- sticking of the driven disk hub on the splineways of the clutch shaft;

- breakage of plates coupling the pressure plate with the inclosure;

- breakage of plates coupling the thrust flange with the inclosure;

- pressure plate misalignment due to unbending of the retainers;

- unacceptable wear or gumming up of the friction pads of the driven disk;

- skellering of the driven disk;

- damage to the surface of the pressure plate;

- breakage or loss of elasticity of the disc damper springs;

- breakage of diaphragm compression spring.

 

Working sequence for replacing the clutch

First remove the gearbox. Remove the clutch release sleeve together with the bearing from the guide bush of the transmission drive gear shaft. Unscrew the bolts that secure the clutch cover to the flywheel, and remove the clutch gear. In doing so, it is prohibited to lift it by the thrust flange of the compression spring. Installation of the clutch is to be carried out in reverse order. While doing so it is necessary to:

- locate the driven disc with the protruding portion of the hub facing the gear box;

- align the driven disc to center with the mandrel (included) imitating the slotted end of the drive shaft of the gearbox and tighten the bolts securing the clutch cover to the flywheel;

- clean the slotted end of the drive shaft of the gearbox and the guide bush with a solvent, lubricate them with a thin layer of grease;

- fit the clutch release sleeve together with the bearing onto the guide bush and fit the gearbox in place.
