Flywheel/driveplate - removal inspection and refitting

Note: New flywheel/driveplate securing bolts must be used on refitting.

1 Refer to Chapter 2, Part A, noting the following points.

2 If the engine is in the car, refer to Chapter 6 when removing and refitting the clutch.

3 There is no need to make alignment marks between the flywheel/driveplate and the end of the crankshaft, as the securing bolt holes are offset, so the flywheel/driveplate can only be fitted to the crankshaft in one position.

4 The flywheel/driveplate securing bolts must be renewed when refitting, and the new bolts are supplied ready-coated with threadlocking compound (see illustration).
