Default Clutch in NM Petrol

G'Day,

Just had the Pajero back from a timing belt service, and the mechanic reckons after a test drive that the clutch will need attention soon. He says the pedal is a long way out before the clutch takes up (I thought it was always like this) and that I must be just adjusting my driving to suit. I've done a few tests and it isn't slipping as such but it feels a little spongy/sloppier than before (unless thats just me thinking this now that its been brought to my attention).

I'm really easy on the clutch and driveline, same with previous owner (I know them) and only done 190,000kms. Mechanic reckons $1600 for the new clutch installed, or $2300 if it is a dual mass (they can't tell until its out apparently).

Is the 2002 NM Petrol single or dual mass? And does this all sound normal to you lot? I would've expected a much longer life out of a clutch with the way I drive it...

Cheers, Tayler.

Also should I opt for a Heavy Duty clutch if it need replacing? What is the difference?

Only the 3.2 DiD got the dreaded DMF (Dual mass flywheel), so you are in luck.
$1600 sounds slightly on the expensive to do a clutch.
I paid $660 in labour (at the MM dealer that I use) to have my DiD clutch and flywheel changed. Add another $30 for a genuine spigot bearing.
For your V6, a clutch kit should be able to be had for $500 to $600, e.g. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Exedy-Clu...item23295933b3
Then add another $100 or so to have the flywheel machined.
So I think you should be able to get the job done for between $1300 and $1400.
Cheers, Dan.

Oh yeah, and if you regularly tow something heavy, then it may be worth looking at a HD clutch. If not, then I personally wouldn't bother.
Dan.

I think those kays you have got are great. I'm on my second at 210K Changed it at 130 and I reckon I'll be back for a new one soon. I do a lot of deep sand driving here in Broome and towing very step tracks etc so I'm happy with the kays I got.
