Question about 2002 Land Rover Freelander
If I need a new clutch does it have to be done in a garage? If so is it expensive?
My name is Mike. The clutch itself is relatively inexpensive,. The cost of changing one out is the big expense as the process is labor intensive. The engine and transmission need to be separated, the old clutch removed, the new one install, then the engine and transmission rejoined.
While it can be accomplished under a shady tree, the process is greatly accelerated by having the vehicle up on a lift in a garage.
Call around for pricing, most shops will give you a flat rate quote. Or if you know a mechanic that owes you a favor AND you aren't in a hurry, you can save a large portion of the expense.
