Fixing Clutch

Recommended Posts

Hi guys 

Looking to replace the clutch in a 200tdi asked a few people on the easiest way to repair it, I am wondering if it is best to take out the engine or to drop back the gearbox?

Unless you have a vehicle lift and transmission jacks, it's easier to take the engine out.  It's not a difficult task, should have the engine on the floor in under two hours.

In a Rangie, you can slide the gearbox back and balance it while doing the necessary to the flywheel.

Taking the engine out is only easy if you have an engine crane or similar :) Not to mention the additional cost of antifreeze you inevitably paint the floor with.

I can recommend making up the gearbox to trolley jack mounting shown in the LR manuals. Makes balancing for removal/replacement much easier.

Also a couple of lengths of threaded rod to screw into the rear of the block in lieu of the bellhousing to block bolts. Offer the box up to these & use them to slide them together. Helps alignment & reduces risk of slipping.
