Right we've all seen a clutch change so i'll cut the jibber with this, Just dropped all the hubs and driveshafts off both sides.
[attachment=15564]
Then ripped all the induction track out and battery tray and drained the box.
[attachment=15565]
then with the aid of a tool my farther in-law made me i popped the gear linkages off.
[attachment=15566]
Next I jacked the engine slightly on the sump to prevent it dropping and then unbolted the box and gearbox mount and lowered with a winch under the car.
[attachment=15567]
[attachment=15568]
[attachment=15569]
with the box off I could now inspect the clutch and what a shit storm. Luckily the flywheel was perfect but the clutch Was down to the rivets on the pressure plate side.
[attachment=15570]
[attachment=15571]
went to fit the new clutch and realised i'd been sold an xud one -.- with no chance of getting the conversion parts to run it this soon my only choice is to try and get a sach's oem clutch from a berlingo which are apparentley known to hold the torque. Failing this I can get a Luk clutch from euro car parts today and hoping to mix It with the ceramic paddle friction plate.
[attachment=15572]
the ceramic friction plate is slightly thicker then an oem clutch so should get slightly more clamping force. The diameter is partially smaller on the friction plate but all for paddles still make full contact and beings its a ceramic clutch and not organic the friction should be there in theory (and theory alone atm) to hold the torque

Ended up fitting the cg friction plate with a Luk pressure plate (bought a complete 3 piece clutch for £65 from gsf). Then it was just a matter of fitting the clutch and bunging everything back together.

Couldnt help but gun it after a few miles of fitting the clutch, i'd forgotten what a good clutch felt like Big Grin

Well havnt done any work latley as i"ve no longer got access to the tools and workshop I used to use. Since the clutch has been in the cars ran fine apart from The gear box mount has started knocking about and the rear beams bushes are dying to Sad

Took the car to the slam media event in peterborough today Tongue tried entering the limbo for a laugh and ended up with ten people inside and two on the bonnet to slam it more lmao.

Love this dude, went to full stage 2 pretty quickly. I'm going to start preparing the car for the FMIC, was the boost controller you fitted an absolute must on a HDi? I'll need to source one of those as well if that's the case Sad

Worst problem I've got is my lower crossmember / rad support is bent to buggery after the previous owner had a little prang. I can't see how I'm going to hammer it back straight again, so I'm considering getting a new bit welded in Sad
Disclaimer: The above is not to be taken to heart and is probably a joke, grow up you big girl.

Looks good. Makes me wish my estate had lasted a bit longer! I bought a full FMIC kit and somehow I have lost it all! D:

My old pugs cross member was bent, ended up welding in a new one because I couldn't jack it back for shit lol.
as for an MBC im having problems with mine as I keep melting the boost pipes through, seems it doesn't matter where I locate them it just keeps happening.
as for stage 2 I had a lot of bits kicking around and kept buying parts when I saw them cheap as I knew I would need them later, had this car nearly 8 months now.

How on earth do you just lose an FMIC :O looking at the workshop I used to be in I could maybe understand losing a clamp lol

Just had to sort abit of injector chuff and may have stumbled across somthing i need to look up Smile
[attachment=16328]
[attachment=16329]
Any way back to what i was saying, while i had the injector out of the ex's vectra sri diesel that just looks like a longer version of the pugs, little play later revealed the tips just change over but need to look up spray angle and delivery to see if this could be suitable for hybrid injectors.

Which engine are they out of? If it's the 1.9 jtd/ttid/whatevervauxhallcallit then they could be the good tips. Plane angle is just as important as spray angle, if not more so. There are a few threads about with more info on this, will take some searching, but there's tech specs on various tips in them etc.
