haha, no i totally get that... 1/3 was a ballpark guess after looking under mine for the first time with the panel off... i mainly meant that it certainly wont take a shop an actual 12 hours & probably not even a first timer with the correct tools & moderate knowledge of clutch changes1/3rd is optimistic. 3 motor mounts have to come out, lower control arm, trans etc. Clam does not need to come off, but it is far easier. A home mechanic can do it with floor jacks etc. but in that case I would recommend pulling the clam.
Well, as I live in Europe, pricing is in Euro. They charged me 1100Euro in total for installing new clutch ( that I provided, costed me 300EUR).What did they wind up charging you?
