How many hours to replace a clutch and flywheel?

Mines good but I'very got 221,000 on it, have my new set ready that I need in anyway to handle my turbo upgrade. What are we looking at for hours typically?

Talking about what you may be charged or how long it's going to take to do yourself.

I charge 8hrs to do a clutch on an AWD including slave replacement and bleeding.



With that mileage you may want to get, exhaust studs/nuts at the bottom of the cats (not sure what condition would be having no road salt from North East winters), throwout/pilot bearing and slave cylinder

I'd expect to be in the area of 8-12hrs. I know some shops are 1.5, 2 or 2.5 times warranty.

Most shops charge 6-10 hours of labor from what I've gotten quoted.

Thx guys. I was quoted a fair 8. As for the cats, they're coming out with catless downpipes .

Not doing it myself. I'm guessing it's also not complicated for a generic transmission guy and doesn't require a BMW specific tech. A standard ASE certified transmission shop could do it? I have parts in hand.

I did it in small steps over the winter myself, so 3 months.
Looking back it wasn't too tough of a job, but it can tax casual mechanics on jack stands.

I'm looking to have it done but not get taken to the cleaners.

Looking at the bottom side of my car for 16 hrs doesn't sound fun.
