New Clutch!

I realised my clutch was slipping last weekned after i was test driving my scoob when i fitted my new Magnex Exhaust.

The clutch doesn't seem to slip at low speeds, but if im doing say about 50+ and i put my foot down, the revs increase but the speed doesn't. :cry:

This definatly come on all of a sudden because i traveled about 140miles on Friday morning back 2 S.Wales from Southampton without any problems and realised the clutch had gone on the Saturday afternoon!

Saying that I think i finally killed off the clutch when i was pulling up on some ramps to change my Exhaust as i don't have a pit ops: So this tells me there wasn't many clutch miles 2 go anyway!

I have had a few quotes for a new Clutch Kit and my best offer was about 130. This seems like quite a good price, what do u guys think.?
I will try and change the Clutch myself on the weekend. Has anyone done this before? If so could u give me a coulple of tips as i have never done it before on a scoob.

Was also wondering if anyone has had a clutch replaced by a garage and how much it cost them? I bet its silly money.!

I've changed a gearbox, which is the same as doing the clutch.
It was a pig of a job and I wouldn't do it again.
Be careful if you get a lightened flywheel. No engine braking, more revs just to pull away and go through brake pads like they were going out of fashion.
Mines quite modified but I wont be having a lightened flywheel. :wink:
