    S3 8P Release bearing

    If it's leaking I will replace mine, but I wandered if there was an Uprated version anywhere out there to save failure

    Now in your S3 you probably have release bearing with plastic casing which is good
    but that's what you need now buddy! No more plastic

    I wish i'd took some photos of the old one when i fitted the clutch and new release bearing
    to my car! The old one was all plastic housing and the new one is made from
    sime kind of a magnesium casing i believe. Yes the part number is the same but you can still
    get the ****ty plastic one
