I haven't yet had a quote for fitting a new clutch (it needs doing soon). However I have seen others post figures of £700+, for a main dealer.
Unless somewhere like Mr Clutch has a sneaky way to replace the clutch without removing the engine, then it *is* an expensive repair.
The good new, possibly, is that I'd expect an engine-out repair to make it cheaper to also replace the cambelt at the same time. But I'd think you're still looking at close to £1000 from somewhere other than a dealer.
I'm thinking about doing exactly this repair myself, as spending £1000 on a car worth around £1000 is madness, IMHO.
