Clutch replacement

#1 Beitrag von JMac » 21 Okt 2020, 13:58

I am looking to replace the clutch in our 1981 C2 (WB) which seems to have a 215mm plate. Does anyone know where I can get a new 215mm assembly, or if I can maybe get the 228mm assembly, will this fit? Thank you :D

Hi,
I am sure you will find a replacement clutch. Just feed "035141033JX" to Google and you will see many offers. Some of these are not an exact replacement, so you always need to have a close look to the technical details. Depending on your location I would suggest to buy regional.
Regards,
Joerg

Thanks Joerg, that part number is recognised on a number of sites but all are marked "out of stock", it seems. The only way I see that I can get an assembly is to buy the clutch plate and pressure plate separately , but only in the 228mm diameter. I do not know if I can replace the 215mm one currently on the car with a 228mm one. Any thoughts?

Hi,
no I cannot say if the 228 mm clutch will fit WB engine that is designed for a 215 mm clutch. Maybe you would have to change the flywheel, too. If you have not been able to find an offer I would suggest to contact Mr Andreas Kuhnert in Heusenstamm. He is primarily dealing with parts for older Audis but he has been a long time employee of LuK company, so I assume he will be able to tell you what will fit or what can be unsed as replacement.

Regards,
Joerg

Thank you again Joerg, this is exactly what I needed - as the engineers I have spoken to in the UK do not know if the 228mm unit would fit without other implications. I will contact Andreas today. Best wishes, John.
