My son backed up with the emergency brake on. Noticed it and released it. He drove a 1/2 mile down the road and it wasn't shifting correctly. He drove back and parked.
His friend got in, put the truck in reverse, backed out a ways, but was making a weird noise. He is saying that the emergency brake caused the clutch to 'burn'. Friend had truck towed ($250) to mechanic and clutch does need to be replaced ($800).
With truck being a 1993 (180k+ miles), original clutch, what is a fair price should we pay toward repairs? Since my son was driving are we required to pay full $1050? Or is there a deduction due to truck's age?
We talked with clutch mechanic and he said that it wouldn't of caused that damage unless the clutch was already damaged.
Thanks for your help!!
