This is my first post ever and have spent the last 2 hours scouring the site for some help.
I am in need of advice concerning the replacement of a clutch.
I have not found any help thus far, if you could help by posting a link to the page or offering a solution I would be very grateful.
I drive a '52 plate 1.8 SRi XE - MK4 G, F17 Gearbox.
I am pretty savvy with changing a clutch however have never done one on this particular car and have a few questions.
1. If anyone can point me in the direction of a haynes manual type pic of the clutch this would help.
2. Does the Gearbox housing have to come off before attempting to remove the clutch.
3. I need to know if I need a 'locking key' to hold the clutch plates in place... or can I get away with a screwdriver or 2 to do the job.
4. Has anyone ever done this and found that the procedure for dismantling/ remounting is different to a 'standard' clutch. i.e. anything in particular out of the ordinary, that wouldn't come with a complete clutch kit.
Many thanks in advance.
