    Exclamation Defender 2.8i Clutch... Help please!

    Hi Folks,

    I bought a Landy 2.81 about 6 months ago and I love it more than any other car I have ever owned!

    My clutch went a couple of weeks ago and my mechanic just told me that it needs replacing and the clutch kits for this model are killer expensive around 7000

    Can anyone help me with info on where I can source one directly

    Any help would be very very appreciated

    Thanks All!!!

    Jim

    Hi Jim.

    Have a look here: http://4x4community.co.za/forum/showthread.php?t=156406

    I got my clutch kit from these guys: http://www.lrpshop.com/za/ui/

    I think it was about R5000.00.

    Cheers.
    Jacque.

    Thanks Jelo and Jacque!

    I picked one up at LR service centre in Southfield. They gave me a discount so 5000 including VAT. It worked out close to 1000 cheaper than anywhere else I spoke to.

    Thanks again!

    What is the mileage on your 2.8?
    If the clutch had a shudder and the mileage is high (200k +) then I would suggest you replace the dual mass flywheel as well.
