Question about Honda City
Of late i have been experiencing reduced speed and pulling power drop. My mechanic tells me that the clutch plates are worn out and needs replacement. He also checked the clutch cable and has ruled out possible adjustments also. Now I have to replace the clutch plates. Can anyone tell what will be the cost including labor, materials and how long would it take. Thanks in advance :) Joe

Just an estimate...
clutch kit with disc, throw out bearing, pressure plate and pilot bushing, hoping that the flywheel is still good, is around $200.00
Labor could be another $400.00 to $500.00 at a high end.

from what is was told locally is that it would be around $800 - $1000 and can take just around a full day to do. it is not a quick job, so labor costs can be high and the price of parts play a big factor in it just because it is a vw.

SOURCE: Clutch replacement cost
8-10 hrs is more accurate, call around to other repair shops and ask what the flat rate time is for a clutch change on your make and model, most clutch jobs run around $600-800.

Have them flush the fluid out under warranty and put in new fluid, and have them bleed the clutch lines in case air is getting in there. Audi and VW claim lifetime transmission fluid but it's BS - I've changed relatively low mile fluid from these cars and it was horrendous. It's possible that the fluid itself is causing trouble, but it's more likely that it is a synchro problem. If it was a clutch issue, you should have problems with more than just reverse gear - a clutch simply engages and disengages the engine and transmission, regardless of which gear it is. The problem (if not fixed by fluid) is in the transmission, and being under warranty, don't accept another "suggestion" like they're giving you. Changing your clutch isn't gonna do it.

this is how to adjust the clutch correctly
NOTE: From mid-94 an automatically adjusted cable was progressively introduced. this has no nut type adjusters at the clutch end
SPECIFICATIONS: 1988 TO 1996
Models up to 1992 .... 145mm
Models from 1993 on .. 162mm +/- 12.0mm
The clutch adjustment is checked by measuring the clutch pedal travel.
1. If a new cable has been fitted, settle it in position by depressing the clutch pedal at least 20 times.
2. Ensure that there are no obstructions beneath the clutch pedal.
Depress the clutch pedal fully to the floor, and measure the distance from the center of the clutch pedal pad to the floor.
Now release the pedal and again measure the distance from the pedal to the floor.
3. Subtract the first measurement from the second to obtain the clutch pedal travel.
If this is not within the range given in the specifications, adjust the cable as follows.
4. The clutch cable is adjusted by means of the adjuster nut on the transmission end of the inner cable.
On some models, access to the locknut is limited and, if required, the air cleaner duct or housing component can be removed or disconnected to improve access.
5. Working in the engine compartment, slacken the locknut on the end of the clutch cable.
Adjust the position of the adjuster nut, then re-measure the clutch pedal travel.
Repeat this procedure until the clutch pedal travel is as specified.
6. Once the adjuster nut is correctly positioned, and the pedal travel is correctly set, securely tighten the cable locknut.
Where necessary, refit any disturbed air cleaner duct/housing components.
