Stock 98 prelude sh clutch

Hey guys,

my clutch is broken and the dealer i bought the car from will pay 50% of the price to replace it. What is the stock clutch inside of a honda prelude sh?- I need to know because i want them to put a stock honda clutch not something else so I need a picture of it or model # so that I can identify the clutch when they put it in. I've searched but i can't find any pictures of the stock clutch only after market- I went to 3 other mechanics and they all told me that the best clutch is the factory stock clutch and thats what i want put back in.... PLEASE! help !!

Go to another Honda dealer for peace of mind at least. Dealers are pretty crooked most of the time but that's basically their job.

Your best bet is calling up another dealer in your area and getting some kind of quote.

What you can also do is call the same dealership you bought the car from and check if their giving you a different price for the clutch.

If I was you, I would've never signed the paper before having the work done. That's why this is happening to you. You shouldn't have to come out of pocket when the vehicle had existing defects.

So true, so true. I would go to a Authorized Honda Dealership get a quote and go back to the used car sales place and tell them here it is and for them to fork up the dough (50%)

I would not trust them to put in the clutch I would bet they find a throw out bearing and just replace that, then you might be stuck with a worn clutch with a newer bearing. And they will be $200 richer. Sounds like they are snowballing you. If you have it in writing that they will pay half of the clutch job get the quote from a Honda Dealer and say okay here it is and I need your half of the money. Good Luck

Hey guys,

Yeah they're gonna pay for it. I called honda and asked for a stock clutch for my car, it comes out toa total of 359.00, i'm buying the clutch and they're installing it and were going 50/50. I've been driving it alot during the weekend and it turns out that part of the issue was me- i was being really heavy footed, now i know when the clutch grabs and so i don't have the issue anymore at street driving conditions only when i rev high and shift hard. But for the most part its not a problem. Man that car is fun, lol I went to drive around hollywood after i gave it a good wash, cleaned the tires and rims and man people were checking it out =D
