    Has anyone changed these yet ...
    I'd like to replace mine but they don't seem to want to come out easily...
    Any tips ??

    On the '03 they simply slipped out. I changed them easily with a standard set procured locally. The '07 is a different arrangement. I didn't have the need to change them at the time so i didn't bother to find out how.
    When you work it out, let us know.

    For now I've just put it all back together.... Maybe mid winter I'll have another go at it.
    I've also noticed that two of my clutch springs are rather loose with another on the way . It's an 08 clutch so I'm guessing it'll last a few more miles .
    One thought occurred to me is why on earth can't these springs be embedded in a rubber coating or even a block to stop the metal to metal .
    I know that may possibly throw up more problems with bits migrating but hey it'd nice and quiet for a while lol.... 😉

    Their out !

    Just thought I'd mention the method of removal.
    Gently heat up the clutch basket and then use a suitably sized drift and a press or lump hammer (gently but firmly) to knock or press them out .
    Remember the position of them as they do not go tightly together in the centre .
    They will both push out completely from either side .
    Now to order a new set .
    It's nice to know they are German made .

    Did you put it in an oven?
    What temperature?

    Hi Engenia,
    No oven involved just a bit of hot air from a heat gun on low setting . Not sure how hot but I could still hold it bare hand.

    New bearings fitted no more axial movement 🙂
    Peace of mind now knowing all is better than before . A bit less rattle too Bonus!! Lol

    Do you want an excuse ?

    Question for you, which springs have you got in the clutch basket early ones had 5 coil springs and two closing ends ( 6 off them obviously) on the interchange they had 4 4 coil springs heavier duty and two 5 coils opposite each other .. the later ones had 6 heavier duty 4 coils .

    Now that will get you thinking .
    I can hear the spanners whirling now .

    haha... i`m not falling for that one , Yet.

    i did look at the springs however never counted the coils (my bad !) when i was there wondering what bits i could throw away to save weight, and two of the springs had green paint two others blue and two others were just steel colour.
    The basket has the date stamp of 2008 so im guessing the latest version.
    i did see that two of the springs are loose in there little home roaming free to give that glorious rattle we have all come to love..

    i will be keeping check of this from time to time and buy in a new clutch basket and associated parts if ever needed as i hardly do any miles at all each year
