Request the old and new part numbers, a google search of the part numbers should provide an answer.
I called a smartcenter parts dept. they said no new/improved clutch actuator is available...............Request the old and new part numbers, a google search of the part numbers should provide an answer.
Isn't replacing the clutch actuator literally a 2 bolt job? So about 50 $ in labor at mostThe willingness of some people to straight up lie is astounding. But remember, there are labor costs and usually a parts markup. I'd expect around $500-$600 installed to be fair.
You got a link for this claim?Also, all MB including SMART have a computer algorithm call Adaptive Learning, which learns your driving style (rough like a Teenager or gentle like an Old Fart like me) and automatically adjust the transmission shifting to your driving style. After changing or adjusting clutch adjuster, make sure to reset Adaptive Learning, using ignition key and gas pedal DIY, see YouTube.
A large amount of worn out items are sent to China as scrap. They will sort them and rebuild anything they can that has more value then melting it down.Just curious folks keep talking about "China rebuild"?
Where in the heck are they getting the cores to rebuild them?
My first 08 actuator lasted 11 years so not sure how much better or even if the "new" number is better or will last longer?
I would respectfully have to disagree.A large amount of worn out items are sent to China as scrap. They will sort them and rebuild anything they can that has more value then melting it down.
You have to remember labor is really cheap there and there is a almost unlimited supply of humans they can pick from for the work. They also don’t have to worry about environmental laws like North America or Europe has.
