    Default CX clutch replacement

    Can any one tell me what they think is a reasonable price to have a clutch replaced ( Melbourne )
    and
    Is this an engine out job
    and
    Can a home mechanic reasonably do this job themselves

    thanks
    Hawk

    Fairly simple... Full engine out. it's not going to be cheap to pay someone to do it (think of the time involved). Remember to source the camshaft seal, rear main, spigot and camshaft carrier bearings while your at it

    Does this help at all ??

    Thanks Shayne,
    That is fantastic information to have available.

    Now we all know why it is an expensive job. A clutch replacement may put many CX's off the road in future - as not worth the cost.

    regards

    Depends what you mean by "not worth the cost". Pollyanna here thinks "good opportunity to replace all those seals within most of the cost" and then the car's good for a long time more.

    The information on this site remains wonderful.

    Based on what I payed to have the auto box replaced, there is about 25 hours work involved to R&R motor, separate gearbox and fit clutch. Then you have to deal with other things that might need to be done while she is out. Like camshaft seal, driveshafts etc. I would say $2k would be a minimum, more if other things need doing.

    Sounds near the mark. I've paid similar for a Xantia heater radiator! Worth the money if you keep the car and keep using it.

    We once paid much more than our Renault R8 was worth for straightening her up, but 25 years later, still using the car, it wasn't much really.

    Default CX2200 Clutch - where to buy or can it be re-lined?

    It's come time to do the '76's clutch. Is there an Aussie supplier or is it possible to have the old one re-lined?

    I'm pretty sure they all use the same clutch. Head down to your local rebuilders and see what they say. They should be able to clamp test the pressure plate for you. A lot of CX parts are readily available on ebay UK these days.

    don't even dream of doing this job without changing the cam seal

    Others stuff to look at while it's apart.
    --lower engine mounts
    --driveshaft carrier bearing
    --rear main
    --spigot bearing

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head

    How about these at CX Basis

    1. Clutch kit for CX 2000
    CX-BASIS :: eShop

    2. Clutch disc 2200/2400

    CX-BASIS :: eShop

    Seems to confirm Double Chevrons thought that 2200 and 2400 clutches are the same.

    When I was a Kid and needed a new clutch for the Hillman, I would just take it into one of the places that re-lined drum brake shoes and they would re-line the plate, put in new springs and skim the faceplate - anyone know if these places still exist?

    Hi Warren,
    modern clutch parts are throw away. I think the re-builders have gone the way of the " cords oil control rings" engineers.
    I'd be very surprised if anything is reconditioned these days. When given the option people usually put in new parts.
    There are plenty of brake and clutch replacement suppliers these days. The European importers would have new parts.
    However it's usually much cheaper to source the parts from England.
    Cheers... George 1/8th.

    Yeah, probably went the way of the guys who could "stitch" cast iron, producing a repair that was heat and pressure proof - my grandfather new how to do it.
