The car is 2011.

What I have been told is they need to take the gear box out to confirm the slave cylinder is leaking at a cost of £480.00 as it will take 5 hours if the slave cylinder is gone then the repair bill will be £1362.00

Thanks info
Firstly the whole job to remove and refit the transmission is only 5 hours so I think hey are trying to charge you twice same job
I would find a decent local garage to do this job replacing the slave cylinder and clutch kit more than £600 .
If you need more help with this then please reply.
