Hi there

i have a 2003 d22 double cab 88000 miles and i think the clutch has seen better days

the biting point is quite high and quite vauge and the clutch pedal is very stiff.

Has anyone changed a clutch and is it a driveway job or should it be left to a garage?
Is there a ''how to'' on this forum?

Do you usually have to change the flywheel aswell?

And finally could the pedal stiffness be due to slave cylinder failing?

would be gratefull of any help guys

cheers

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.

cheers for the help mate

Definatly considering doing the upgrade!

So far as the clutch change is concerned the flywheel should be absolutly fine then and i dont have to worry about it?

Do you have to remove the gearbox to do the upgrade?

cheers

The bell-housing has to be split from the engine and moved back about 1/2 inch to get access to two sump bolts.

With your mileage and as long as the driven plate is not 'down to the rivets' the flywheel should be fine.
Sliding the box back to get to the 2 rear sump bolts is the hardest part of the upgrade job (inho)definitely something you don't want to do twice, this is why I stuck my nose in re: the engine upgrade.

definatky think im going to do the upgrade at the same time as changing the clutch!

like everyone on here says at least it will give me piece of mind!

Will i have to completly remove the gearbox to fit a new clutch or is there enough room to
if you slide the gearbox back?

cheers for the help

I just paid £130 at Euro Car Parts for an original fitment Exedy, Milner are £134.
LUK don't make them, Borg & Beck quality has 'gone out of the window', Exedy were just about the best.
