Which side of the clutch plate faces the crankshaft side?


hold the clutch plate against the flywheel and try to rotate
if it is wrong the hub section will hit on the flywheel bolt heads

practice dictates that the raised section ( bit with the springs in the housing of the clutch plate) faces the gear box so that there is clearance to those springs to the flywheel bolt heads
besides that if you have a new clutch plate if will have " this side to the flywheel" printed on it

Im looking for a tyre pressure sensor for my renault laguna 2033 plate but not sure what im looking for or how to fit one thank you


1. The tyre has to be removed to fit the tyre valve/ sensor unit to the wheel. . Tyre dealers will do this for you when you supply the sensor.

2. Any renault dealer parts department can sell you a new sensor.

3. The new sensor has to be programmed to the car's tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

3. Here is a list of information about the Renault Laguna tyre pressure sensors to assist you. The 2nd link below shows a picture of the tyre valve/sensor unit that fits to your wheel.

Clutch installation


Genewrally speaking you need to remove the gear box. UNdo the bolts holding the clutch pressure plate on the flywheel. . Do this by undoing each bolt a few turns at a time. Remove pressure plate and clutch plate. Clean flywheel face. Remove bearing at center of crankshaft and replace as it will be dry and probably rusty. Fit new clutch plate taking care to observe the correct way the plate is fitted. Normally the raised hub section faces away from the flywheel. THis can be checked by pressing the plate against the flywheel and turning it and it it hits the crank bolts you have it in the wrong way round. Fit the pressure plate over the plate and insert the bolts. Some units have 2 or 4 bolts longer than the restand this is to allow the plate to be depressed a fraction to allow the other bolts to screw in. Place a clutch aligning tool through the clutch plate and into the bearing. Evenly retension the pressure plate bolts going alternately across the cover a bit at a time . When retensioned remove the clutch aligning tool. Remove and replace the throw out bearing on the clutch release forks. Ensure that the clutch kit is all new as mixing parts will not work. Refit the gear box. Basically that is the proceedure but to be exact get the manual for your vehicle to cover any extra steps needed for that vehicle.

Engine off shifts engine on grinds when putting in gear


The clutch plate can only be fitted one way. If you noticed one side of the plate has a raised section that contains springs. The other side is flat. Puting the plate the wrong way round allows the raised section to hit the heads of the flywheel bolts and this is causing the clutch to spin even though you have the foot on the clutch. Make sure you have properly bled the air from the clutch system. Mostly there is a notice printed on the clutch plate which reads like flywheel side or this side away from flywheel

Renult megane o3-19-DCI Replacing clutch plate dont know which side to presure 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.

Hi im changing my clutch on my renault 1600cc 16v megane scenic t reg but it looks trickey do i have to remove the engine or drop the hole front end down to get the gear box out the way to change the...


It is a fiddle but drop the l/h side of the subframe down, pull the shafts, jack the engine a bit and seperate the box and you can just unbolt the cover plate, slide it back and lift out the centre plate, then the cover plate comes out, you have to align the new ones by feeling the alignment in the 3 gaps round the edge, fiddly but save a heap of time

Renault megane clutch


Unsure about Reanult-specific app here, but usually the higher-deck faces the pressure plate. The springs on the disc are higher on one side. I'm sorry I don't know about Renault exactly.
