The Clutch


Recommended Posts

Im having a few issues with the clutch and the mechanics seem to say that the clutch is hydraulic. Whats all the cable replacement about then????

Anyway, never send in a beautiful blonde for you to do the service, they quoted her on a new clutch saying the original might need replacement for being driven too hard. What a load of crap, surely these clutches last more than 50K under NORMAL conditions.

YUP, they want something like 1300 for a new clutch. Theres nothing wrong with the old one, the bastards just wont adjust it. Might have to go in myself one of these days and use a few F words.

i'll join you! i'll be your background vocalist with those F words :D

By cables do you mean the gear selector cables? Because they connect the gear lever to the gearbox (about 1m forward and around to the left) nothing to do with the clutch, the clutch is hydrolic, that's why the bl**dy service guys at Wollongong don't want to play with mine, I told them is was a small adjustment that was needed to the clutch master cylinder and they just said, 'if there was a fix we would have been told by TOYOTA..' :angry::angry::angry:

Anyway I'll get it fixed one day, it's only really a problem from 1-2 in lift for me. 40,000K service coming up and I think I'll organise it to go to Sydney City Toyota for that one where they know what they are doing...

All I can say is that Josh Sady's Toyota in Essendon was a rip off for the service as well, I compared Quotes with Rick Wolaney in Werribee and there were some price differences on itmes such as Oil filters. And what the hell are they charging Sundries for??? thats a bit unexplainable, at least at Rick Wolaney they charged Environmental Duty but Sundries??? its a bit open to suggestion. Maybe they are charging me for Porno Mags they buy for their workers. Anyway time for some fone calls tomorrow.
