      Anytime you do a clutch job it is wise to inspect and replace as needed the various seals in the area you are working in. Reason being, is that a worn seal is easy to replace when the trans is out. If you don't replace the seal, you may experience a failure sometime after, in which case you will have the added expense of the labor to remove the trans.
      For piece of mind and cheap insurance, people replace these items at this time.

      The item on the left is the rear main seal, late model VWs are using a teflon sean which is now integrated into the aluminum housing. Earlier VWs had a similar aluminum housing, but the seal was the replaceable affordable part. VW has since made obsolete the older style and forcing customers to pay for the late model higher priced part.
      We can offer our customers the option of one piece teflon, or the 3 piece older style (spring seal).

      The 3 piece uses a fiber gasket, to mate to the block, the seal is replaceable.
      In your Bentley manual, you'll read about the different seals and why VW chose them.
      Keep in mind that a teflon seal needs time to set-up after installation, whereas the older spring seal does not. The choice is your and that is why we offer both.

      Now the part on the right is the input shaft seal on the trans.

      First I would like to thank Fourseasons for providing great information!! I was going to order a clutch through you guys but I'm about to go with Urotuning because they have the Spec Stage 2+ I decided I want to go with. I'm going to match it with the 20lb Steel Spec single mass Flywheel. Also, they seem to provide good support like you guys and mentioned they could get this kit sent out very soon.

      I did a lot of research and this seems like the best clutch for my needs. I'm at about 280hp now and might potentially do a bottom end build and eventually hit 350hp since my turbo is good for those #'s.

      I also bought a new hydraulic line from USPmotorsports for 6 speed transmissions.

      While looking around for other parts I should refresh I noticed this post. I'm going to go ahead and order this to go with my new Spec clutch.


      I take it this 02M Install Kit will work fine with my Spec Stage 2+ correct? I would like to confirm prior to ordering. It sounds like it would be a good idea to replace this. Thanks for any additional info!

      Hello Fourseasons,

      Can you guys help me with a new setup? I bought this kit back in May of 2017 and broke the clutch in exactly as specified by Spec. I only have about 14k miles on this setup. Unfortunately, I'm having some major issues. It's been happening for a while with the car violently jerking when downshifting to 2nd and other gears but not as bad as 2nd if I'm not rev-matching exact. Sometimes it's a very rough up shifts if I don't let the clutch out slow and rev match a little. It seems like this started shortly after the break-in period but has gotten worse.

      I had the shops owner where I've had lots of work done and is a reputable shop take a look. He thinks something failed with the kit. Possibly the Throw out Bearing/Slave Cylinder or maybe something to do with the clutch and/or flywheel?

      I'm not exactly sure but I'm worried since sometimes when I first start the car it's difficult to disengage from 1st and reverse. When I first start it and shift into first and/or 2nd I don't even have to release the clutch all the way before it catches. That is, it catches too soon. This goes away after a few shifts so that's good. But, I'm worried I might damage my transmission or possibly something else if I don't get this looked into!

      So, I'm going to have a shop drop the transmission soon but I was hoping to source a new kit and was considering going with a Southbend or Clutchmasters. I want a setup that's good for at least 375+ whp. I'm currently pushing about 281 whp based on a dyno I did a while back.

      Can you let me know what clutch might work with this flywheel?

      This is the setup I bought and was hoping I can possibly use the Flywheel since I'm guessing it's likely the Throw out Bearing/Slave Cylinder is probably the culprit...

      SV873H Spec Stage 2+ Clutch | Mk4 1.8T | VR6 w/ 6-Speed 1
      NOTE: This kit replaces the OE SAC clutch used with the stock dual mass flywheel. This clutch kit MUST be used with a single mass style flywheel only. Cannot be used with stock flywheel.
      SV81S Spec Lightweight Steel Flywheel - 240mm for Mk4 1.8T 6-Speed 1

      I would greatly appreciate any input or suggestions!!

      I'm currently looking at a few different setups.

      Sorry the clutch question was overlooked. Did you ever figure it out?
