I haven't done a clutch job yet, but i plan on taking this one apart and learning all i can from it. Bases on the research i've done so far, make sure the engine and tranny are supported from up top or below. Also make sure you have some sort of tool to counter hold the flywheel if you are swapping them. I picked up an mk4 with the dual mass that is slipping in 5th gear, so i'm putting a Luk solid flywheel on. Just thought i'd mention that.....I have TB tools for BEW. Could use some help with a clutch problem myself if you know how to re/re.
Anthony, long time, how is the sidekick going?. That would be a great help with the tools, any chance you have any thing for a clutch flywheel counter hold. I've seen guys cutting off a piece of flywheel and putting a bolt through it and it works great to hold it in place.Steve, you're welcome to borrow my timing tool kit.
shoot me a text and we'll set something up.
Counter hold tool, I had a spare piece of steel, and drilled a hole in it, and used a bolt to hold it in place as it jammed the flywheel. Once you are under there it's not hard to figure out.
There's a slot in the flywheel/PP that allows easier access to those two bolts, rotate until you find it.... That and a wobble bit should is all you should need.Anyways, that oil pan on the tranny side with those 2 hidden 10mm bolts are a pain in the butt. I still have to put the oil pan back on. Have to head into work soon. So hopefully that might help anyone else.
I wish i would have seen the hockey puck tip sooner, oh well....I'm back on track now.
I saw the diy that chitty did. I rotated while i was under there with the led light. I didn't see any gap. I changed the DMF flywheel to a solid Valeo kit. I'm thinking that might be why???. I will have another look maybe tonight or in the morning.There's a slot in the flywheel/PP that allows easier access to those two bolts, rotate until you find it....
