    Common Clutch Problems
    What to listen out for to identify if you have a
    clutch problem. Identify a clutch issue early and potentially save your self the cost of a replacement clutch.



    Buying Clutch Parts
    A clutch replacement generally requires that ALL the major clutch parts are replaced, which is why they come in a Clutch Kit (see above). Kit component parts are listed in the Exedy parts list.

    performance, sports and OEM clutches to help you determine which clutch is suited to your vehicle and the most typical use of it.

    Fitting Your Clutch Kit
    Only install your new clutch if you are confident that you know what you're doing. Once a clutch has been installed it cannot be returned or refunded.

    See our help page on installation, to help you get the basics right.



    What's Involved in a Clutch Replacement
    Why is replacing a clutch considered a major mechanical repair?



    Correct Alignment of the New Clutch

    Alignment of the new clutch is crucial to smooth operation and even wear of the clutch parts.

    Use the alignment dowel pins to properly locate the cover assembly to the flywheel. Without these pins severe vibration and engine damage can result. The alignment dowel pins should always be replaced if they are damaged in any way, broke, or missing from the flywheel.



    Clutch Warranty
    All Exedy parts are warrantied for 20,000kms or 12months, whichever comes first, and are dependent upon a manufacturer inspection. Parts that are incorrectly fitted will not be covered by warranty.

    The flywheel MUST be machined, or replaced, when fitting a new clutch to avoid the warranty being void.



    Flywheels
    The flywheel is a separate, yet important element of the clutch system. Read more about flywheels, including high performance and dual mass flywheels, in our Clutch Parts section.
