the garage will need to guarantee the work they carried out so if anything they fitted has failed they need to put that right.

 

Can you give more details of exactly how the clutch is slipping?

 

Im asking as I note you didn’t mention having the slave cylinder replaced as well as the cliutch.

£400 seems a little steep but anyway when it's back at the garage ask what parts and labour warranty is. No way it should be slipping I'd they've done everything correctly. If they havnt replaced the csc then they're incompetent as they should've advised you to have it replaced and with it being the cheapest part within the whole job of changing a clutch it's definitely worth doing

Agree, I would have replaced CSC whilst box out, as good engineering practice, but what has the CSC got to do with clutch slip
A failing CSC will make it difficult to select gears, not cause a clutch to slip

Hi thanks for your reply, regarding the clutch slipping  it all started a couple of months ago really with what seemed to be a very very slight slipping on steep hills but not unduly affecting the cars performance ( with not enough certainty that it was a clutch problem to warrant a visit to a garage) ,

The problem seemed to come and go for no specific reason until recently when it started to get worse so I took it to the garage where they took it for a test drive,they informed me there was no noise from from the DMF (that's what the mechanic said,) so it would only require a replacement clutch...no mention was made of the slave cylinder.

According to the bill they have fitted a 3 part clutch???

 

I have attached a copy of the bill minus garage details.

 

The car at the moment is back at the garage.

 

Strangely whilst returning the car to the garage it appeared to run fine but with a slight intermittant misfire ,which the garage seemed to make a big deal about??? (I can't see how this has anything to do with the clutch and I can replace the plugs and leads etc myself)

 

Once again thanks for your reply...hope you can help.

 

 

BTW  the car has a LPG conversion which I had fitted on the car from new, but is rarely used nowadays due to me being retired and doing very low mileage, hence the problem with the plugs/leads.

3 piece clutch is normally

Csc release bearing

Friction plate

Pressure plate

Theres no other reason why it would be slipping unless they contaminated it or didn't clean the oil off it first
