Clutches
« on: 22:34, Fri 02 September 2011 »
Just a quick question, are the Valeo clutches that are for the R5 "Uprated" or are they just a replacement.

While searching I found a website selling clutches with this description below :lol:

Quote,
RENAULT R5 Clutch Kit
This is a new, original Valeo clutch kit to replace the clutch of a RENAULT Super 5 1.4 GT Turbo (jul 1984 - aug 1990) and comes with a 2 year unlimited mileage warranty.

Packaging
This clutch kit has unique packaging that secures the clutch kit under a film and halts the components from moving in the box. This packaging ensures the protection of the components when sending.

Easy Installation
This Clutch Kit can usually be fitted very quickly at home. However if you are uncomfortable installing this clutch kit yourself you can take it to your nearest MOT, service or Renault garage who will be able to fit it for you for an extra fee.


Typical Savings:

Self Installation: Save 350 (80% less)
Garage Installation: Save 100 (54% less)

Surely thats a little misleading!!!

Yes, if you put the engine in the boot with the clutch, it will work a lot better!
