Re: Clutch, pump, belts, etc

Bad news, clutch gone (well the rubber ring anyway) so its a new clutch to be fitted next week. He's a nice bloke and took me underneath and showed me the play in the drive shaft.

My ongoing saga with the squeeling at the front appears to be down to the water pump or the last few pulleys, which is either of the adjuster pulleys. I've done everything else in there and not found it.

Just need some final advice on what the specialist has said I ought to do.

1/
He is saying that as the car has done 96,000 miles it could well be the pump, but, he says as the car has never had a replacement, it should be done anyway as they say they advise all there customers to replace them at 100,000.

2/
He also says that due to the noise, and the possibility that it is a pulley, which could be the cam belt, that I should have both the belts changed with the adjuster pulleys.
This he says, combined with the new clutch and water pump will give me piece of mind.

3/
He also has done me a tripple discount for having all the work done at the same time, which he says if I went to a main dealer would be the price just for the clutch?

This would be a cash payment and fully stamped up in the service book, and all for around 1250 for the lot! thats everything!
I reckon thats a good deal, and they are a well respected Porsche specialist!!

Should I go for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:ro lleyes:
That IS a good price. Dick Lovetts of Swindon quoted me almost 1,000 just to do the cam and balance belts. Unsurprisingly I'm letting Autofarm do them for 300.
