    possible symptoms:
    bad fuel consumption
    poor acceleration ( you will feel as if the clutch is slightly pressed even when u release the pedal to the fullest)
    life of a clutch plate vary according to your driving style & routes... the more u need to press the clutch pedal, the more quickly it will worn out.

    i changed the clutch of my car last year, see the link below:
    Cultus VXR 2000 Clutch Changed
    rates would be different today as its more than a year now.. i dont know about specific clutch brand names, sorry. its however good to put a new one rather than the kabli.. things u might need to change are clutch & pressure plates, bearings.. in most cases i dont think its necessary to fiddle with the flywheel, or getting lathe.. depends on the condition of the mechanical parts inside..

    i got mine done from Raees Autos near 13d-2 Gulshan-e-Iqbal..

    In the F.B area there is Quality Autos on water pump. You'll get FCC clutch plate & pressure plate (both come in a single packet) FOR 4850/-. And Exedy/Daikin for 4000/-, and Aisin for 3800/-. Prices as of last week. All three brands are Japanese. I've good experience with Exedy and not good experience with Aisin. FCC I've never used before so can't tell, but people told me these are the ones that come factory-fitted from Pak Suzuki.

    You'll have to get the throw bearing separately and will cost 350-500/-. Flywheel may need retooling or not, depends upon condition. The labour cost will be 1200-2200/- depending on the mechanic. Time taken will be around 6 hours (considering mechanic will be having other customers also).

    Don't get kabli or repaired. They have very short life plus when they get hot clutch fade occurs.

    Other possible failure indications in addition to those @usmanansari told are:

    clutch burning smell.
    clutch plate vibration or slipping feeling.

    Another way to figure out if the clutch needs replacement is to ask for the mechanic's opinion.

    valuable information given by ahsanzs.. i would however suggest to get it inspected by a mechanic just to make sure if the clutch really needs to be changed, if yes then you should go & buy the parts yourself and then get it installed by the mechanic. Don't however trust any mechanic blindly, im giving you the number of Raees Autos, you can have his opinion regarding the issue.

    In F.B.Area, Super Way Autos is a more reliable place. Quality Autos does not give good deals now... Akber Autos is fine though.
    And go for FCC Clutch and Pressure Plates set. I installed in my Cultus a couple of months back and it cost me around 4700 something without the bearing

    It will have no extraordinary impact except leaving you stranded somewhere. One time will come when all the organic matter on the clutch disc will be abraded off and then pressing or releasing the clutch will be same i.e. no movement. This is more prone to occur under load e.g. with family and luggage weight. If this occurs then flywheel resurfacing will be a must. Some people I know use their clutch plate to the very last and think they're very clever and savings-oriented.

    Usually once your clutch starts giving you warning there is only 2000-9000 km life left in it.

    Take note it is not clutch plates [plural]. Cars having a dry clutch have a single clutch plate. Usually motorcycles (but some cars too) have a wet clutch and it is a set of multiple discs called clutch pack.
