I have my 1996 Mustang GT in the shop right now for the following:
Lower a/c line replacement
Lower ball joints
Bushings
Struts
Shocks
The cost of this came out to $890 which to me is a pretty good price.
Now apparently the shop had not remembered the part where I told them the main reason why its in there and thats because of a bad clutch.
I just recently had them replace the throw out bearing and the flywheel and now I believe the clutch has gone out.
So on top of the $890 bill I got how much am I looking at for a clutch job?

If you received a written estimate, check to see what work was to be done for the quoted price.

If you didn't get a written estimate, you may be in for something of a hassle.

For the price you paid, they should have replaced the clutch as well.

Sounds like the shop owner may be related to someone in your Mustang club.

In any case, they are either greedy or stupid, possibly both.

They replaced the throw out bearing and the flywheel but didn't do the clutch? Who does such a stupid thing? You have to remove the clutch and pressure plate to get to the flywheel. If what you're saying is true, this shop owes you some free labor because they never should have done the flywheel and bearing without doing the clutch. Sure, you should pay for the parts. But you've already paid for the labor.

This shop may be cheap, but they're not very bright.
