Question about Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

I have a 99 vw beetle tdi alh diesel engine, manual transmission. I am replacing my original dual mass flywheel with a single mass flywheel. The new bolts that came with the single mass flywheel/clutch kit have a coating, probably locktight??? What torque wrench setting do I use on the new bolts to bolt the flywheel to the crankshaft, I don't know if these new bolts are stretch bolts or not, the supplier of the new single mass flywheel couldn't tell me if they were stretch type bolts or not and I didn't get installation instructions with the new single mass flywheel clutch kit. vw says to tighten the original dual mass flywheel bolts to 44 ft lbs and then another 90 degrees of turn.

SOURCE: Torque spec for flywheel bolt: Isuzu 2.5 diesel engine

normally 110 nueton metres. use nut lock and once you have torqued you will feel if you have to tighten it a bit more.

SOURCE: 89 toyota v-6 head bolts

If these are the instructions of the head bolt manufacturer then this is correct. These are torque to yield bolts and require these 90 degree turns to stretch the bolts to the desired length. This causes a spring tension and will keep your head gasket from leaking.

SOURCE: for tightening head bolts on my car it says to

Because, by the time you twist that bolt to let's say, 65ft.lbs, it could snap.

The manufacturer of that bolt knows that if the bolt is torqued, (Stretched) to a certain torque value, and is turned a certain amount of degrees, the proper torque value will be reached, and still stay within the guidelines of the tensile strength of the bolt.

Torque is set to Bolt Stretch. How far the bolt will stretch in a given torque value, and not exceed it's tensile strength. The threads are stretched over to one side a little also, and this causes the bolt to be locked into position. They can only be 'tweaked' over to one side so many times, then they will fail.

Also the bolts have a certain tensile strength, and can only be stretched so far, and So may times.
MANY, manufacturers plainly state to not reuse a head bolt of this nature. Reasoning, is that the bolt has been stretched, and stretching it again may cause failure of the bolt.

Plus, every time the engine reaches the operating temperature, it stretches the bolts, then the bolts contract once the engine has cooled off.
[Everything you always didn't want to know, huh?]

I had the check engine light come up. It was the Mass airflow sensor. I changed it with a new one from Advanced Auto. They reset the computer and a day later the engine light came back on. Same code Mass...


it can make a difference with the units.
i have just changed the same sensor on a skoda diesel.
there were 2 units listed as being correct for the engine. one works, one doesn't.
always make sure you have the correct unit for the right engine.

VW beetle manual to automatic conversion-- possible?


Forget it. The automatic has different electronic components like transmission modules .sensors, ECM and cooling systems. Flywheel motor mounts and supports and sub-frame parts are different also. All of this would require a complete different engine and body harness and switches. Look for one with an automatic in it. try www.internetautoguide.com

no, it shouldnt have any looseness to it and dual mass flywheels are VERY expensive to replace, BUT yes it can be converted to a solid flywheel, check out autozone.com part number MU1989 or advanceautoparts.com part number 798, that should get you on the right path to curing your problems, i welded the two independantly turning discs of my dual mass flywheel together but i wouldnt recommend anyone doing that without the proper equipment to do so (i.e. precision lathes, cast iron welding rods, etc)

The best thing to do is to take it to a transmission shop and ask them. They will be able to tell you if it is bad. This is the cheapest way to find out if it is bad and you can ask them how to tell for future knowledge.

Was any work just done to this car? Timing belt? It is rare that these pumps go bad but I have seen a few shell out. If you are not familiar with the ALH diesel engine I would not try to replace it. You should take it to a shop that specializes in VW's.

Replacing oil pan


not that hard,just the 4 bolts at the flywheel end can be painfull,there is a cut out in the flywheel to make it easier you will have to turn the engine over by hand to find them,use the proper vw sealant or you will have oil leaks,it aint cheap but its a lot cheaper than doing it again.......
