2006 civic si new clutch

well i just bought the car around 2 weeks ago from texas direct auto and the clutch is already slipping. so i figured i'd buy the clutch and get the honda dealership to install it. turns out they want 700$ for labor. so i gave the used car dealership a call and they said they'd help with costs. i was wondering if it'd be cheaper to buy my own clutch online or to have honda buy one for me?

Buy online, stealerships tend to charge alot for pieces.

I also changed the clutch on my 06 si, but i decided to buy aftermarket clutch(exedy stage 1). They are more durable and perform better. Don't get it installed at the stealership, get it installed where you know the person or is a friend of a friend so you wont get raped on labor !

Best of luck !

I had the same problem with my 06. I bought it and noticed slipping.

Car had only 27000miles.

Honda replaced it when they did my 3rd gear luckily, but the clutch itself was $670.

go elsewhere to get the clutch done, and go aftermarket..

How do you know when your clutch is slipping?

doesn't specify what car its for so my guess, no. check out corsport or options auto. they have great deals on clutches. i got my stage 1 exedy and flywheel for well under $500 with my shops discount with options. install on this car is a huge PITA. have to pull just about everything short of the motor.

how are you guys wearing out the clutch so quickly?

I've got 65,000 miles and my clutch is still perfectly fine.

I'm still on my stock clutch that came in the car.. I do hard launches and all that tracking for 3 yrs and still feels great. Reason clutch will go out is only riding it on first gear. Buy stage 1 clutch Exedy, costs less than OEM and will outlast it.

A brand new clutch, pressure plate, and release bearing from college hills honda is less than $300.

The OEM clutch is actually a pretty decent piece of kit for long-life and smooth engagement. 71k miles on mine now. I have absolutely no idea how long it'll last though, since it's a self-adjusting piece of ****

i dont understand how people are wearing out their clutches so early. i have 35k miles on my 07 Si and clutch is still strong. i'll even do random check ups here and there to be sure.
