Re: D22 Clutch Change
Clutch change is pretty straightforward as a driveway job.
Flywheel is solid, not DMF, I have heard of some (rare) problems with clutch forks.
However are you aware of the 'rod through the side' problem these engine are prone to at (usually) between 60 - 80,000 miles?
I would read up the threads on this problem before going any further, as by removing the gear box to get to the clutch you will have done 80% of the hard graft in upgrading your engine considerably, by changing the big end shells, conrod bolts and upgrading the oil pump to sump seal.
So far NO ugraded engines have self destructed whereas literally hundreds of standard engines have!
Apologies if I am teaching you to suck eggs.
Very first upgraded D22 - 10 years and 72K miles and still going strong!
