Default CSC Symptoms but Stealership said clutch went.. scammed?

So i brought my 09 370Z in with the symptoms of a failed CSC. Shifted perfectly, just lost pressure one day. Could still shift just a low engagement point, 20% maybe? They bled the system, said there was just alot of air in it, they test drove it and said it was good to go. I went to pick it up the next day, paid $230 and while waiting they came around and said they couldnt get it into gear. Well they "didnt get around to it" the next day, so the following day they call me and tell me my "clutch spring" is bad and id need to pay $1600 to have them change the clutch and flywheel. WHAT? Am i being scammed or what? Thanks!

Posted in CSC thread also but i figured I'd start a new thread
too as its also a specific clutch/stealership issue. Needed a quick reply since im trying to get my car fixed and want opinions. It's been a week now ��

Around 55k. Shifted perfectly with NO SYMPTOMS WHATSOEVER of anything being wrong with the clutch before.

I'm assuming. Got it around 2 years ago with around 40k on it. I just can't see needing a new clutch all of a sudden when it was perfect before.

Thats what i told them. I also made it clear i work on my own cars usually but with the heat and not wanting to drop a trans under my car on jackstands, i figured i'd let them take care of it lol figured it help with not getting scammed. Thanks for the quick replies!

Usually how it goes bro. Are they installing a new clutch?

I told them not to do anything until i figure this **** out. Called corporate and filed a complaint hoping it gets me somewhere. Supposed to hear back from them before the end of today. But yeah, i plan on putting a z1 or zspeed external CSC on after i get it back from them. I feel like with all the **** i look up on Z's, i'd have come by this before lol first time hearing about it unfortunately. Wish i knew before i let them have it.

Iirc, the Z1 version has to be adjusted. The ZSpeed 1 does not. I've got about 5k miles on my ZSpeed and it's been perfect. My OEM 1 went right at 11k.

I'm a little iffy about putting another internal in considering youd have to drop the tranny anytime something went wrong with it. The less internal parts the better imo. But well see.. i do like the idea of not having to adjust every 10k miles but from what i hear, its relatively painless.
