rx4 suggestions???

hi guys,

i have 2 rx4's both which have developed serious faults which i have posted over the last year or two.

for some time now my wife has been driving the rx4 with a slipping clutch but looks like its ready to pack in soon as its real bad when trying to go up hills.

anyways my other rx4 which sits in my driveway kinda wasting away slowly developed an immobiliser fault where it just seemed to consistenly turn over with no bitting on the engine. so its a non starter but having read an earlier post i started...

RX4 Immobiliser

do you think i could transfer anything from my current rx4 to my non runner? everything on the non runnner was fully functional apart from this non starting issue but now that the clutch is slipping badly im prepared to experiment or transfer parts to see if i can get it working again.

if it was reasonably cheap to replace the clutch on the rx4 then i would get it done but i have no faith on a garage replacing it or even finding one that will tackle it. ive been told that its a pig of a job and im sure someone via forum mentioned it can cost above 600 to get it done!

can anyone recommend someone to carry out such a job within my location either a garage or forum member recommended??? im just outside Glasgow

any help at this time is greatly appreciated
