    DIY Clutch Replacement

    Anyone changed their own DMF, Clutch and CSC with a Xtreme Outback Heavy Duty? Impossible to do at home? Tips Tricks?



    It would seem that my OEM clutch has gone again after 30000kms and 4yrs since VW replaced it all under warranty. Yet to take it back to VW but I am confident on the outcome.



    Symptoms include pulsation clutch pedal, the dreaded DMF rattle and shuddering when taking of in 1st.



    Suggestions?

    What mods do you have, Ed?

    Too much torque will cause the DMF to not release when it's supposed to, which is where the shudder comes in.

    Unless you have a hoist and gearbox jack at home, I wouldn't try it DIY, the box is too heavy to remove and get back in with no ground clearance. You'd need to be on serious jack stands to get enough clearance too

    Thanks drew

    Mods i have tune and 265 70 17 tyres and it's been happening on and off for the last year. It has been particularly bad this last week.

    Shudder only happens when taking of in first low revs. Clutch pedal pulsates when first taking up the slack and can be felt in the brake pedal also.

    It's pretty much the same as before tune when the OEM was replaced under warranty.

    Do you find that the shudder is between 1400-1800 rpm?

    I never had the rattle, just the shudder, check your centre bearing as well

    Thanks drew, I have read that it could also be an issue from other pages and blogs. It was never touched by VW during the warranty work and I would be looking to do all that I can get done while the box is off the back of the engine.

    Does the centre bearing have a part number or diagram?
