    Default GLI 2008 - Gear Problem

    Today I went to Toyota Rawal to get some work done on my Corolla GLI 2008 (Car has done 82k KMs). After the work was done the workshop supervisor told me that I should get the car's Clutch Plate, Pressure Plate and Bearings changed and should not take the car to mountainous side. I got a rough quote from the Service Adviser (as I was in a hurry I got a rough quote, not the 2 weeks valid one which is printed on the paper).
    He gave me a quote of RS 35-38k including labor and all parts. Told me to get an appointment for some date and it would take around 5-6 hours to complete the work.

    The thing is that I will be taking the car to Murree (Jhika Gali, to be precise) next week.
    Personally I don't feel anything wrong with the clutch (of course the mechanic knows more). So is it compulsory that I should get the work done, or I can make the round trip without any problem. I was thinking about showing the car to a local mechanic and ask him about the condition. It's kind of difficult to spend around 40k on the car at this time. I could get it changed from the local mechanic if there is a major price difference.

    So what should I do?

    a) Man up and take the car to Murree.
    b) Get the work done from Toyota.
    c) Get the work done from the local Market.

    Thanks.

    The best way to check your clutch is to cruise the car at 100km/h say it is in 5th gear then, shift it in 4th and see that rpm and speed both should increase if engine only barks or revs but does not speed then clutch has seen its days.

    Yes, thats why I suggested OP to take the car to Pir Sohawa. If it can climb Pir Sohawa, it can go to Murree as well.

    See the local mechanic .. Ask him to check its clutch plates and pressure plates. if mechanic will say that, no issue of using it for next 10k to 20k km and If you are not facing any problem in climbing then all is well.

    Just on a safe side, ask local mechanic labour charges for all work . Buy stuff from well reputed local shop and go to 3s dealer and pay them only labour charges for replacing things.

    Thanks to everyone for the prompt replies. I will take the car to a mechanic on Saturday and ask him about the plate and bearing condition. Clutch gets pressed easily without applying any extra force, the gears are shifting smoothly and no burning smell is coming.

    Here is a video of downshift from 5th to 4th gear at 100kmph speed.

    Cost from toyota would be as quoted.. as I got my corollas changed around 100k last year and back then it cost me 30k.

    From outside it maybe cost half but there is no guarantee for that... this is why I decided toyota.

    From the video you posted, the clutch is behaving totally perfect. Koi masla nahe. Get it replaced from a well known reputed person from outside, max cost will be 15k including eveything. There is simply NO ROCKET science involved in clutch replacement.

    Waise logon ne baaten banai hoi hain. Get it inspected first for the current condition. If the mechanic says (a reliable person he must be) its okay, enjoy it. It will let you know when it is about to give up, I have had an experience of 240 thousand kilometers with this car.

    I'm going to skip the replacing part for the time being. Going to Murree tomorrow, IA. To be on the safe side I will take the Lower Topa - Muzaffarabad Road instead of Musiari Link Road.

    Thanks to everyone for their replies and opinions.
