Clutch Bracket at Firewall

Post by Juano » Thu Nov 27, 2014 8:23 am

I've serviced my clutch and pressure plate about 4 years ago on my 2003 cit golf, and recently the bracket that's attached to the firewall started pulling away from the firewall. I've been trying to weld it back but its in such a award place :crazy: so it makes it difficult to weld it properly back, any suggestions???

Goldwagen sells a plate that fits onto the firewall.

You have this then

You can swap over to the old style system, remove the bracket (2 no. 10 nuts) & remove the saddlebag locking pin. Then you need to remove the arm from the pedal... I just removed the clutch pedal assembly & took it out.

Get the "long" clutch cable, hook onto pedal, fit bracket & reassemble & bobs your aunties uncle...

Just note the pedal feel will be a little harder with the long cable.
