You need the right equipment and knowledge to do this job there are a lot of cables wires etc that need to be removed before the gearbox can be loosened and removed.
There are also a lot of special tools required and the job is best done on a ramp or pit to gain access.
Trying to do this on the ground would be difficult and very dangerous also the engine needs to be suspended when the gearbox mounts are removed.
It is impossible to remove the clutch pressure plate, plate and hydraulic bearing on the C4 without removing the gearbox.
Take it to a garage/ clutch specialist.

SOURCE: Renult megane o3-19-DCI Replacing clutch plate

Hi,
look at the clutch plate centre hub. The side which fits to the pressure plate is generally raised further than the side which fits to the flywheel side if you have the old pressure plate and clutch plate, look at the pattern on the clutch plate, it will be emulated on the pressure plate..

Hope that you have had the flywheel 'skimmed' to ensure good contact with the clutch plate. It would be a good thing to also check the spigot or nose bearing / bushing in the flywheel. All should be replaced as a set, pressure plate, spigot bearing,clutch plate, release / throwout bearing and the flywheel skimmed.or replaced if necessary.

Happy motoring.

My clutch has no tension and will not engage now that temp is -2


first check the adjustment on the clutch fork, you may have to shorten the clutch rod because when your clutch wears you actually get less play in your clutch (opposite to what you would expect) but if there is play in the clutch then your problem is that your pressure plate has colapsedthere are 2 styles, 1 has adjustable fingers, your pressure plate has collapsedthe other has a diaphram spring, which ever you have it is a pain, you have to put your truck high on stands, remove the tail shaft. next (and this is very heavy) remove the gearbox, once the gearbox ir removed, remove the pressure plate and clutch plate, next remove the fly wheel for machining, then replace it all with a new clutch assy. using a special aligning tool on the clutch

Car will not go into gear.


Clutch is not disenging and is dragging, thats why it jumps forward, It could be at worst cas a warped fly wheel or the clutch plate de-lamanating or a colapsed re-lease bearing, or the re-lease arm is bent, the fix pull gearbox off car check re-lease bearing and arm and replace bearing, replace clutch presure plate and friction plate and if your funds allow have the fly wheel checked for true, reface the surface if needed, check here for diagrams and parts for your car.

Fiesta started making noises either gearbox or clutch? clunks going in to reverse, shudders driving off in 1st gear


sounds like your clutch is going out, is it hard to put in gear with clutch all the way depressed? could also be the sinkronyzer going out, could be the gears in the transmission also going bad. need to check the fluid in the transmission.

Where is the torque converter and drive plate on 97 eclipse gst manual transmission.. so i may markmatch it before removing the tranny


hi, if you have a manual gearbox then you dont have a torque converter a torque converter is what changes the gears in an automatic gearbox as your is manual all you will have inside your gearbox is a pressure plate a clutch plate and a thrust bearing witch operates the clutch when you press the pedal down.
The only thing you need to line up on a manual box is when you have fitted the new clutch you need to have a tool that holds the clutch plate central so that when you tighten the bolts up on the pressure plate the clutch stays central if you dont do this you wont be able to get the gearbox back onto the engine as the spline from the gearbox wont be able to go through the center of the clutch into the engine.

You can make or use you own tool to hold the clitch dead center as long as its a good fit and about the same size as the spline, so once you have the new clutch in and the pressure plate loosely bolted on you can still move the clutch around behind the pressure plate now right in the center their is a hole in the pressure plate and the clutch plate this is where the tool needs to be put so that the clutch plate remains dead center whilst you tighten the pressure plate up this will then make sure that the spline on the gearbox lines up properly not doing this will make it impossible to get the gearbox on properly.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
