The return rate for rebuilt clutches and other parts lies somewhere around 2 percent, which is similar to the return rate for new parts, according to AA1Car. Quality rebuilt parts are typically built to original equipment manufacturer specifications and come backed with a warranty.
Rebuilt parts can cost up to 40 percent less than new parts but are as good as new if rebuilt by a quality rebuilder, reports AA1Car. Rebuilt parts sometimes get an unfair reputation due to people damaging them during installation. Clutches are particularly vulnerable as they can be damaged if the transmission weight is not supported and allowed to hang off the input shaft.
