Quick Question.
How long would it take a Saab mechanic to install a new clutch in a 9000. ie. How many hours work?

Thanks

A good, fast mechanic that has replaced several clutches, 3-5 hours. But all mechanics will charge you the book amount for labor when replacing a clutch (or any other major repair). They make money by being able to do the job in 5 hours while charging you for the 12 hours (I'm guessing) that the book says it will take.


The advantage to you is that you don't have to pay any more than the estimate if it takes the mechanic longer, like having to deal with severly corroded fasteners, etc.
