Questions on clutch and flywheel replacement

Recommended Posts

I just bought a flywheel and a clutch kit for my 1999 Carrera 4 (64 000 miles).

The first question I have is that the clutch kit did not come with a allignment tool. I haven't seen them on sale any where, so do I even need one?

When I asked for instructions for replacing a clutch and flywheel I was referred to a RMS seal replacement DIY on C-Speedracing.com. http://www.c-speedracing.com/howto/996rms/rms1.php It is a great DIY with a lot of pictures. They pick the everything apart, but they don't really tell me how to put it back including all the torgue requirements on different bolts on the flywheel and the clutch. Does anybody know of any DIY with all that information?

Thanks for the info. I have a few more questions. Where should I put the tranny jack? Is the weigh pretty even so that I can put it on the middle?

I got an universal clutch centering tool from Napa for $30, so problem got solved. Do I have to use it on both the clutch and the flywheel?

Does the flywheel have to be in a specific position when i replace. Meaning, do I have to mark how the old one was on?

ThanksKristian :huh:

Im sure they can be had somewhere, I cutoff a piece of a broom handle and sanded down alittle. Here are a few more pics on installation of clutch etc. Sorry I did not include the torq specs for flywheel etc but can be found in the manual.
