    I was on my way home from a 2 hour drive when suddenly my clutch decides it is time to be done. The previous owner of this car (2002 325xi) installed the Valeo Single Mass Flywheel conversion kit in it. My question now is do I have to get specifically a Valeo clutch exactly like that or can I...

    Hi, I have a faulty flywheel and clutch slips at 1st gear high revs. I just recently noticed that when at neutral the revs tend to jump a little bit. Could that be because of a faulty clutch and flywheel? FL, 320D, manual

    04 zhp 6spd, 247km As far as symptoms go, no irregular noises on startup or shutoff, and no wierd feel in the clutch pedal. Engagement point is definitely higher since it has started to slip. Based on what I have read online this seems to just be a worn-out clutch, but want to see what you...

    I just purchased myself a 2002 325xi with a lightweight swap and new front suspension and it is very different than my auto 325i haha.

    I'm due for a clutch replacement and want to know if the Sachs + JB combo is good for a street putter, SMG, M3?. I'll put in a new OE fork lever, spring clip, throw out bearing and brass pivot pin as well. Other recommendations appreciated like ACT? They look ok but are more expensive... The...

    Hi everybody! I have to replace the clutch and most likely the flywheel as well in my 2003 325xi wagon.

    Hi All I have a 2005 330ci with a UUC lightweight Flywheel and clutch. The kit only has about 55,000KM on it and it's starting to slip pretty bad the last couple of weeks. I don't have a supercharger or Turbo on the car and i only track it couple times a year, so there is no way that it could...

    Has anyone had experience with lightweight flywheels in the m3? Been reading about them and apparently they chatter like all hell. Only reason I ask Is because I'm changing out the clutch and don't know if I should stick with the dual mass fly wheel or change to single mass or lightweight...

    Following the excellent DIY articles here and at pelicanparts.com, I'm halfway through a clutch replacement... but I've run into a dilemma. My 1999 328i sedan has just over 250,000 miles, so when the clutch pedal started vibrating and the clutch started shuddering, I wasn't surprised. Happy...
