I have enjoyed owning a Note for the past year, however I am now 'surprised' to learn the clutch has burnt out. with 13000 miles on the clock, no difficulty in changing gear, no 'smell' of burning, on any other symptoms I am at a loss. I am still waiting to hear from the dealership, as to whether this if a 'Nissan' problem or mine. I have been a car owner for over thirty years, and have never had to replace a clutch!!Any comments/help would be appreciated. I am not lookingforward to trying to find £800 for the job...

£800 are they taking the piss?

Well less than half that at any decent independent garage using OEM parts.

What are the symptoms then. What is the clutch doing (or not doing) that means it requires replacing.

The car was towed away on Friday, after a flat tyre, the RAC chap couldn't move it, said the clutch has burnt out, the dealership has agreed with him. I'm waiting to see the evidence, which they will supply via photos.

Withthe car in neutral a "burnt out clutch" will not preventit from moving. The only things I can think of that wouldprevent a car from moving when in neutralare a broken/siezed gearbox/diff or seized on brakes.
Ever considered that garages might have a handy burnt out clutch they use to con customers with.

Did you choose the garage it was towed to or did the RAC man. Insert your conspiracy theory here.

Just for info, I got a clutch replaced on a 08 petrol note about 6 months ago at a cost of £400 at a nissan dealer, so you are getting seriously ripped off at £800. I think the clutch kit is about £250 + labour to fit it.

Just to add, as I could not believe an £800 quote that I have just called west London Nissan to ask for a 'ballpark' figure and was quoted £4-500, so about £300-350 at an independent then.

Don't let them remove your old clutch. They will charge you to reassemble it so that you take it to a 'proper' garage.

Thank you all for your input. I am hoping to get some help from the RAC on this matter. My concern is obliviously, I wont be able to prove the clutch wasn't my fault, despite the meagre 1300 miles, and my 30 plus years of driving, without any 'sniff' of problems with a clutch.Another thing , they cant examine the clutch without removing the gearbox, which needs to happen if the clutch is faulty, then I wont have to pay...

I'm not holding my breath!!!

Hi
I own a 2016 nissan note dig petrol I started to have problems with my car with the clutch so I had a diagnostics done because I took an extended warrant out with motorangel and when it came back they said the clutch was burnt out I had to have the flywheel and cylinder and clutch replaced, when I took the warranty out it suppose to cover wear and tear and clutch parts, the warranty came back they would replace the cylinder and the flywheel but I had to pay for the 3 piece clutch because they said it was aggressive driving, I am so fed up what proof have they got to say that it as 40.000 miles on the clock and i am second owner and kept up with my servicing which was done a few week back. sorry to go on a bit still at the garage since last Thursday
