Jimny Clutch
« on: July 04, 2011, 18:29:11 »
Hi All

Well the clutch in my '00 Jimny is now starting to slip even more than I can ignore ('specially as a guy from work said the clutch on his Vit was the same for ages then just went).

I've had a quick dekko on the 'net and decided that it would take me more than the weekend to sort it.

The question I have is weather anyone has any sort of realistic quote for getting it sorted.

I got one about 2 years ago of about 400 quid but that was from an expensice garage.

Cheers

I didn't ask how much labour time was involved, but i know it would be longer than a rear wheel drive car, which was the last one i did.

I only found one post on t'internet showing how to do it and it looked intensive and fiddly, hence a long time to do.

I'm getting another quote off a friend of a friend who operates a one-man band type idea. he's been quite good on price for the other bits i know he's done.

Heres hoping...

no offence but a jimny is rear wheel drive m8y
its an relitive easy job tbh

1 school of thought is remove the engine and fit the clutch that way couple of hrs work
2nd school of thought is take the intermediate prop and pull the gearbox back to the t-case and change the clutch that way
again couple of hrs work

you will get more info on bigjimny website martin will be able to help you more than me
they are good lads on their

Cheers simon,

Yeah the guide on that site is the one i looked at before. One problem is that my 'tool set' is a mish-mash of hybid bits and bobs my family has cobbled together. Then altered to suit another purpose.

Therefore sods law states I never have the correct tools for the job.  :sad:

The other problem is my back problems just don't allow me to crawl around under cars for very long any more. (blame cyclo-cross. Wrapping yourself around trees isn't good).  :shocked:

I'll see what the second quote comes in at and decide what to do then.

Thanks for the suggestions tho.  :cheesy:

I'm in Surrey.

The second quote came in at a more reasonable 'about 300 quid'.

TBH I'll prob go with that jst to save me swearing lots, getting [!Expletive Deleted!] off, throwing my dolly out of my pram and end up breaking something.  :cheesy:

Cheers

All done.

He found a couple more bits whilst he was in there and did them as well.

450 quid total inc kit, fitting, oil seals and fitting, and oil flush and change.

Then I stalled it twice manovering out of the car park 'cos the bitting point is so different.  :embarrassed:
