Default Re: Honda City ZX clutch

Here is a recent update on clutch unit replacement for my Honda City ZX (2006)
I finished 70K on this car, and had to replace the entire clutch unit (flywheel,etc). This was done at Dakshin Honda (Bangalore) and they charged me INR 25K.

Actually I did not find any major issues with my clutch/gear except that the clutch pedal had become very hard and my 2 previous service reports had observations and remarks by these service guys.

Though it was expensive, I did not find an alternative (rather did not want to take a risk by giving my car to a private garage) than to get this done at Honda authorised dealer

Have you noticed any improvements after overhaul?

Clutch pedal getting harder may also be the result of clutch pedal spring getting tight. Spray some WD40 and you will instantly feel it will be little smooth. Btw, I am running original clutch at 86k kms

So far no issues, the ride and clutch pedal is better. Dakshin guys told me to get back to them within 1 month regarding any complaints as this replacement does not guarantee/warannty for a longer term.
But again, nothing majorly different or does not feel like NEW.

Good to know that you are still using the original clutch , wish I could do that.

Sorry for reviving an old thread but thought this little bit of information may be of use to other Gen-2 City owners. I just overhauled the clutch of my 2005 City i-DSI this weekend for the first time. The car has traveled 160,000 kilometers - talk about Honda reliability . The flywheel could be salvaged after some skimming and polishing. Only the pressure plates and some other components were changed for Rs. 13k.

Although I've booked the 2014 Gen-4 City, I decided to fix the issue because there is no certainty when my particular color and variant choice in petrol becomes available. Also since this is my daily driver, I didn't want to take a chance.

I first noticed a problem 5 days before the overhaul when I noticed the clutch slipping on revving the engine on a relatively traffic-free road. Then the clutch pedal became progressively softer and at times it became difficult to engage a gear, especially first. The biggest sign was from a complete stop I put the car in first and without pressing the accelerator just released the clutch and the car rolled forward without stalling.

Is it any surprise why I swear by Honda even though I can buy cars costing three times as much? The car has always been serviced as per schedule and has never broken down on me.
