If you are dealing with problems with your auto's clutch, you will be in for expensive repairs. The average clutch replacement cost is around $1,200 to $1,400, which includes both parts and labor. While that figure alone is not as high as some other repairs, it is still enough to make you think twice. Additionally, it is common for your clutch repair to be just one of several repairs your mechanic completes at once, adding to the out-of-pocket expense.

 

What Is the Clutch and Why Does It Matter?

The clutch is easily among the most important components of your auto, and if you do not have a functional clutch, you will find your auto impossible to drive.

 

The clutch is responsible for connecting the transmission and the engine of your auto. The clutch must separate as well as connect since the engine runs at times that the wheels do not turn. Both manual and automatic transmissions have the same parts in their clutch, although automatics do have more clutches.

 

What Parts of the Clutch Factor into the Cost of Clutch Replacement?

There are three major internal components of the clutch. These are the throw-out bearing, the pressure plate, and the clutch disc. All three are necessary for the clutch to function properly, and most clutch replacements will involve replacing all three of the components.

 

In most cases, the clutch replacement will involve replacing the clutch disc, releasing the pilot bearing, and replacing or resurfacing the flywheel. It can also include replacing the clutch pressure plate and clutch bushing.

 

How Long Does a Clutch Usually Last?

If your car is getting older, then you need to know when to start looking at the replacement clutch cost. The clutch is designed to last for a long time, and it should last at least 50,000 miles, assuming you drive in normal conditions.

 

In the case of newer autos, you may have a clutch that can last 80,000 miles or even 100,000 miles.

 

On the other end of the spectrum, vehicles that deal with heavy strains, such as trucks that regularly haul loads, will need their clutch replaced sooner. In this case, you may need a replacement in just 35,000 miles.

 

Since every car is slightly different, you should check your owner's manual to see your recommended replacement interval.

 

Breaking Down How Much Clutch Replacement Costs

With such a wide range of potential prices for your clutch replacement cost, there are obviously multiple factors that affect what you will have to pay. The most important ones are:

  •  The make and model
  • Automatic versus manual transmission clutch replacement cost
  • Whether slave and master cylinders need to be replaced
  • Whether it is a hydraulic clutch
  • Whether you have a hybrid, which requires removing the trunk access panel
  • If you opt for used or new parts
  •  Your location
  • The mechanic you go to
  • The warranty that the clutch replacement comes with
  • Whether transmission service is also included
  • Other services included such as working on the torque converter clutch
