BMW Clutch Kit – Sachs K70238-01
If your BMW’s clutch has started to slip it will need to be replaced. Some owners will opt to simply replace the clutch disc but we always find it best to replace the entire clutch kit for the best service life and performance. We also recommend replacing the rear main seal.
FCP also recommends inspecting the flywheel for excessive wear. If the flywheel is worn we recommend replacing it at the same time as the clutch kit. This will ensure a long and reliable service life of your BMW’s clutch.
Clutch kits are made up of two main components, the clutch friction disc and the clutch pressure plate. Both of these components transfer torque from the flywheel to the transmission. There are several different types of manual transmission clutches in terms of operation but they all perform the same basic function.
Clutches are a pure wear item. In some cases you may have the option to replace a pressure plate or clutch disc separately but its always best to replace both at the same time along with other component such as the rear main seal, pilot bearing, release bearing, and shifter parts.
