How much should i pay for a new clutch?

My clutch has finally given up after, months of slowly getting worse.
i need to know what sort of price i should expect to pay for someone to put in a new/replacement clutch.
I dont want to get ripped off

the car is a XE 4speed Manual

what i payed

I just got a brass button hi-torque made for my AU, but he makes clutches for all cars. It cost me $750 delivered to my door.
He also has heavy duty clutches for a little cheaper.
Sure beats $1000 for a original from ford which would only last half as long.
I got mine from direct clutch performance 07 38622680 or

Re: How much should i pay for a new clutch?

For what it's worth....

PBR clutch kit - $170- Bursons
Flywheel machined - $40 - take your pick
New Spiggot bearing (Ripped off)- $19 - Ford

Installation....Your guess is as good as mine, i hazard a guess at anywhere between $150 -$200 depending on the workshop. Alternative is you buy a clutch alignment tool, a Gregory's and a slab for your best mate and have a go yourself!

Hope it's of some help.

Talk to some of the smaller brake/clutch places, I get mine for $45 from a brake rebonder and never have any troubles with them.
Then if you don't DIY there's labour....
