      Comments about CARQUEST Clutch New Clutch Set:

      The product went together as described in my repair manual. It is not fun to replace the clutch components in any Front Wheel Drive vehicle. Having the correct quality parts the first time ensured no surprises during the process.

        The price of the replacement kit was affordable and the installation presented no problems for the mechanic. After the installation of the kit, the shifting of the car was much improved.

            Clutch was fairly easy to install. Set came with all parts needed and installation advise from store was great. Would highly recommend this product to anyone. Was quoted 950.00 to change it was able to do it myself for under 200.00. Can't complain about that.

              Instuctions were generic for all clutch makes and types. You should know how to do a clutch before tackling this type of project anyway.

                  Only problem was the retainer clip for the pull bearing was a hair narrow and would not allow the bearing to catch. Tried to install three times before I figured out the problem. Once I opened the retaining clip an eighth inch or so it snapped right into place.

                      A:

                      Hi Steve, I'm glad to assist you! This Clutch Set - Part No. MU70178-1 has a limited lifetime replacement warranty. The limited lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.

                      It is recommended to replace the flywheel and pilot bushing while replacing the clutch kit in your vehicle.

                      You should either replace the flywheel or have it resurfaced so that the new clutch disk has a flat, fresh surface. Using the worn flywheel can lead to shorter life on the new disk.
