Default 313 clutch replacement

Hi guys

Any idea's on the cost of replacing the clutch in my 2000 313 sprinter van here in Australia. My mechanic is saying that the parts alone might be $3000 and that is non-genuine??? plus the cost of labour as well. Any idea on a supplier here in Australia that sells non-genuine.

Cheers

Steve..

Steve Your mechanic is having a lend of you.
Contact Chris in the UK for the parts you need Send a private message to SPRINTERUK
Chris supplies genuine Mercedes parts.

Even with freight air cargo via logistics 21 days you will be laughing all the way to the bank
Look at e Bay UK and you'll see how cheap they are .

Labor is two 1/2 hours tops to pull and refit.

Thanks Richard, I have sent Chris a PM. Hopefully get a price soon. Could not see any cheap ones on ebay UK so fingers crossed. Should I have the slave cylinder done at the same time and are the pressure plates able to be skimmed if required or are they replacement only??
Cheers
Steve

ask Chris for a complete kit costing
I could not recommended the re-use of an old pressure plate as the springs are likely weak and worn with groves below value.
From experience,not sprinters but Mercedes MB 100 and 1400 they usally let go a few thousand kilometers down the road the clutch fork bends and the damage is done.
Ask for a replacement master slave cylinder kit.
I think you may get a pleasant surprise of half the price you were asked to pay for one down under.
3 grand I guess that included everything apart from labor
