Im getting ready to sell my Si and figure i'll change the clutch before I do so for all the people that have put in a new clutch, how much did you pay for parts and labor?

Don't do that, it's not a sufficient selling feature to warrant the extra cost to yourself unless your current clutch is slipping.

Figure $1000 for parts and installation, and that's pretty reasonable.

i agree. you only replace a clutch when it is failing or has failed or you are looking to upgrade because you are pushing more hp.

I just recently replaced my clutch about 3k miles ago. My car was just in the shop for a checkup and than they noticed the clutch had very little life left. It was going to cost me $715 through Braman Honda near me. Luckily my dad is a hussler and knocked him down to $480 without paying for labor.

A normal clutch usually wears out from 25-30,000 miles so keep that in mind

If you don't do it at a dealership and you do it somewehre reasonable and just replace the clutch with an organic oem replacement, it should be right around 1000 dollars after labor and parts.

You are an idiot. Go learn yourself something. :)

A "normal" clutch should last 100k. A clutch on an economy car (like an EX) can last anywhere from 100k-200k in normal use.

Our SI's should last around 75-100k with normal use. I'm about to hit 60k on mine and it better last another 30k :)

:thumb: You should never expect a clutch to last 20-30k unless it is a dedicated track car.

$700.00 just to install it. But if you can find someone on the side, it's like $400-$500. To drop the tranny is really a pain in the butt, not like the older model.

6-700 for all parts and labor?

Hmmmm.

I guess OEM clutches are cheaper than i thought.

I got quoted 568 + 250 for OEM clutch so... 800.

I'm thinking 350-450 for an aftermarket clutch i guess..

well there you have it :D

What? It was an idiotic statement. If he thought about it, he would be implying that the average owner would need to drop $800-1200 every 2 years for a new clutch. That doesn't even pass the smell test.

You have 6 track days and daily stop and go and with 40k miles yours is....hurting? What does this mean? Is it slipping in 6th? Does it just not "feel" the same?

Track days does not = normal use, fyi :)

I drive very aggressively every single day and with 59k, my clutch feels just fine :)

Haha, a clutch last forever as long as you are not burning the clutch. I been driving manual since I got my lincense at the age of 16 and all I got to say is, normal wear is not 25-30,000 miles! I'd rather drive an automatic that would save me thousands for a clutch job! But then if you are slipping at high RPM, change it, if not Leave As-Is. Your car is sold AS-IS.
