I think the clutch is on it's way out on my 2002 156 GTA, it's not slipping but the biting point is very high. I'm not sure what the expected life of the clutch is, but the car has done 42,000 miles.

So, do I just do a straightforward replacement, or are there any alternatives e.g. Autodelta Group N. Also is there anything I should consider having done at the same time to reduce overall labour costs. The only thing I can think of that may come into this category is an LSD, but even then I'm not sure if there would be any overall saving.

Does anyone have any idea what kind of costs I'm looking at ?

Thanks

RG

well you would save on labour removing the box again to fit an LSD.

FWIW until it starts slipping Id leave it.

yes my bite is quite high. on my m3 the bite got lower as the clutch wore out. once replaced it came up higher again.

Leave it until you need to and maybe try the Q2 diff for a measly few quid extra at the same time! (relatively speaking)

You might also benefit from hearing more reports back on Q2/V6 diff performance by waiting.

TB I think I read on another thread that the diff can be swapped with the box in place.

might negate any savings on doing the two together.

Okay, I wasn't sure about the in-place aspect now that I think of it.
Everything was out in my case when it was done.
