    Icon9 Mi16 Series two clutch dies

    Hi All,

    I have discovered this group in a search for cost-effective (but good)mechanic to replace the fried clutch in my mi16.

    Does anyone know a good guy/place in Melbourne?

    I had a quote for $1300 from a (generic) place in Richmond,
    and about $1100 from a Peugeot/Renault place near by.

    Is this what it should be costing me?
    Can anyone do better?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Cheers,

    Craig

    Default clutch

    I'm curious: why did it burn out? Did you ever adjust the clutch? Most 405s with blown clutches I've read about had owners who did not know that the clutch cable needs to be adjusted regularly. Or was it oiled?

    If the clutch is slipping it can't be the cable.
