If I get e spares from stockist, would u know any recommended workshop to replace the start clutch, its caskets and all seals? Or is it better to have Kah Motor replace it?

since this may end up being a costly affair.

i wud say the judgment call is yours.

goto KM, ask for a quote 1st.

then u can contact outside workshop. I give u one.. elite motor @ sin ming autocare Mr lau 97463035. i hope others contribute a few more workshop or checkout at cityzen.sg

from the look of it, best guess is for u to go back to KM to change the entire CVT liao, taking it apart juz to replace a damage component doesn't justify the cost.

Out of warranty... Now accessing whether to fix or to change.. If changing CVTF solve e current issue, would like to drive for another year before changing. If need to fix it at high cost will consider changing ride then...

Thanks to all for ur kind inputs. I had recently change to HMMF fluid and the problem sort of resolved. Now still accessing if there are vibration when moving off from stationary. Hopefully no need to replace start clutch or look for recon CVT gear box....
