    Help please!!! Clutch spanner needed

    Is there anyone near Rugby/Coventry with a spanner to remove the clutch please? Or is there somewhere I can buy one from? I'm trying to undo the flywheel through the plug in the bell housing. I can't weld and have no way of making a tool - thanks

    According to Evilution you can lower the engine slightly & remove the starter motor, that then gives you access to use a standard socket & also allows you to torque up the bolts correctly on refitting.
    Never done it myself, so good luck.

    The 17mm one in this set is perfect for the job.

    Either get a double flexible socket wrench set or remove oil sump.

    15.95 on ebay with free UK postage: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BERGEN-Pro...3D351675144915

    You only need the 17 mm one but the others may become handy too.

    Note it is best to have 12 point sockets which this set is. Gives you more freedom and larger angle turn.

    It may be much easier to just remove the oil sump? I think this is what I did when I changed my clutch.

    The 17 mm double flexible socket wrench works fine but you need to improvise if you wish to torque up the bolts with a torque wrench. I fit an 16 mm Allen socket in 16 mm end of the flexible wrench. Then attach the torque wrench 90 degrees to the flexible wrench.

    As already stated, clutch removal is a whole lot easier by first removing sump which may need to come off anyway either to fit one with a drain or simply to clean it up and apply protective paint.
