  1. Hi guys. Just an update on my Sachs Sintered clutch. almost on 1000 miles with it now and it has settled down like Marshy said. Still was getting some judder from take off and also in reverse. made 2 small adjustments today and it’s actually made it feel like the stock clutch again if not better! the first adjustment was the clutch pedal stopper which gets rid of the dead space past the biting point. Meaning I only have to come off the clutch slightly to be at the bite. however, I was still finding it hard to use in stop start traffic with the pedal still feeling heavy. So I removed the clutch pedal spring and I’m happy to say it’s a pleasure to drive again. really happy with the set up and now the clutch feels solid. Can really give it some and it feel unbreakable! I also had the clutch delay valve removed a few weeks back by the way!
  2. Ahh that would be me then as I have never had a performance clutch just stock. I only upgraded as mine went on 25000 miles and was warned the standard clutch is not “man enough” for the Golf R power and talk. so I will continue to run it around and see how we go. thank you very much for your feedback it was most helpful thank you

  4. Thank you so much. Made me feel a lot better. I used the original flywheel mainly because of cost really. so maybe the mechanics that diagnosed it as being fitted faulty just haven’t come across these clutches in particular? It’s quite a fierce judder at times in first and especially reverse and was quite concerning as never came across this before. so would you suggest carry on running around as normal and these problems should subsided? many thanks mate
  5. Hi guys. recently had sintered Sachs clutch fitted and was told the juddering in first and reverse would ease up as it bedded in. I’m now at 500 miles on this clutch and it’s still the same. Had the clutch delay valve removed tonight to see if this helps and the 2 mechanics there said when they road tested it they could tell it wasn’t fitted right. They said the pressure plate has been fitted incorrectly and now it’s warped and causing uneven wear which is giving me the judder. They are saying i need to replace it ASAP. Even told me not to continue driving it! It also stinks of burning clutch after the judders in first and reverse. can anyone offer their thoughts on this as I have seen some posts saying it’s normal to judder and others saying they have no judder on there’s! thanks guys
