Inside Line: Schaeffler

It is notoriously difficult to identify the correct parts for this vehicle. To help with identifying them the vehicle’s version and motor number are required and these can be found on the chassis (VIN) plate.

When the old clutch components are removed from the gearbox carry out a visual comparison of the old clutch and Concentric Slave Cylinder (CSC) against the new. Don’t be tempted to ignore the CSC replacement when changing the clutch, remember it’s a bearing and the last thing you and your customer want is to be removing the gearbox again. Some variants are also fitted with a Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF). This should be checked when the clutch is being changed for wear.
