In Reply to: How to: CLUTCH INSTALL basics posted by Paul (at MAximill...) on April 28, 2000 at 11:11:22:

...(I forget the technical term) to hold the flywheel still while you unbolt/reattach the clutch and flywheel, otherwise they rotate. It bolts through one of the starter bolt holes and has a piece that goes into the teeth of the flywheel, locking it in place. VW shops might have one??

Otherwise, great article Paul! Keep up the good suggestions!

: 10. Examine exactly how the clutch is fixed to the engine. You will see that the spring plate (pressure plate) sandwiches the disk to the flywheel. There are (about 6?) 13 mm bolts holding the clutch plate to the flywheel. loosen them slightly in a cross wise pattern to avoid strain on any one area of the assembly. You will want to torque them in a balanced pattern as well when you reinstall the new plate.

: 11. remove pressure plate and disk. The plate has a 4-5 mm locating "dowel" pin - make a note of it for reinstallation.
