Clutch alignment tool

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I need to do the clutch and flywheel on my pre lci 525d and wondered if anyone can recommend a clutch alignment tool as it's a self aligning clutch?

I think you mean self adjusting not aligning, for initial installation of a new pre-set pressure plate you really don't need anything more than the centre guide (or whatever you have to hand that will do the job, I've used all manner of things from extensions with insulation tape to sockets and threaded bolts and nuts)


Just go careful and wind the pressure plate screws in a quarter turn or so going around in a star pattern as you would when torquing anything up to ensure the plate gets drawn on evenly.


loads of videos on youtube covering it.
