Labor Costs

So i've decided Its time for a new clutch, but while we're down there i decided to get a new lighter flywheel and to change the rear main seal. Now if i were to bring it to a profesional what would the labor be?

its for a 2000 Honda Prelude SH.

ALSO, what shop would you recommend for a good job with a decent price?

clutch, id say its a 4hr job. depending on the car.

so depends what the hourly rate is, but id say anywhere from $250 for just the labour to $400.

this is just on the clutch. the flywheel should not cost much more as its relatively the same job. the rear main seal however im not sure.

but for typical hondas, ur looking at around that price range.

Doesn't the SH have the MCU? It takes a little bit more time to take that off if it needs to be removed (I don't remember if it needs to be or not). I would expect that higher-end of the spectrum of SG's quote.

It's closer to 8 hrs for the SH model. The ATTS unit has to come out first. Once you get that unit out, it will look like a normal prelude. It's been years since i've done a SH but i remember the atts unit being a very close and tight fit

You should actually save on labour by providing a new flywheel since they don't have to machine it.

Most shops that could do it in under a day wouldnt be machining the flywheel.
Thats a service that is sent out and takes a day for turnaround.
Labour to reanre the flywheel as well as the rear main would add one-two hours to the job.
Yes this job is closer to 8 hours when all done. And cost you roughly $500 or more for labour plus any incidentals.

I find that very interesting that most shops wouldn't machine the flywheel.

I wouldn't want to do my brakes without machining/replacing the rotors or change a timing belt and not do the waterpump.

There's no way I would skimp out a day and a couple more hours of labour for a clutch job.

most rather replace the rotor than machine them.

i would assume because of the cost of time on the hoist. replacing the rotor is much faster. especially when ppl are expecting 5-10 bucks to machine a rotor, but takes probably a good 20-30mins of time to machine the rotor. now assuming the shop has 1 laithe, machining a rotor one after the other, just for the fronts, thats 1hr of machining which would mean the car is sitting on the hoist waiting for those rotors to be finished. while if u just change the rotors, u know they are new, and swapping them in and out are 5mins.

same goes with the fly. changing the flu rather than machining it means less hoist time.

Oh I totally hear you. Labour over parts cost.

My point is moreso that if most people are willing to ensure a new/true brake surface, why not on a clutch job? The cost of prematurely or re-doing the job just isn't worth it imo.

"most rather replace the rotor than machine them."


Bingo but a rotor worn to the point of requiring surfacing is usually ready for replacement anyhow. As for clutches 90% of the clutch jobs we do here involve a new lightweight flywheel. I'd assume the same for any enthusiast (person or shop) wanting cost effective performance improvements.
