Carina E 1.6 4afe Clutch High Biting Point

Hi everyone,

I have noticed that my Carina's clutch has quite a high biting point. Its done 126k miles and I am unsure if its ever had a new clutch. Is there a way to adjust the clutch or do I need to replace it?

Is clutch replacement on the carina fairly straight forward to do if it needs replacing and anyone know what a garage would charge for labour and parts out of interest?

Thanks

They are self-adjusting hydraulic. It will probably be the original. If it isn't slipping there is no need to change it. If you do change it, they are 'relatively' simple. A garage will charge 3-4 hours labour. The main reason is that the drive shafts must be removed from the transmission and aren't merely unbolted. Therefore extra labour. £250 (including the parts) is a reasonable ball-park figure. Shouldn't be more.

Thanks for the info, no it isn't slipping just high biting point. I was just worried that it might just fail but I guess it would start slipping badly before it was on its way out wouldn't it?
