Labour time to drop transmission and inspect clutch?

Post by DWE81 » Thu Aug 09, 2018 5:42 pm

Hi guys,

My car is juddering really badly when taking off, this only happens when the car has been sitting for a while ie. over night, but then stops and goes back to normal after a few take offs. I'm undecided of what to do as there is no way I'm paying to replace the clutch/flywheel considering I had the timing chain replaced a few months back and its just not worth it for this car.

I'm hoping however the issue is a leak contaminating the clutch which explains why it only judders when the car has been sitting for a long time, so anyone know the labour time to drop the transmission and inspect the clutch?

Don’t know the book time. With a lift it can be done in 1.5 hours.

Think this is fairly common and to do with DMF. Someone with more knowledge will hopefully chime in. Had this on my old E81, mostly when it was cold outside.
