Default need help fast is dealer screwing me??

i brought my car into service to change the throw out bearing. i just got a call from the service manager and said that my clutch and flywheel is worn pretty bad and said that since it looks like abuse they will not change the flywheel and clutch under warranty. no labor cost cause the tranny is out already. they said around $750 for the clutch and flywheel. i told him i will call by 2 pm est. and tell him what i want to do, either get new parts or put the old ones back in. the car i a 06 wrx with 9 thousand miles. is he right? what should i do?

it is VERY obvious when a clutch as been "abused" vs normal wear
I can toast a clutch in a day if I try.....

You can find a clutch kit for less than $750 and supply them with your own clutch to save a bit on the cost....

Ask if you can see the clutch and the flywheel. if the flywheel has dark or black spots on it and the material on the clutch is almost worn or low, then they will not cover it because they can not bill subaru for it. either they are trying to milk you or you need to learn to drive the car better GL

A fried clutch on an 06 WRX with 9000 miles ? I don't see how that could be anything but abuse ! And the tranny too ?

Sounds like you need to trade it in on an automatic !

here exedy is the OEM clutch. Here is their trouble shooting guide.

http://www.exedyusa.com/multimedia/s...rblshtng06.pdf

There are several things that can trash a clutch in a very short time. Other then assembly error, there is driver error. Go in and look at it and decide for your self, see what you think after looking at the guide.


here is a clutch kit
http://www.clutchcityonline.com/products/FJK1001.shtml

just have the flywheel resurfaced, ~$100-$200 on the high side, depending on the shop.

Listen smart guy, you're making a lot of assumptions. Maybe he just started learning stick, I could see that happening with a powerful car.

And the tranny was out so they could service the throwout bearing, he didn't kill the tranny itself. Read more thoroughly next time.

They're overcharging you for the clutch, I'd get it from www.subarugenuineparts.com

Same thing happened when my 03's trans let go. Everything was fine before then boom, no more second gear. After (reluctantly) saying it would be replaced under warranty, they said my clutch was broken and I had to pay for it. I said it wasn't broken before the transmission went, so it shouldn't be broken now, unless the transmission did it or you did it. Turns out the tech broke something when removing it. They replaced it free of charge and supplied the rental car. Carr Subaru FT(eventual)W
