Damn, damn, damn!!!!

I smoked the clutch in my Xterra at 41,000 miles. Anyone work for Nissan? I need to find out how much a new one is for a 2002 S/C SE 5-speed. I guess I shouldn't pop the damn clutch so much.

Psshhhh, easy money.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

Ahhh memories... If it makes you feel better, I went through two 5 speed transmissions on my older Nissan pickup within 20k miles. It didnt like water puddles too much.

I guess thats why they say use the brakes to slow and stop the car. Brakes are cheaper to replace.

Parts you'll more than likely need is clutch plate, throw out bearing and resurface the fly wheel.

Was the clutch properly adjusted? Does the manual say more to adjust?

OK, dealer said $1300 because it is 4wd and there are some stinking torsion bars to deal with. Come on people help me out here.

Marlene,

Anne and I have had some work done at the Mighty on Weber right where it turns to Larkin. I'm not sure he'll do clutches, but it's worth a try. The guy works his but off there and has gone the extra mile for us more than once. His prices have been more than reasonable.

I called a friend of mine who works on my truck and the companies trucks, he doesn't do clutches. He said $1300 is not bad. His Camero costed $1500 to get it done

I got 184,000 on my Sonomas clutch and it still chirpped in 3 gears.D


But just think how much it would cost if you smoked an automatic tranny clutch pack.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

i worked for nissan guam for 10 years. i emailed my old boss(a fellow sb rider) to see what kind of deal i could get you for the clutch disc, pressure plate and release bearing. don't know how urgent you need the vehicle but parts coming from guam would set you back about 14 days.

i've also got another scenario that may have led to your clutch failure. might be a possible warranty issue. you or gsxrtony can pm me for that.
