Evening all - a bit of advice please. I have a 9-5 Vector 2.3t with a TD04HL-15T and one of Karl's fine Stage 1 remaps.
I suspect the clutch isn't long for this world. Would a stock Aero clutch fit my car? I know it would handle the power and torque but I'm struggling to work out if it would physically fit.

Thanks for your collective help.

Alex.

Yes, flywheels are the same for all the 9-5 B2x5's. My advice would be to get your flywheel machined flat again before you fit the new clutch.

Thanks Rich, I thought that was the case but couldn't find anything in print to confirm it. I hadn't considered resurfacing the flywheel but that's a good call.
Malcolm Miles Motor Engineers will be changing it for me, I'm sure the guys there will advise the same if it's scored at all.

Thanks

Alex.

My 2.0t (as it was) got an Aero clutch fitted to it so they are all interchangeable.

Thanks for the confirmation guys. My clutch is OK at the moment just as long as I don't boot it in 4th or 5th so it gives me a bit of time to shop around for the best deal.

Once they start slipping they really dont last very long so I would be getting it done sooner than waiting for it to give up completely.

Thanks for the advice 9000Parts. Should be getting it done within 150/200 gentle miles.

Unplug the electrical connector on the APC will help a lot as it will only give you base boost so less chance of a torque spike slipping the clutch. You will get a CEL after doing this but its fine to drive this way.

They seem to vary. My old 9-3 Aero clutch survived a few thousand miles from when I noticed the first slip. This one 'feels' like it's failing a bit quicker.
