hydraulic throwout bearing

hey guys.. went to go bleed my clutch line cuz i thought it had air in it from one of my earlier posts.. the metal lines going into the trans were awfully loose.. i attached the bleed line, and pumped the clutch twice and fluid was everywhere.. i figure the tubing snapped off or came loose. anyway.. how much should it cost me to get this done? autozone has the bearing for $99.. i got a quote from the local dealer here for $670 installed..

Awwwwwwwwwwww... So he wants to go OFF-ROAD does he????

$670??? no way...find someone else...my line snapped a few months ago, which sucked...i took it to a local mechanic and it was $250 installed...maybe i just found a good deal, but 670 is way excessive

If you are replacing the throw out bearing, you should also change the clutch. Shouldn't be any more in labor because they are removing it anyway too get to the throw out bearing. If the bearing is bad then you know the clutch will be going soon. It isn't a very hard job. Just drop the tranny, Everything is right there. Shop manual explains everything. You and a buddy can probably do a complete repair on one saturday

Removing the clutch is NOT required to replace the internal slave cylinder/throw out bearing. My buddy and I did mine in about 3 hours start to finish in my driveway. We're both mechanics, and have a tranny jack. It's easily doable on a Saturday with a couple of buds.

Replacing the clutch while you're in there is a good idea though.
