Question Clutch replacement price in my wife's 2002...

So apparently it's been a while since I've needed any major maintenance on this because we've been quoted anywhere from $1100 on the lowest to $1800 on the high end for a clutch replacement in wife's 2002 WRX.

Am I remembering things wrong or did clutch replacement become incredibly expensive?

I just paid $650 for a ACT HDSS and flywheel resurface on my STI. Granted, I was already having the syncros rebuilt in the transmission but those prices are absurd even if I was paying the labor for just clutch work.

Well, to be fair it's clutch, new flywheel, throw out, and I believe water pump. Like, the full thing, all associated parts.

But I was thinking $~800 or so for all that? That's why I'm so confused.

Also, I should add that my wife got the quotes while I was working this summer. So she could have gotten the "female" price...who knows. It's happened at Cascade here in Wenatchee before.

Around here 1200~1300 is about the going rate.
But if you have access to a lift, save a bunch and get to know the car a little better by doing it yourself.

I do have access to a lift. I just haven't done anything that major for quite a while, TBH. I wouldn't necessarily feel comfortable doing it myself for that reason.

Figure $500-700 in labor at a shop, plus the cost of the clutch kit. If you order it as the TSB part number for the clutch shudder fix you can cut the cost considerably. The kit comes with flywheel, pressure plate, clutch disc, but you'll want to add the throwout bearing as well.

Water pump, timing belt, and all the parts usually install for around $500 give or take, including cost of parts. Then you have a clutch kit, and labor for the clutch. Sounds about right.

Oh, nvm. I said water pump...that was done with the timing belt, not the clutch. Duh.

So no, no water pump. My bad. Just clutch and associated parts.

Just print out the steps from a repair manual, and have a buddy that's done it before assist, it's really not too bad.

Cosmo brings up a good point about the TSB. I had Carr Subaru do the repair on my 2002 WRX and they only charged me the price of the clutch (no labor).

INTRODUCTION
In the event you encounter a customer concern of cold clutch judder that goes away after the first few applications, replacement of some clutch parts will be necessary to repair the vehicle. Prior to replacing these parts, you should confirm the engine and transmission mounting is not broken, loose, or misaligned.

Don't worry about the verbiage in the TSB, I just recommend it because the parts in the kit are the exact same ones you would get if you ordered them separately, but the kit price is WAY cheaper.

No, that's great. I'll definitely be putting this to work. As luck would have it, she does have some shudder (judder???), we just have driven around it. But 13 years and 230,000 miles later is a perfect time to address that issue!!!
