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.

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

  1. Remove the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  2. Insert a pilot shaft or an old input shaft into the center of the clutch disc, pressure plate, and the pilot bearing in the crankshaft.
  3. With the pilot tool supporting the clutch disc, loosen the pressure plate bolts gradually and in a crisscross pattern.
  4. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc.
  5. Clean the transmission and clutch housing. Clean the flywheel surface with a non-oil based solvent. Wash your hands before installing or handling the clutch assembly parts. Hold the clutch disc by the center hub only.

Before assembly, slide the clutch disc up and down on the transmission input shaft to check for any binding. Remove any rough spots with crocus cloth and then lightly coat the shaft with Lubriplate.
  1. To remove the throwout bearing assembly: Remove the return clip and take out the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing.
  2. To replace the throwout arm use a / 16 in. punch, knock out the throwout shaft spring pin and remove the shaft, springs, and the center lever.
  3. Do not immerse the throwout bearing in solvent; it is permanently lubricated. Blow and wipe it clean. Check the bearing for wear, deterioration, or burning. Replace the bearing if there is any question about its condition.
  4. Check the shafts, lever, and springs for wear and defects. Replace them if necessary.
  5. If you hadn't planned on replacing the clutch disc, examine it for the following before reusing it. Loose rivets. Burned facing. Oil or grease on the facing. Less than 0.3mm left between the rivet head and the top of the facing.
  6. Check the pressure plate and replace it if any of the following conditions exist: Scored or excessively worn. Bent or distorted diaphragm spring. Loose rivets.
  7. Insert the control lever into the clutch housing. Install the two return springs and the throwout shaft.
  8. Lock the shift lever to the shaft with the spring pin.
  9. Fill the shaft oil seal with multipurpose grease.
  10. Install the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing. Install the return clip.
  11. Grease the carrier groove and inner surface.
  12. Lightly grease the clutch disc splines.

The clutch is installed with the larger boss facing the transmission.
  1. Support the clutch disc and pressure plate with the pilot tool.
  2. Turn the pressure plate so that its balance mark aligns with the notch in the flywheel.
  3. Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel bolts head-tight. Using a torque wrench and, working in a crisscross pattern, tighten the bolts to 11-15 ft. lbs.
  4. Install the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  5. Adjust the clutch as described in the following information.

I have removed the gearbox from my 2000 MB 100 Van. I found the clutch plate has disintergrated. I noticed the Flywheel clutch pressure face looks like it will come off. Is there more to this clutch system...


flywheel bolted to engine, clutch disk and pressure plate, also has a throw out bearing that should be replaced at the same time.
you don't need to replace the flywheel unless it is cracked though you should have it turned down at a machine shop.

I HAVE A 1999 SATURN SL PUT NEW CLUTCH IN AND A NEW PREBLEED CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER AND SLAVE CYLINDER,HAVE GOOD CLUTCH PRESSURE WHEN PUSHING DOWN PEDAL BUT CLUTCH IS NOT ENGAGING. ANY IDEAS?


Are you certain you or your mechanic installed the clutch plate facing the right direction? It is usually marked on one side to tell you which way to face it. I have personally done this and had the same issue, if the hub portion of the plate is rubbing on the flywheel it won't kick out or in all the way, and if left it can cause damage to the flywheel.

Good luck.

Need to know how to replace clutch on my 2004 kia


Hi there,

I hope below steps can help...

1. Remove the transaxle.
2. If the pressure plate will be reused, paint or scribe the alignment marks on the pressure plate and flywheel for assembly reference.


Do not allow oil or grease to contaminate the clutch disc facing Even a trace of oil or grease may cause clutch grabbingor slipping. Handle the disc by its edges and do not touch the facing.
Loosen the pressure plate bolts one turn at a time to release the pressure plate spring tension evenly. A failure to release the tension evenly could cause distortion of the pressure plate.


3. Remove the pressure plate bolts, the pressure plate, and the clutch disc. While loosening the bolts, use SST to prevent turning of the flywheel.

2003 Tiburon 6 spd clutch replacement now tranny won't respond


Possibility, you may have intalled the clutch disk backwards.... if so, the disk hub is torqued against the crankshaft hub preventing engagement of the clutch. 2003 TIBUORN DUAL MASS FLYWHEEL AND CLUTCH DISC ASSEMBLY INSTALLATION PROCEDURE DESCRIPTION: The 2003 MY 2.7L Tiburon vehicle equipped with the 6-speed manual transaxle employs a dual mass flywheel system. The 2003 Tiburon Shop Manual does not show the clutch disc assembly with the dual mass flywheel. This bulletin provides information about how to assemble these components. NOTE Although it is possible to assemble the clutch disc with either side facing the flywheel surface, only the assembly of these two parts shown in this bulletin is correct.
PARTS ASSEMBLY:
  1. Attach the dual mass flywheel to the engine crankshaft assembly.
  2. Identify the clutch disc flange side and the collar side as shown. 0240025a.gif
  3. Install the collar side of the clutch disc on the dual mass flywheel surface so that the flange side is facing the pressure plate side as shown. 0240025b.gif
  4. Attach the pressure plate to the dual mass flywheel and complete assembly of the remaining components per the Shop Manual procedures. 0240025c.gif
