I just replaced my clutch on my FIRE engined Uno at the weekend. Price of just the clutch (trade) was £40, retail was £60.

Trade price to supply and fit a clutch to my car was at least £120. Joe Average in a high street clutch place would pay more like £150.

So to get it supplied and fitted for £120 is good! £80 I doubt it, it's at least a two hour job so the labour alone would be more than that.

Normally a clutch change involves replacing the friction plate, the pressure plate and the release bearing.

Or you could change it yourself if you have a decent tool set. Not a nice job, but can be done at home. Took me the better part of a days work, though the most awkward job was removing the driveshafts. It was made worse because I have a turbo anti-roll bar fitted that gets in the way :bang:

Punto might be easier than a Uno because it has a bigger engine bay?
