My mom has a 2010 Camry manual 2.5 with 47k miles and the clutch is slipping, can that be adjusted or does it have to be replaced? Approximately how much can she expect to pay a local mechanic? not the dealership mechanic! Just don’t want her getting ripped off. Thanks a lot.

Didn't know the 2AR-FE came in Manual. If the clutch is slipping my assumption is that you will need a new clutch and have the flywheel resurfaced. Cost = Maybe less than $1000 but I would not know. I suggest getting estimates from your local auto shops.

They were pretty rare. It was only a 2010-2011 option usually on the base model. 6spd iirc.

47K is pretty low....unless it's all city driving and a lot of riding the clutch... could just be worn out.

My 2009 2.4 manual has over 180K on the clutch. It is grabbing higher but not slipping yet. I was quoted 1700+ to replace and that wasn't the dealer so I passed for now. Seems to be a big job. Clutch going at less than 50K?? I got 280K on my 85 Celica and 295 on my 97 Corolla clutches.

Mama's been spinning them wheels!

It might be possible to change the clutch in the vehicle but I would suspect per the FSM that the engine has to come out. Realistically they can probably just get the transmission out and do it but you will get quoted the full hourly price because that is how shops make their money. If you are a repeat customer, then it might be less. Do less, make more, that is how it works out when you get paid flat rate. In addition, they probably over-quoted you because they didn't want to do it....
