Fitting a Hydraulic Clutch Instead Of Cable Clutch
#1
Ok so I'm looking for some help and advice and hopefully someone has done this already .....

I've toyed before now with fitting an hydraulic clutch control system instead of a cable controlled clutch on my DW8 2005 1.9D van ( MK2 ).

However I am due next week to undergo spinal surgery and the need for a lighter clutch for the future has become more pressing ( just like that on my back nerves).

I won't be allowed to drive for a few months so I'll have time to get it sorted if possible - the " boy " will be press ganged into service as a grease monkey.

So has anyone done this and or can it be done ... advice welcomed.

I'd rather not replace the vehicle as after purchase I've done / spent on everything that would need doing for the future in advance since I normally keep my vehicles for many years.

never seen a hydraulic clutch on a dw8, always cable, you can convert the pedal end with a pedal box from a 1.6hdi, as for the other end it would need to be bespoke and would outweigh the cost of a 1.6hdi van for a hydraulic clutch, they aren't that much lighter than your dw8, they have the same travel as a cable clutch pedal and the same travel at the gearbox end so they are similar in feel after the initial new clutch lightness has worn off to be honest

I was reading this thread earlier about building a hydraulic clutch for a 306, would be a similar set-up I guess.

Doesn't look worth the effort personally but interesting project.
