Best place to
#1
Wheres the best cheapest place to get a valeo clutch from and im guessing a valeo bearing will be best too?

Or is there anything else better than valeo for the same price?

In some cases, Peugeot. They can do trade scheme where you buy a 'refurb' which is often a new unit, then bring back your old clutch and get part of the money back. Give them a call. I seem to remember Curt did it with his 6 and paid something like half the discounted cost from ECP.

That link just takes you to the website dude. Evidence suggests that LUK and valeo use identical components and may possibly be the same company lol, so on the assumption a new valeo clutch would hold the torque, i'd say yes. Smile

Swear my valeo clutch plate had 'LUK' printed on it as well.. J, a standard valeo will be fine on a limited torque map, I've been running full fat for well over a year now!

Last time i checked you could get a valeo/luk new from ECP for just under £100 with discount, try using HOT30 for 30% off at the mo!

EDIT: for some reason it won't allow me to use that code although they're only £105 retail atm

If you want to go stage 2 just do it properly and drop in a dt/gti setup with a 4 paddle unsprung friction plate.

How much is that setup likely to cost all in Chris? just as a way of comparison to a valeo

If your going paddle I wouldn't bother converting to the GTi/DT set up as you end up loosing the timing hole off the fly wheel for doing the cam belt/locking the engine off.

Either go standard Valeo (cheapest from ECP IIRC) and accept that you'll have to run a limited torque map or pay out for a paddle clutch and enjoy the real power.

As above, if nothing else no-one has proved the dt set up holds any more torque. Sure it should do theoretically, but in general there's a big old gap between theory and reality.

For a dt/GTi setup you're looking at 250ish.
GTi flywheel £20
Pull clutch fork and bracket £20-30
Standard valeo dt/GTi clutch. On eBay for sub £45 if you know what your looking for. And take just the pressure plate from this.
Cg friction plate £135

Or the whole cg setup which is around £220.

Holds the power fine and is still useable daily. Tbh. Do the belt before you change the flywheel and by the time your due to do it again ill guarantee the clutch will need doing again. So just pop the hdi flywheel back on.



Although has anyone tried a 4 paddle unsprung friction plate with a standard hdi cover plate yet?

I got my LUK clutch for £70 from Carparts4less incl. delivery. Fitted by C2K on this forum with me to help slow him down!

With regards to there being 2 different part numbers for seemingly the same clutch, I just picked the higher number, assuming that this is probably the superceding part.
