will antifreeze damage my new clutch?

Hi, just fitted clutch assembly and coolant with antifreeze has just run out and down over the new clutch after just fitting it to the flywheel.

Will it be ok to wipe worst off and continue without removing it again or is it likely to do any damage to the friction plate if its on that?

Cheers, Jase

Doubt it'll act as a lubricant,so air blow dry and the rest should evaporate. Diffciult one to answer really, as I've not experienced that.:

Not having a lot of luck are you? Can't say I've ever tried it but I would think it would be okay if you take it off and dry it properly (and the flywheel). The problem with having moisture in the clutch assembly is that when left for a short time it can 'weld' itself to the flywheel.
