We remove the basket and the driven clutch disc to replace them when they fail, as well as when replacing the flywheel and rear crankshaft oil seal

We perform the work on an observation ditch or an overpass.

We remove the gearbox (see the article - Removal and installation of the manual transmission Renault Duster)

Removing Renault Duster clutch discs

With the head on 11, we turn off the six bolts securing the basket to the flywheel.

We keep the flywheel from turning by inserting a powerful screwdriver or mounting blade between its teeth and resting it on the pin of the gearbox attachment.

First, we turn the bolts off evenly, no more than one turn per pass, so as not to deform the diaphragm spring.

As soon as the action of the diaphragm spring weakens, the bolts are turned off arbitrarily.

When unscrewing the last bolt, we support the basket and the driven clutch disc.

Removing Renault Duster clutch discs

We remove the clutch basket and the slave disk.

Install the slave disk and the trash in reverse order.

Removing Renault Duster clutch discs

When installing the slave disk, we orient its protruding part to the clutch basket.

We position the clutch basket on the flywheel so that the flywheel pins fit into the corresponding holes of the basket.

Insert the centering mandrel into the slots of the driven disc and insert the mandrel shank into the hole of the crankshaft flange.

The mandrel can be carved from any material in size.

We bait and evenly tighten the opposite bolts of fastening the casing of the drive disc to the flywheel.

Clutch fastener tightening torques:

- bolt/nut for fixing the clutch housing to the engine 44 Nm;

- bolt fastening the clutch housing to the flywheel – 20 Nm;

- the attachment bot of the clutch working cylinder to the gearbox is 25 Nm.

We remove the centering mandrel of the driven disc and install the gearbox.

We install all the parts in reverse order and pump the clutch hydraulic drive.
