Which clutch ?
#1
Hiya all...

 Does it matter whether the clutch fitted is different to the clutch removed ? I am just asking because I want to replace the clutch in the van I have just bought from the Borg n Beck that has been fitted to the proper LUK or Valeo or whatever it should be and a decent brand.. I have been reading that Borg n Beck have gone down hill over the last 5- 10 years or so and the bite point on the clutch pedal is close to the floor..
 I was told the clutch was replaced because the thrust bearing was noisy, The van is a 2005 1.9d with 60k on the clock..

 Is there a difference between LIK, Valeo or any other ? I have fitted a QnH to my 'Lingo and the clutch was so aggressive the car was undrivable so I had to remove it and fit a LUK which is a massive improvement..

Basically are LUK and Valeo interchangeable ?

Luke or Valeo are both original quality & both just as good as each other. Sachs is sometimes also found as original equipment, particularly when a dual mass flywheel is present.
It would be unfair to say other brands are no good, but these are the only 3 I will fit in our workshop.
