    S3 clutch questions

    anyone got any? any pics of an A3 clutch by comparison would be great also.
    when changing an S3 clutch what parts do you normally change with it (slave cylinder, release bearings etc)?

    cheers

    You need to change the clutch itself and the slave cylinder, which contains the release bearings. You may also need to change the flywheel but you won't be able to tell that until you've got the clutch off.

    225 sounds more than big enough to me for a compact transverse engined car.

    Hi I have a further question or two to add. I take it the clutch on an early S3 (99) is a standard unit and not dual mass clutch. am I correct?
    The other question is what about the flywheel is the fly a dual mass unit, i hear they can fail and it is this that i am worried about. Can anybody tell me what kind of flywheel I have on an early S3, standard or dual mass? If it's dual I fear I will need one due to the noise coming from that area. If it is dual - any idea where I can get one cheap??
    Cheers

    Yeah im sure it is, just search by part number to be sure.

    Worth giving them a call just to be 100%, but it is listed for the S3 and TT.
