Juddering could just be some hairline cracks on the flywheel - quite common, first WRX did it from 60k miles and was still going strong at 100k when I sold it.

New clutch is £250ish plus fitting IIRC. Try importcarparts.co.uk for the clutch.

Cheers guys. I have the car booked in for a 60000 mile service and so I was looking to buy the clutch prior to give to the guy doing it. Any chance of some model no's or links etc so that I can grab one? I did a search but all that comes back are quite old threads.

Is this the right kinda thing?

I got an Exedy clutch from BOB'5 on Scoobynet for £199, cheapest I could find it Oct last year. 230mm one fit my SF5 00 plate. I got someone local to fit it.

John.

Import Car Parts - Japanese car parts for Subaru, Nissan, Honda, Toyota, Lexus, Mitsubishi and more list an OE clutch for £239. Worth asking an specialist before buying though. I spoke to the guys at Cotswold Subaru (decent dealer) about mine that has 100k on it plus being quite heavy and near the top of travel. They reckoned that so long as it wasn't slipping then it should be ok for a while.

Seems a bit early to be gone at 60k - both my previous Imprezas went well past 80 - 90k no probs.

I bought my car at 31k and by 33k it needed a new clutch, the previous owners towed a caravan so it was well worn.
Put one of the ebay 230mm exedy ones in, top clutch with very good clamping pressure :icon_wink:

As I have the AF turbo to go on, will the OEM version be ok?
I'll have to do mine soon - I won't put in anything special unless I come across a bargain. Unless you're going to take it drag racing....

My last Foz went to 120k on the original clutch so I'm mildly annoyed that I've got to 70-odd and it's about dead. Then again this one has twice the power although I'm not nasty to the clutch.


BTW there is an adjustable pushrod on the clutch that will lower the contact point and give you some more time.

:icon_biggrin: good man!
Might get one myself at that price - mine is pretty tired too but still has some meat in it so not desperate at this stage.
