinder is the modern version of the hydraulic cylinder and release bearing. The cylinder used to live outside on the gearbox bell housing and work a pivoted lever that went to the release bearing  inside the gearbox housing. Nowadays its built into and inside the unit and is impossible to get to without the complete dismantling of the power unit/clutch assembly, which you will be having done to replace the DMF.  That's why it needs to be changed, even if there is nothing wrong with it.

Yes could be dual mass flywheel (DMF) does engine make a rattling noise when you turn the car off and do you get a pulsing feel through the clutch pedal if you push it half way down? Be looking around £1200 at a guess from main dealer for clutch, slave cylinder and DMF
