Before removing the clutch from the vehicle
- Make sure that the clutch has been correctly fitted according to any relevant fitment guidelines, as well as the instructions in the workshop repair manual for the vehicle.
- Check the vehicle thoroughly before removing the clutch in order to ensure that the clutch problem has not resulted from the vehicles faults such as a defective or incorrectly adjusted clutch release mechanism, work driveline mountings or oil leaks.

If reusing the existing flywheel make sure it is refaced (and step machined if applicable) other wise warranty is Void. See warranty terms and conditions.
Make sure clutch hardware/hydraulics work properly. For example (and not limited to) a clutch is installed in a 20 year old vehicle that still has the original master cylinder and slave cylinder with 20 years of wear and debris in the hydraulic system. It is recommended to flush the pipework through. Will original components cope with acting on a higher pressure assembly? Are the Pivot balls/points/pins and arm in perfect condition?
All clutch components not supplied in our kit must be in good working order otherwise damage may occur from incorrect engagement and warranty will be Void. See warranty terms and conditions.
Where clutches are supplied with release bearings these must be installed correctly, if pressing is required you must use the correct tools otherwise damage will occur. If kit is supplied with a CSC (concentric slave cylinder) it will be the OEM part, do not repeatedly squeeze it or press the face of the cylinder in unless it is part of the actual fitting/bleeding process.
Failure to run in or set up properly can result in many faults which include but are not limited to: noisy release bearings, CSC leaks, Broken/damaged linings, excess judder/shudder, disc dragging broken fasteners, damaged covers and warranty may be void.
AS with all motorsport clutch suppliers there are limited warranty conditions for motorsport use. See warranty page.
If reusing the existing flywheel it should be refaced (and re stepped if applicable). Clutch pedals and bearing clearance must be correctly adjusted.
