Dealer has quoted just over £700 for a new clutch for my 1.6 diesel Ceed (now out of warranty) that has A low biting point. Sounds quite steep so I‘m thinking of getting a quote from an independent garage. My concern is that an independent garage might fit cheap parts. The old saying ‘buy cheap, buy twice’ comes to mind. Does anyone know who manufacturers clutches that are originally fitted on a Ceed? Also, am I right in thinking that the price quoted is expensive or whether it is par for the course? Thanks.

What's the mileage, and is it dual mass flywheel clutch or standard? Are you sure it's the clutch and not master/slave cylinder or old hydraulic fluid.

I would expect to pay about 500 for a standard clutch replacement and about 1k for a dmf clutch job (parts +labour).

Thanks for that. The mileage is 85k. The only information I have is from the garage who advised the clutch was on the way out after I’d had it in for a service. No mention was made of the master/slave cylinder or fluid. The car drives ok although sometimes it can be stiff to get into 1st gear. Its the 1.6 Crdi (134bhp versio). I’m not sure if it’s the standard or dual mass flywheel on this version.

Thanks. Looks like the Exedy clutches work better.

Mine's the same, getting low biting point at 90k miles. LUK clutches are really good. Update how you get on re price and what the biting point is like after.

Got round to getting the clutch replaced a few weeks ago. Took it to an independent and it only cost £387 compared to the £709 quoted by the dealer. Don’t know who manufactures the clutches fitted to new Kia’s but the garage fitted a Sachs clutch kit. From online reviews, it seems to be a decent brand. The garage said that this was one of the easier clutches that they’ve replaced so maybe the price I paid was reflected in the amount charged for labour. Big difference from what the dealer was quoting.
