Peugeot 207: SACHS Clutch Driven Plate Orientation

A replacement clutch driven plate is often installed back-to-front; to prevent this, the marking ‘getriebeseite‘ or ‘gearbox side‘ on the driven plate should be noted during mounting. Affected vehicles/parts are usually returned very quickly to the workshop/motor factor, citing noisy operation or clutch disengagement problems.

Indications of incorrect fitting are marks on the flywheel side of the hub splines where they have made contact with the gearbox, or scoring on the torsion damper of the driven plate and the underside of the clutch cover diaphragm springs. The release bearing or CSC may also be severely damaged and fail quickly when it contacts the driven plate hub boss, generating frictional heat. There is the further possibility of damage to the dual-mass flywheel if it makes contact with the driven plate torsion damper.
