Hi all, Have been quoted $2,900 for a non dual mass clutch kit replacement for my '04 NP Pajero. Is this a reasonable price or should I shop around ? We're off to Ningaloo next weekend and need to replace before ? Any recommendations ?

Thanks

Is that a new flywheel with it? You may be surprised what a genuine clutch and fitting may be with dealer fitting! Nissan want around$600 for a kit and $700 to fit! And you get a warranty if they bother to honour it! Thats a standard kit for a 4.2 td. Michael

Of course it includes a new flywheel. It's no good putting a new clutch back on a dual mass flywheel if you are having failures. Here is some reading for you.

Peter, He didn't say he was having problems or failures, he said he needed to replace it. Michael

That's the dearest price I have heard of. Let your fingers do the walking and get some other quotes. Small private garages are usually cheaper.

Hi Justin.
I believe you should be able to purchase a replacement aftermarket single mass clutch considerably cheaper than that if you ring around. A quick look online suggests a similar price for a range of 4WD's and commercial utility type vehicles. I think it wise to replace with a single mass unit from my investigations.
I replaced the dual mass clutch in my 2008 Ford Ranger in Feb this year at 70k, severe rattles from flywheel springs at idle.
The single mass clutch replacement kit included new flywheel, clutch plate, thrust bearing, new H/T clutch bolts and alignment tool. The whole kit cost $1150.00 from Wrights Clutches in Lismore NSW. The clutches would be of a similar size and should I believe cost within a $100.00 or so of this price.
The fitting cost for the Ranger was $450.00 at a local workshop (large country town) which I believe to be very reasonable. It appears to have greater clamping force without a hard pedal and has a smooth action.
Its interesting that many of these OEM dual mass units in a range of brands including Mitsibishi are having short lived lives not being necessarily related to abuse. Mine was smooth and showed little wear ,no hotspots or oil contamination.
I note that Ford and Mazda have returned to fitting single mass clutches in their latest Rangers and BT-50 and have been told other manufacturers are doing same.
Note that dual mass clutches are supposed to relieve vibration and be smoother, however at the cost of more complexity and don't do well with loads outside their design loading parameters.
Trust this assists, Ross.

Justin is the price you quoted including fitting or supply only?
Here are some examples from Fleabay and even the most expensive are over $1000 cheaper on a supply only basis.

Hi, as quoted it's $2,200 for the kit (2nd price he found was $2,800) & the remainder is for about 6 hours of labour.
Becoming more & more dubious. Thx for the advice everyone !

We have a 2006 NP Pajero and had a new clutch kit fitted with solid flywheel and paid $1800 fitted by our local Mitsubishi dealer a few months ago so $2900 sounds way over the top. We live in Moonta Yorke Peninsula SA. Hope this helps.

I have been quoted two prices for clutch replacement both are with dual mass flywheel, they were $3065 and $3400 including fitting to 2002 np pajero at mitsubishi dealers.
What you have been quoted is steep for a single mass set up in my opinion.
