    Car - 57 Vauxhall Vectra 1.9 CDTI.

    Preparing to replace clutch as displaying symptoms such as vibrating clutch pedal, rattling e.yt.c., common on these cars for clutches.

    Somebody sold me a clutch kit said it is brand new. That the car it was for was written off so was not fitted. He said ti was for a 1.9 CDTI for the f 40 gearbox. I also have same engine and gearbox.

    When I looked at the kit after unwrapping it ( was not in original box, was taped up when given to me ) I notice the clutch components were LUK but Flywheel was Sachs.

    Anyway I found what looked to be the same flywheel on the internet and on checking online it showed not compatible despite being for 1.9 CDTI and F40 gearbox, but I found another that also looks the same and says it is compatible.

    then I realized one is for the 16 V engine and the other for a 8 Valve engine.



    Is there any way for me to check the fitting is correct ?



    thanks

    I have hardly posted much about this car. in fact It's just passed it's MOT and only costed £50 to put through on little things. been a good runner but clutches are wear and tear, however once replaced I can rest assure It shall not want doing again during my ownership

    he told me it was all brand new, but why would the clutch kit be a different brand than the flywheel, unless the person who bought the parts bought them separate ?

    ALso if the flywheel doesn't fit the gearbox would it fit if I change the gearbox ?

    No. Not even remotely the same.

    You may not need to replace the flywheel in any case. With regards to fitment, you really need some advice from people who know the Vauxhall engines, look for an owners' forum.
