Default Skoda 1.8Tpi, New clutch at 53K ??? HElp before I get robbed too...

Hi,
The car has been misbehaving lately. It is jerky at starts while leaving the clutch, and then while accelerating initially in the 3rd I felt this but now in almost all gears, I see the revs shoot up but there is no power delivered to the wheels, then suddenly all the power somehow gets delivered and it accelerates hard and bring the revs back, anyway to cut it short I need a new clutch overhaul. and it has only driven 53K kms? Is this normal?

I have read about a few other stories here and we all know how infamous Skoda is with their service so can someone please help me in this regard? How much should a clutch overhaul be for? Does anyone know any good mech. in Pune who can do this for me, I rather not go to Skoda Service for this.

...Peter, NormallyCrazy or Viper can you guys please help.

Please help.
Thanks a lot.
Nanu

At that miliage , you might be looking at a new flywheel also. The jerking points to that Rs 45000 totally.

Alternative is to source the single mass flywheel and clutch assembly and do this privately

Now, Skoda has Quoted me 48K for it plus labor.

My Dealer in Kashmere Gate, Delhi has Quoted me 22k, for the kit
But is saying I dont need to chance the entire clutch Kit (2 clutch Plates and Flywheel), but I need only change the 2 plates and should be fine as there should be no issue with the Flywheel? Am I being advised correctly? The 2 plates only cost about 7.6k from him.

Any suggestions guys, I dont want to spend 84K like someone else did here on the forums

How do you know that your flywheel is okay?

The 48k is for the flywheel also. At 57k, it is best to change the flywheel as you will be back in around 15k to do so anyway.
