How long does it take to replace a clutch?

I got an estimate from a local repair shop for replacing the clutch in my car. They had estimated six hours of labor, which really drove the price up. How long does it actually take to replace a clutch?

Replacing a clutch on a vehicle can take between two to six hours. Many factors can affect how long replacing a clutch takes, including:
  • Type of vehicle
  • Location of transmission
  • How accessible the transmission is
  • Extent of clutch damage
If you’re getting your clutch replaced, it’s probably a good idea to clear your schedule for most of the day, as the job can take several hours to complete.
