I need to replace the clutch in my 2001 A4 Quattro 2.8. I called a supposedly reputable garage to give me a price, and they quoted me $1995 and claimed it take 12 - 15 hours of labor. Is that an accurate estimate?

Re: prices that varies from city to city based on labor rates and parts suppliers. Your other question - If you plan on driving and keeping your truck then yes - replace clutch, pressure plate & throw out bearing and have flywheel resurfaced (you don't need to replace flywheels unless they have deep cracks or has heat damage)
If you looking to change just the clutch it will cost you around $350 in parts and $500 in labor if you find right mechanic. There's also an option/recomended to change your flywheel as well which is also additional about $500. But this is the cheapest I know of. On my 1.8T previous owner ended up paying $2500 for clutch, flywheel and labor.
tandard practice to change the oil on a clutch replacement. Was the replacemmiles it's covered, but it's not sounds like the gearbox oil need changing. You don't say how many miles it has done. Gear box oil is not usually changed in a clutch replacement. Did an Audi garage carry out the rlacement? It could be the cable needs adjusting to allow the clutch to have free movement
Hi Candy, well these days garage prices per hour are between 60 and 90 pounds,and your car will at least take 3 to 5 hours work plus the clutch unit,
hope this help you to decide what your going to do.
from what you describe this is the clutch assy/driveplate in early stage of requiring renewal as a clutch assy! based on age of car and milage?? this is a not too difficult diy if you wish and you can save ££££ $$$ s in garage costs ? why not price up clutch assy from motor store/superstore ? who normally stock these other than dealers then enquire on cost for garage/dealer to provide and fit same ? you will be surprised on labour charge ? advise!obtain a haynes manual it will give proceedure with pictures to follow on how to do this job
dont take me up wrong but leave it to a mechanic incase anything goes wrong like gear box falls on you or anything mechanicly goes wrong u'll have no come back on it cause if a garage does somthing wrong or breaks somthing he has to replace it free of charge
