Thumbs down $$$$$ Clutch probs

i am needing a new clutch for my focus. the ford dealer tells me that its going to be .................... get this $1100 to get a new clutch installed

best quote i could get is $520 for the clutch alone and thats before tax

i have never paid more than $350 for a clutch before and that was 6 puck for a SBC

One of the things I found out is that nobody sells it, you have to order it directly from Ford.

You should go to a scrapyard...

BUt ford are little trixters when it comes to parts...

here are some "sport" after market clutches
dont worry the page takes time to load, but they go from :

Fits on:
01-03 Ford Focus ZX3
*FF1-HDR4 ACT Clutch Kits - Heavy Duty Pressure Plate w/ 4-Pad Race Disc $302.24_Each

to:

Fits on:
00-01 Ford Focus / ZX3 2.0L 4Cyl.
07-164-HDTZ Clutch Masters Clutch Kits - Stage 3 (FX300) $488.16_Each

dont even go on page 2 and 3 its 600$+

if worst comes to worst, check if you can hook up a trashed focus and buy the whole damn tranny cheap its the same amount of work no?

Complain about all that stuff till you have a german car, then you cry at prices.

$25 for a rubber exhaust hanger, $200 for igniton wires, lord knows about brakes...

Ugh
