Garage to fit clutch in Bristol?

Hi all

 

My normal garage (Martin down at Luccombe in Bristol - brilliant bloke) doesn't have the kit to fit a new clutch and flywheel to my 350z

 

He recommended Bristol Transmissions and I just spoke to them...when I mentioned wanting a single mass flywheel fitted they pretty much put the phone down on me! Said it causes "problems" and they have been caught up in "blame games" after fitting them.

 

So: does anyone know of a decent place that will fit a clutch and flywheel? Cheers!

Er, any competent garage can change the clutch and flywheel on a Z. I did it on the road outside my house and I'm not a mechanic by any means! The only "specialist" tools you need are a torque wrench for the flywheel bolts and a clutch alignment tool which normally comes in the box with the clutch. single mass flywheels can cause issues in some cars, but the 350z generally isn't one of them. It's just a little bit more noisy than the dual mass one.

I've heard that the "book" time from Nissan is around 5 hours, so your guy saying 6 to allow for issues is probably about right. H-dev have a list of prices on their site:

look at around £300 including VAT for the clutch plus a bit for the flywheel, h-dev are reasonable on price and great on quality :)

Would recommend Horsham Developments too.You may also want to tak them about looking at doing the master / slave cylinder at the same time. As from my experience,its worth doing both while the car is in for the clutch change
