What size clutch fits a 2003 gti 1.8t?

I purchased this particular clutch on amazon and it's the only size i can find online but it's not fitting. Material: Organic disc Series: Valeo OE Replacement Condition: New Quantity Sold: Kit Part #: VLE52105601 Fit Note: Canada Or USA Built Vehicle This is other information for the product: VALEO OE REPLACEMENT CLUTCH KIT -- 8.25 in. disc diameter, 0.88 in. input shaft size, 28 spline; Includes clutch disc assembly, pressure plate cover assembly, release bearing, alignment tool, grease pack, and installation guide; Manufactured using components that exceed OE specifications; Offers long life and smooth engagement. And it's the only size I'm finding that's compatible for my gti, but it's not working when I try and put it in.

I am not familiar with Volkswagon products, per se, but the basics are the same. Is your clutch hydraulic? They tend to go without notice. If it is not - there may be adjustment in your system. If there is no smell and you are still able to drive ok - I am not sure what the problem is. If in fact you do need a new "kit" - do not replace just part of the kit since the labour cost of putting in a part latter would outway any advantage at this point. I did this as a teen in one of my vehicles by not replacing the throw out bearing and it failed long before the new clutch was even close to being worn out.

SOURCE: I have fitted new clutch

Hi

It sounds like during installation one of 3 things could have happened.
1) The splines got messed up stabbing the transmission, or
2) the plate got bent itself or
3) the plate is in backwards
Also If you do have leaking on your master cylinder then that will be your problem obviously.
Your master cylinder is designed to compress DOT3 Fluid with one cylinder piston, against another cylinder piston which creates force against a clutch fork that presses your throw out bearing. Your TOB then presses against your clutches pressure plate, the pressure plate releases from the clutch disk which is transferring torque into transmission from your engine. Now you have gears within your transmission that are moving at two different speeds, and a synchronizer within your transmission slips onto teeth to match those two speeds and to lock the gears to a shaft and transfer your torque to an output shaft and then on wards towards your differential gear and thus to your wheels etc.

SO, if your clutch isnt being released enough to allow your synchronizers to lock onto the wanted gear, then its obviously not going to go into gear.
You could try and bleed it one more time but it sounds like the disc is hanging up and not allowing the transmission to spin freely. Either the clutch free play needs adjusting (non-hydraulic clutch) or the pressure plate is not stopping the flywheel and will need replaced. Try adjusting the pushrod between the pedal & master to give you more clutch travel.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

I drive a 2003 VW GTI. Theres a high rev sound after 3rd gear. Sounds like the engine is high reving and gets louder when the car gets faster even when shifting into a higher gear.


It needs rebuilding. The upper gear(s) are not locking in, so your likely wearing out your clutch when you drive fast. Get it rebuilt.

The battery was replaced and now the radio in my 2003 gti does not work


When you disconnect/replace a car battery, your radio anti-theft security system will be triggered: consult your car user manual on how to reset the anti-theft security for your particular radio/audio system: you will need to enter a specific 'security code' that should have been provided when your car or car audio system was bought.

Problems with gear box


Hi

If the clutch feels ok and isn't biting right at the bottom or right at the top then it sounds like its time for a recon or 2nd hand gearbox to be fitted.

I recently fitted a 2nd gearbox to a seat ibiza GTi which actually has the 2.0 Golf engine fitted to it and it wasn't too bad at all, but it is adviseable to fit a clutch kit whilst the box is off.

Very best regards
