Volkswagen Tiguan Service and Repair Manual: Clutch, Removing and Installing

Clutch, Removing and Installing, with Dual Mass Flywheel, Sachs

Special tools and workshop equipment required

  • Flywheel Retainer -3067-
  • Alignment Tool - Clutch Plate -T10097-
  • Torque Wrench 1331 5-50Nm -VAG1331-
  • Grease for Clutch Disc Shaft Splines
  • Grease allocation. Refer to the Parts Catalog.
  • On engines which have a crankshaft with a smaller diameter, or engines with a needle bearing in the crankshaft.

Removing

The transmission is removed.

  • Insert the Flywheel Retainer -3067- to loosen the bolts.

When Removing, Loosen the Bolts as Follows so That the Clutch Pressure Plate Does Not Distort (Causing Shuddering on Acceleration):

  • Loosen the bolt diagonally in small steps.

When loosening, the stop -2- and the bolt -1- must loosen up together.

  • If the stop does not loosen: push the bolt toward the dual mass flywheel.
  • Remove the pressure plate and the clutch plate.

Volswagen Tiguan. A30-0140

Installing

Install in the reverse order of removal while noting the following:

Note

  • Allocate clutch pressure plate and clutch plate according to the engine code. Refer to the Parts Catalog.
  • Clean the input shaft splines and (on used clutch plates) the hub splines. Remove any corrosion and then apply a very thin coat of Lubricant on the splines. Then move the clutch plate back and forth on the input shaft until the hub moves freely on the shaft. Remove any excess grease.
  • The clutch pressure plates are corrosion-protected and greased. With the exception of the friction surface on the clutch plate, do not clean the clutch pressure plate. This will shorten the service life of the clutch considerably.
  • The friction surfaces on the clutch pressure plate and on the flywheel must be cleaned thoroughly (degreased).
  • To reduce odor caused by a burnt clutch, thoroughly clean the transmission housing around the clutch as well as the engine on the transmission side.
  • Only use compressed air to clean the dual mass flywheel.
  • The clutch plate linings must sit completely on the flywheel and on the clutch pressure plate friction surface. Install the bolts.
  • Tighten the bolts diagonally in small steps so as to not damage the centering holes in the pressure plate and the centering pins on the flywheel.
  • Make sure the alignment sleeves for centering the engine/transmission are installed inside the cylinder block. Install them if necessary.
  • If the alignment sleeves are missing, it will be difficult to shift, there will be clutch problems and the transmission may make noises (loose rattling).

Clutch Plate Installed Position

  • "Transmission side" label and the spring cage face the transmission.

Check the Ends of the Diaphragm Spring

  • Wear up to half the thickness of the diaphragm spring -arrows- is permitted.

    • The clutch pressure plates must be replaced if the pull-spring is bent or broken off -arrow B-.

Volswagen Tiguan. A30-10219

Checking the Spring Connections and Rivet Connections

  • Check the spring connections between the pressure plate and the cover for cracks and make sure the rivet connections are tight.
  • Replace the pressure plate if the spring connections are damaged or if the rivet connections -arrows- are loose.

Continuation for All

When Installing, Tighten Bolts as Follows so Pressure Plate Does Not Distort (Causing Shuddering on Acceleration):

  • Make sure the stop pin (position sensor) -arrow- moves easily.
  • Install the pressure plate on the centering pins.
  • Install all bolts evenly, by hand, until the bolt heads touch the pressure plate.
  • Tighten the bolt diagonally in small steps.

When doing this, the stop pin -arrow- must lift off from the pressure plate.

  • Install the transmission.
