if that were so easy then everyone would do it themselves and there would be no need for mechanics....figure $1200 out the door for a new clutch...the parts, around $400 (plate, disc and throwout) and $800 for labor...and incidentals (rags, disposal etc) .... around 12 beans I would think....

Some thoughts and resources

A clutch replacement is not a casual maintenance task. With M20 engines, the two upper transmission to block bolts are especially difficult to access and remove.

I drive a 91 318i and paid $625 (parts and labor) to have the clutch, throw-out bearing, pressure plate, and rear transmission mounts replaced. You/they will also have to send your flywheel out to a machine shop for inspection and/or resurfacing.

Here's a link on an E36 318is clutch replacement how-to for a general idea on how extensive this procedure is

Pelican Technical Article: BMW Clutch Replacement

Good luck with it.

$625 is good! not a dealer though I bet....I'll split the difference and say $900 then....believe me, there will be other things that come up along the way....watch....best of luck regardless.....
