Has any one repaced a cluch in 3.0 litre GU 2002 model?
Can you give me an idea on the cost and whether you used Original or after market
What is the approximate cost and can any one recommend some one in Melbourne or Geelong other than Nissan that can do the job
Thanks

Just fitted one yesterday.
Used Exedy solid flywheel and clutch kit, all up it cost the customer $2400.
The original dual mass flywheels fail as this one did,they spew there guts out and then rattle like you would'nt believe!
Fitting a solid flywheel does'nt make any difference to the vehicle at all.
The gearbox is an absolute bastard!!! to get out.

Nothing wrong with my series80 clutch at 210K. But I priced replacing it last week. The average quote around town is $1150. When I rang Brisbane (a city without the word Gold in it), the quote was $700.
I am quite happy to spend a day in Brizvagas for that sort of saving !

We charge approx $1000 to do a 80 series clutch(brand new daikin) for someone to do it for $700 i would be very careful!! it does'nt add up..

Genuine rear seals are around $70.
Daiken clutch lasted 12 months in mine and was noisier than a toyota one. Put a toyota one in and beautiful.
ACDC do you have Toyota Trade Grade Prices where you are?
Please don't say them on this forum but if you do I would be interested in private emailing you to discuss the difference. I am in western Sydney.

Yes I can see how the money adds up. I've actually changed a HJ60 clutch by myself...and I'll never do one again.
Machine flywheel...yes , get rid of hot spots, so why do the Toyos still shudder when cold ?
Rear main oil seal...how often do they go ?
I'm not slagging good mechanics, they have to eat also. But my $700 clutch quote was from a Briz dealer as opposed to local 1200 ones.

120scruiser,
I use an aftermarket rear seal never had any problems with them,regarding Daikin clutches never had a problem either but i always lube the pressure plates on there pivot points before fitting and remove bell housing from gearbox to hot wash regrease all pivot and wear points,machine flywheel,replace rear main seal all just part of the job if i don't do it 100% the first time i lose!!
Some people get away with short cuts but not me i learnt my lesson years ago.

Footloose,
For what a rear main seal costs its not worth leaving!
I'm not saying i'm the cheapest in town but if i do a job i do it my way or not at all, i hate come backs!!

I agree with you in doing the job right the first time.
I had some drama with after market seals some years ago so now go genuine with most seals and especially valve cover gaskets. The Mazda/Ford B6 engines seem to give heaps of valve cover leaks and the ones I fit with genuine gaskets never come back.
I also lube all pivot points in clutches. Isn't that moly grease great stuff?
I instill in my staff that if you take an extra hour on the job it doesn't cost me but if the job comes back thats when it costs me so do it right the first time. Our warranty claims are very rare now.
Cheers
Its been good talking

I replaced mine last year $3000 this was with a new nissan dual mass flywheel
the other one they say was stuffed to much movement. i had this replaced bu a clutch specialist but after i took the old one to nissan to complain about only getting 100000 out of the flywheel he stated that he would nmot have replaced it.
i learnt the hard way, but if i would have had nissan replace it they might have said that the flywheel was stuffed and it would have cost me more.

Also to the topic if i was to have replaced the flywheel with a solid one would this void the warrnty on the box if there was a problem.

I doubt if it would void warranty.
Does fitting diff locks void warranty???

Mark
You can check out my site
HERE
There is not much about the clutch replacement but the one we do is a Daiken solid state and works out cheaper than a new Nissan flywheel and clutch kit.
Daiken make the original Nissan dual mass flywheel and recommend to replace it with the solid state one.
Gearbox is a mongrel.
I wouldn't attempt it at home unless you have some good gear and plenty of help.
You will have to remove an engine mount, the transfer case and then the gearbox but it is a very tight sqeeze.
Cheers
