v6 clutch

my clutch has started slipping erratically,sum days no slip,sum days slipping in second.I just been quoted £500 to replace clutch,which includes replacing front oil seal which may even be causing slip,not worn clutch.They say 6-7 hrs labour all in(alfa specialist),does this sound reasonable.

a very dirty car

Never had it done but it does sound about right - for a Alfa dealership that is.

Full Alfa Price for the clutch kit is about £200, you might save some money with pattern parts but beware of cheap and nasty parts which wear out faster. You may find that competition parts cost the same as Alfa - worth a look if someone else here will recommend a make for you.

That leaves 6 hours at £50 per hour. That is the same price as a Alfa dealership! Did you say specialist as in independent specialist or did you mean an Alfa dealer? Why not call for a quote from some reputable independant Alfa Garages.

That sounds about right.
Lyles in Newcastle quoted me around £450.00 , and they're usually very good to me!
They're specialists now, but wre once dealers.

The biggest element is labour, innit?

What mileage are you on?

I don't know if they can change the clutch without dropping the engine out but if it IS an engine out job then I'd say while they're at it, get them to change the cam-belts too.

If you're in sight of a cam-belt service (72,000) then you'll save that (hefty!) element of that service later on.
