peugeot 406 110 hdi gearbox clutch + flywheel remove + refit

Postby adam03031980 » Fri Feb 23, 2007 10:27 pm

I am looking at changing my clutch and flywheel as sometimes it slips when i accelerate at 2000rpm only intermittenly though and not all the time i have done clutches and gearboxes a=on older non hydraulic clutch cars but am wondering how long a job and how difficult it would be. Also valeo do a clutch and flywheel conversion kit so as to get rid of Dual Mass Flywheel and have a standard one anybody know what these are like

Yes first i heard of it was from a garage that took a look at it then i called my brother who runs a motor factors company and he told me valeo do conversion kits full clutch kits and flywheel for £150 whether that was a deal for me i dont know but i hear the dmf's are a b*tch "however" when i spoke to a guy at peugeot he said he was only aware of them being a problem on the 307 hdi's christ knows what the difference is will try and find the link had it once till one of my daughters replaced it with the damn disney channel bleeding women

my clutch is rathe frustrating it only slips now and again when i give it a little at 2000rpm i have done about 12000 miles like it even did 2000 mies at xmas in scotland and it didnt slip once up hills and so on my dad used to b a diesel mechanic donkeys years ago but he isnt sure about all these new dmf's he did say there could be condensation in the hydraulics but i asm yet to try and bleed it but he was just clutching at straws bloody car is doing my nit ive just had to replace the crank shaft pulley dont get me wrong i have had 820 miles on one tank so economy is great but males me think i should have got a crappy little petrol car and bought a bike to go to work on

Awwww man, I have the same issues with my HDi.

Rattly/squeeky DMF and sliping sometimes in fact it hasn't slipped now for weeks for some reason.

It will be a £600.00 job and I was looking at an LUK clutch and DMF (about 280.00) and labour (about 320.00) it may work out a bit less if the labour works out well.

I am convinced though now that the occasional slipping is also caused by oil seeping from the crank seal and contaminating the clutch aswell as the actual 'wear'. In this case, when you dismantle everything you will be faced with fitting a new seal too (not sure if a costly job or not?).

I sometimes regret buying my Diesel, I have got the clutch/DMF/crank seal AND a rear engine mount that has torn through it's rubbers and it's a big mount and looks expensive because the drive shaft goes through it aswell, all this lot has wiped out any savings I get from the fuel economy (which also has not worked out like I thought) :|

IF I fix all that stuff I would have to keep the car and get some use out of it, if things were any different I would change the car tomorrow and bid it a fond fairwell :|

welton the rear main crankshaft seal is dead easy once you have the dmf out, any decent garage wouldnt even charge extra labour to fit it, and the seal would be arround £7
and your rear engine mount wont cost that much to fix, as you can take the shaft out and the mount and press the bush out and fit a new one, i think that would only be worth 2 hours labour at the most, and the bush is only about £40
mines completley gone too, but when i last had the car in at work, i cut up some old rad hoses, and prised them into the gaps between the bush, works a treat, although now the top ones gone :|

I bet if most of us bothered to get a look underneath and up at the rear mount then at least 8 out of 10would be torn through.

I think the car would drive much smoother with a new bush as the engine won't be moving back and forth so much.

Cheers for the info James I feel a bit better about it all now :cheesy:

thats what im here for :D
if you dont mind getting your hands dirty i would do the clutch dmf, crank seal and mount yourself, you'll save yourself so much money, its an easy job to do just time consuming, just allow for time not using the car
