comment Approximately how many hours of labour is involved in a clutch replacement
@mikes I don't agree or I wouldn't have asked. From my own limited experience I know the rear-wheel drive setup is easily answered to within an hour or two. The front-wheel drive may have a little more variance but I have less experience with them so I might be wrong. I have no experience with either of the all-wheel drive setups, so perhaps the variances here might be too large to give a useful answer but I doubt it. I'm not looking for a down to the minute answer here, just a very rough guide to show just how much (or little) labour is required to change a clutch.

@MattLove take a look at the question I just posted here. Hopefully someone will answer to give you a better idea of what's fair and what isn't.

@MattLove - changing a clutch is not a trivial job, it involves A LOT of work. Most of the cost of having a clutch replaced is in the labour not in the parts. Now if he's charging you $900+ just for parts then either he's replacing a lot of other stuff as well (which is a possibility) or he's ripping you off.

@kahbou - would it be worth mentioning over the counter radiator flush products in the answer?

@MattLove that kit looks like it contains all the parts you'll need to replace your clutch, assuming it is the correct kit for your make, model, engine and gearbox.

@NickC - I'd never seen the last 2 in a clutch kit either, till I went looking for a Subaru kit.

comment Alternative reverse light switch
Tim, you describe the way it works which is great, but what was the actual solution? What did you (or the gearbox place) do to rectify the problem?
