Hi there! I am a semi-mechanically inclined woman with a '97 S-10. It
started sporadically making an awful grinding noise when the clutch is
fully engaged and I've determined that it is in all likelihood a bad
throw-out bearing. I was thinking about replacing it myself... but it's
rather involved - taking off all the cross-members, the exhaust... dropping
the tranny... but I'm kinda broke and so I might *have* to give it a try.
Can anyone give me a guestimate of what it might cost to have a shop do it
for me? I'll take it in and get an estimate but mechanics have a tendency
to take the "Don't-Worry-Your-Pretty-Head" approach to women, so I'd like
to go armed with some clue...
That will probably run around 400 bucks US. I feel that if you are pulling the tranny you might as well check the clutch as well.
Which is the best way to drink beer. :wink2:
