Clutch replacement
« on: March 23, 2019, 21:41:04 PM »
Hi,
I have a 97 Calibra se8, 2L 16v Ecotec. Engine & gearbox about to be changed (to same engine same box), having trouble finding which clutch to get. On the website it gives me 2 options for clutch kits, 1st with a cover plate diameter of 215mm, 2nd with diameter of 216mm, I have since contacted another parts company who only get 1 option, a cover plate diameter of 220mm. Wondered if anyone on here knows which size, or how to measure it (entire cover plate, bolt hole to bolt hole etc), or if the difference of 1mm would matter.

Hope to get somewhere on here, since even contacting Vauxhall was of no help.

Thanks
Katana

Hi Katana

I contacted my local Vauxhall/ dealer who I have used over the years.........I asked them about your clutch problem.  They told me that there is indeed 2 available for your car as you have mentioned.

They said one is not available and their database doesn't give size diameter.........he said if you can supply the chassis number off the log book he will be able to narrow down the correct one for your car.
