    Default Cost of new clutch and flywheel...308, hdi, 1.6

    hi. Clutch collapsed the other day and the garage has said I need whole new clutch and flywheel. Cost $4100 and 10 hours work. Is that reasonable or a bit excessive? Thanks for any advice

    Contact European Auto Imports they have replacement solid flywheels (not dual mass) and clutches for around $1000 I think.

    Many thanks Graham. Need to factor labour on top of this...total about $2500?

    If you have a 6 speed manual box, factor in a concentric clutch slave cylinder also.

    There quickly comes the time when the modern car becomes a write-off.
    They are fully recycleable for the very same reason.

    Our 307 2.0 Hdi with the normal flywheel, not DMF, was about $1500 including chutch kit and gearbox seals fitted by a french DS auto specialist. I think the standard kit was same as most cars about $350. It was probably about 10 hours labour. As I was not sure if our's had the DFM, I checked the DMF kits which were for about $1200 about the same time (normally twice that) from a Melb importer. Sounds like a top dollar job?

    Had my clutch done on my 307 2.0HDi for about $2200, and that was a dual mass flywheel. See my post here: 207 HDi clutch flywheel replacement
    There is a post after mine that says that the 1.6L is more expensive than the 2.0L.

    Thanks everyone for your help. Have checked around several Peugeot dealers and the $4000 is consistent. The 1.6L apparently is a lot more expensive. Here's hoping it lasts for awhile....the car has 164K on the clock.....I presume clutch/flywheel normally lasts that long? Hopefully we will get a similar distance for this new one! Anyway thanks again for your help....appreciate it. Bil

    So did EAI have the solid flywheel and clutch for the 1.6?

    Why would anyone use a dealer, except with a warranty?

    Yes, I don't know why. I've had big issues with the dealer here in Adelaide with the work they did on my 307.

    Bil, where in Australia are you? We can point you towards a reputable Pug mechanic instead of using the dealers. At least you'll get the clutch fixed for a bit cheaper.

    Dealers can and tend to subcontract tricky bigger jobs out to specialist repairer and add their profit on top. It get cars with difficult issues off there service shop floor (Brand reliability image protection?). I like to use a French PSA specialist with access to direct imported after market parts. It is usually about 1/2 the cost of inexperienced service centers who can introduce more issues or dealers.

    When I had need to change the dmf and clutch kit for a 307 1.6 hdi, the parts in Oz were going to cost $1200, but I got them landed from England for $700.
    Try ebay in the UK.

    Thanks everyone. I appreciate the advice. I am totally incompetent when it comes to cars and so always take to garage. The problem is that we live in northern NSW and the car has been towed to Peugeot mechanics at Orange (600 km away). So we do not have much choice. I had two other quotes from Peugeot mechanics and they also hovered around the $4000 mark. The flywheel itself is just over $2000 and all agree that it will be about 10 hours work. But I want to thank everyone for their comments and advice....we appreciate it. Bil

    Wonder why the 1.6 is so much more expensive than the 2.0 ?

    You really do sound stuck there though - any other choices would involve complicated transport anyway...

    Were there any symptoms prior to the failure or was it just instantly catastrophic ?

    Cheers

    Ive just had the clutch go in my 308 HDI 2006 Wagon. Have been quoted $3000 to replace clutch with flywheel.

    The 308 has only done 88,000km and its only worth about $6500 so we're still deciding to go ahead or scrap the car.
