325e/528e ETA clutch!!

Ok, now my clutch slips a lot (damn drifting in the snow), so I guess I should replace it. Anyone have either a used clutch disc, or a clutch kit with some meat on it?? Or will any m20 clutch work??

Thanks

PM Punnzells he may have one - also you'll need to determine if you have a single mass vs dual mass flywheel - the clutches are different.

Hmmm, and how do I find this out without pulling the tranny?? I guess I'll take the VIN to the dealership and ask them....I want to get my beater back on the road!!!!

Do you know if the ETA clutchs are the same as the other m20's?? (provided they're single or dual mass).

The flywheel dosen't matter. It only matters if it is a 2.5L or a 2.7L......he has the same 2.7L eta as a 325e.

Ummm no; the single mass clutch and pressure plate is way different that the dual mass one.

I guess it's safe to assume that my car has a dual mass flywheel (judging by that link). Single mass clutches have sprung hubs and dual mass don't, right?? At least that is how it was with my 328 clutch, it wasn't sprung, let my M5 clutch was. So I need a clutch from 5/86 and newer......maybe I'll just buy the disc and reuse the pressure plate. The car is a junker anyway, I just need to get myself to school and work, and I don't feel like driving my car around everywhere

You could get away with using the pressure plate unless the inner fingers are bent / worn out.

The one thing that I always find needs changing (and is cheap) is the pivot pin on the arm.

Any issues/secrets I should keep in mind when I'm dropping the tranny?? I did the flywheel and clutch on my 328 last year, so I can't see it being all that different.

Pretty similar actually - the biggest pain is to remove the starter - and at least on an e30 the top 2 tranny bolts. I think *not sure* that the only thing that you have to be careful with on an eta is that there's a reference pin / sensor off the flywheel that you don't want to accidentally break.
