Replacement clutch choice (brand)?

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have scanned the DIY article and I think this should be a reasonable project, so.... on my 2.7l Boxster.

What kind of kit? Assuming the regular components, pressure plate, disc and release bearing.


ie. CLUTCH COVER 986 116 028 04, CLUTCH DISC 986 116 014 08 (Sachs) and


OR are there other choices?

Feedback and experiences are welcome!

Thanks, Al

I think that's done by the dual-mass flywheel.

I think that you are right, from what was described to me there is a rubber membrane sandwiched between the 2 metal plates that make up the flywheel (dual-mass), this essentually acts as a shock dampener between the engine and the transmission.

This is why the flywheel is generally replaced is worn or damaged versus machining the friction surface (machining may heat up and compromise the bond between the 2 halves).

This may also account for the 'different' feel that these clutch systems exhibit. I noticed this as soon as I drove one for the first time, almost vague feeling.

It would be interesting to see an exploded view of the clutch system and and cutaway of the dual-mass flywheel itself.

Anybody know what these are worth to replace on a MY03?
