I made a new 2018 folder in the gallery section.
Welcome to ad your own albums
The car: 6N2 1.4, 8 valve petrol.
I got my clutch replaced around 3000 miles ago. And over the last few weeks my clutch sounds like this when cold (see example video - you'll need to download).
The one they took out (replaced by the same company) had only done 40 to 50,000 miles so I was suspicious that they should be replacing more than just the clutch kit and guide sleeve on this new job. I could hear ticking noises which got a lot worse when pedal pressed - I assumed it was the release bearing and took it in when it sounded like it was ready to pack up.
The pictures following are from the 40 to 50,000 mile clutch they pulled out and was wondering if this was a normal failure mechanism - the release spring fingers being eaten up. As far as I can tell the bearing itself seems ok but not sure if it should be able to be pulled into three pieces. The guide sleeve is worn and was replaced. The friction surface looks fine (to me) and the clutch was not slipping.
What do you guys think? I know something's failing in this new 3,000 mile clutch and I suspect it's something they didn't replace which is what also killed the 40-50,000 mile clutch in the above photos.
Not sure I understand how the release bearing and sleeve fit together. But if you look at picture 8, the guide sleeve doesn't even touch the release bearing (there's got to be 4 to 5mm all round). Looks like the sleeve is merely there to catch the failing release bearing and stop collateral damage??
Any questions please contact us via the usual means
Jumping straight in..
I need help on what sort of injectors would fit, ive heard that the 130pd injectors fit but not quiet sure on what engine code I should be looking for.
turbo is not a big issue as ive heard the garrett they put on the 1.4tdi BNM was half decent, im only looking in the 100-120 range of BHP.
So, a remap is definiately happening with all of the exhaust being gutted, now would a straight pipe be better than cutting out the inside of the cat? due to pressure loss or something? maybe not enough to even feel a difference but maybe.
just need a little direction as this is the first diesel ive tackled.
thanks in advance 🙂
