Clutch replacement cost

Hi all,

I own a 2011 Aygo (998 cc).  I've had some problems with the clutch clanking when depressed and slight juddering when pulling away in first gear.  I've been advised by the Toyota dealership that I need a replacement clutch and flywheel at a cost of £950.  However, I called Mr Clutch for a quote and they told me that my model doesn't have a Dual Mass Flywheel so it won't need replacing, and have quoted me £390 for the clutch replacement.

Can anyone help advise as to what I should go with, as I'm completely clueless about cars and don't want to get ripped off - would the flywheel definitely need doing?

Thank you.  So the flywheel shouldn't need replacing?  I'm also a bit annoyed as I had the car serviced at the same dealership only two weeks ago, which supposedly included a check of the clutch,  only now a couple of hundred miles later they're telling me it shouldn't even be driven.

My clutch clanks on release and has done so for the the last 15,000 miles. I've got AA cover, so I'm not fussed if it does fail. Only then will I be replacing it. I think you should get a second or third opinion from non Toyota dealers, before splashing out on a new clutch. How many miles on the clock?

Hi,

I know some owners whose clutch failed. Toyota always recommended to replace everything, including the gearbox, sometimes. In some cases, repairs cost a third or half the value of the car. None had the repairs done in a Toyota dealership because their quotations were ridiculously high, especially if you consider the price of the spare parts that need replacing.

I would ask quotations in small garages.

The flywheel usually only needs replacing if the clutch has worn down to the rivets and scored the face of the flywheel. As yours isn't slipping, I doubt if it's worn that far.

As David stated, unless the flywheel has been damaged by the clutch rivets, this should be a clutch only job. The flywheel is standard - 'Not' dual mass flywheel. Also remember, this should be cheap since the Citroen C1 and Peugeot 107 are the same car.  Parts should be inexpensive. 
I did a quick search and found this - https://clutch-repair.co.uk/2018/09/18/clutch-fault-c1-aygo-107/
Ask for the old parts when the job is done. This will tell you what the condition of the clutch. I did when my Avensis was done last year.

I have heard that when replacing the clutch plate it is well worth upgrading it to a Yaris clutch plate which is heavier duty and lasts a lot longer.......its a straight swap I believe...... Mine had one fitted just before I bought the car and Ive done 101k since then with no issues......

And like 007matt suggested, get a quote from a local mobile mechanic ........they don't have many overheads, totally rely on repeat work/recommendations/reputation and usually get the job done a whole lot cheaper and quicker........

The Yaris clutch was a standard production fitment from early 2009 - so the OP's 2011 Aygo will already have the larger Yaris clutch.

Just had the clutch done on my 2015 Aygo with 77k on the clock. Had it done at a local garage in york, not sure whether I’m ok to say the name but it was York Auto Services, £360 fitted including VAT, not as bad as I thought 😀

Sounds like you got a good deal on the gearbox, was that because you picked it up?

Super deal. Yes I did actually. Looked as good as new and once fitted drives like new. purchased from a car breakers in Birmingham. Very helpful people. Via eBay delivered cost 175.00.

How did it happen, please?

Did you notice that the disc felt slippy and changed it preventively? or did it fail suddenly and immobilized the car?
