Re: 146Ti Clutch
Hi Emp, not engine out, but gearbox out and engine supported to stop it falling out. A few months ago I was going to change my clutch for the same reason as you but on an exploratory investigation knocked the fuel pump relay wiring (in front of the battery) - you need to remove the relay & battery tray btw- and the immobiliser light lit up and eventually I ended up visiting the main dealer to correct the wiring/code problem. Then I went to a local specialist to get my new clutch fitted, I figured that if there were going to be any other catches then someone else could find them. The job took a full day at the specialists, and they had problems with broken exhaust studs which, of course, they had the facilities to fix.
Some others around here have had success with spraying the r/bearing with silicon, but I'll leave them to comment on that.
