    Its sad @KGP; you could write to service email id or take FASC email id and ask Fiat that change of clutch at such low running is recommended. I am afraid its one of those rare cases where clutch has developed issue sooner. In most probablity the issue is with clutch bearing and an outside mechanic could fix it cheaper. Maybe you could take a chance there?

    Just a query: is the clutch slipping as well? I mean, for the same speed, do you need to revv higher than earlier? Before any change of the entire clutch, a simple brake fluid bleeding (including the clutch circuit) and refilling might resolve some of the issues. Such an early replacement, is unnatural if not unprecedented.

    @puntophile, there is no slippage or loss of transmission, just the gear stick gets hard.,

    Sirjee, get a bleeding done, with GOOD DOT4 fluid. Preferably under supervision of someone who knows where corners are cut in the process. You can change the kit anytime...but you might want to try this small thing first.

    Please mention name of service center. Also Fiat rates are regulated for all dealers. Are you sure you were quoted after referring to their online spares system. Do take a quote from another FASC and decide. You may find actual rates much smaller at some places. Do note that dealers tend to quote for flywheel etc. but that is optional in most cases to change and could cost more as you stated.
