Clutch failure in 2009 Toyota Corolla Ascent

Recommended Posts

I have a complete failure on the clutch system in my 2009 manual Toyota Corolla Ascent. It is just two months out from the 3 years warranty period and has only done about 40000 km. The dealer diagnosed the problem to be the concentric slave cylinder in the clutch system. This is located inside the clutch housing and would require the removal of the gearbox to replace it. The part is not available in Australia and requires to be ordered from Japan ! which will take 3 to 6 weeks to arrive! Toyota is willing to pay for the part but not the labour costs involed in installing a new one. The part I believe is around the $300 mark whereas the labour is about $1000 ! Has anyone encounter this problem before in fairly new Toyota cars? I certainly like to get some feedback from Toyota owners with similar problem.
