Sachs Clutch Kit 1998 Audi A4 Base Sedan 2.8L V6 DOHC FWD
(fr. ch. #8D-V-180 001)
The dual mass flywheel is installed in basically the same manner as a conventional flywheel. Before installation, insure the mounting flange on the crank- shaft is clean, and free of nicks, burrs, and anything that would prevent improper mounting. Take care to reinstall the flywheel correctly, as they are designed to be mounted only one way. If improperly installed, an imbalance and vibration will result during vehicle operation. Apply a hydraulic thread sealant to the threads of the mounting bolts. This is critical so as to keep crankcase oil from contaminating the clutch and flywheel. Always refer to the manufacturer’s specifications for specific installation guidelines, and torque specifications for correct installation.
Dual mass flywheels are designed to operate under proper conditions. If the vehicle is running poorly, is overloaded or abused the service life of the dual mass flywheel will be considerably shortened. Signs of abuse and overloading are damage to the damper springs and nylon spring seats in the flywheel, overheating and discoloration of the friction surface, and evidence of metal or materials coming out of the flywheel. Any of these signs are not a defect in materials or workmanship and will NOT be eligible for any type of warranty consideration.

Today, the service life of individual clutch components is almost identical. The SACHS
clutch kit takes this into account by providing all relevant components that are required
for clutch replacement, namely clutch pressure plate, clutch disk, and release bearing.
The kit's scope of supply includes a special grease for assembly. It guarantees perfect
functioning after the replacement. With the SACHS clutch kit, clutch replacements can be
performed safely, effectively, and swiftly.
Even the highest-quality and most durable clutch is subject to operational wear and tear.
This is where the XTend clutch pressure plate made by SACHS comes in: It provides
automatic wear compensation. How it works: The XTend clutch pressure plate separates
facing wear from the movement of the diaphragm spring. The compensation mechanism
constantly registers the reduction in facing thickness and reliably compensates this
distance by turning an adjusting ring. This ensures a constant balance of forces and
extends the service life because the facings can be subjected to more wear. The XTend
design provides an additional advantage: In case of operational wear, the axial
installation space required for the clutch system is reduced thanks to the application of
