    Default 206 GTI 180 Clutch and Flywheel

    Hi Guys,

    My 180 has had clutch shudder since the day I bought it second hand. Thinking about getting a new clutch, but I've been quoted $1700 for the clutch + potentially another $1700 for the flywheel. This seems insanely expensive to me, but all my experience has been with jap rice rockets.

    Are these the sorts of prices I should be expecting in Peugeot land? The clutch I can see, the flywheel price seems pretty exe.

    Also where are the fuel senders in these things? Under the back seat or something?

    Why are you replacing the flywheel?

    I bought a Sachs clutch from Europe for around 620 euros, shipped to Australia. Has never shuddered since. My clutch gets a beating at motorkhana days fairly regularly. Part number is 3000.951.288-S

    I don't want to. They are suggesting it might require a new flywheel. Guess it's possible but you'd never know to you pull the clutch out. Question is, is $1700 on top of a fitted clutch a reasonable price? Seems pretty high to me.

    Speaksgeek thanks for the part number.

    Replaced the clutch in my 180 and it didn't fix the shudder at all. Maybe a different brand as suggested above along with a flywheel machining (?) could solve the problem?

    It would appear that around $1650 is the list price from a dealer for a new flywheel, yes. Part number is 0532N2. The clutch kit should be around the $700 (dealer price).

    When my 180's clutch was replaced with OEM bits it was fine - but it wasn't really shuddering to begin with. Having said that, it was very easy to get up a good shudder by not being careful with it.

    It suffered from the thrust bearing graunch that seems to be common to all GTi180s. The flywheel was machined (for $50) and the whole job was around $1400 from my local dealer in 2006.

    The fuel sender assy is under the driver's side rear seat, under a round, black plastic cover.
    Regards,

    Thanks guys. Can't believe the price on the flywheel.

    Shudder is annoying but the clutch isn't slipping at all so for a potential 3.4k I'll just live with it for the time being.

    You will find a flywheel from OS less than half of your quoted price. In fact, Spoox.co.uk have a lightened flywheel for around $500 USD for the 180 GTI. May not be Peugeot OEM, but might be even better.

    I purchased a GTi 180 from a secondhand dealer yesterday which has recently had the clutch changed...clutch kit is listed on the service invoice at $320. Obviously it hasn't been purchased from a dealer, does the price sound right?

    And yes, there appears to be a slight shudder in 1st only.

    Sweet little car, I'm hoping for a few good years of fun out of it!

    Yes, the dealer price is what it is.

    The clutch kit by Valeo from the usual suspects (EAI, French Connection, etc.) should be close to what you have on your invoice, I would imagine. EAI has one on their eBay site for a little cheaper, but it doesn't include postage.

    Congratulations on the car, BTW. I still miss my 180.

    Cheers Simon! Only outstanding stress is the need for a new timing belt, for which I have a quote of around $600...will need to have it done soon.
