2006 Replacement Clutch

Postby ToddW187 » Sun Jun 14, 2020 7:39 pm

Well, I'm pretty sure my clutch is finally giving up the ghost in my 2006 5-speed. When I'm driving along in gear, giving it some beans (not even all the beans) causes the engine to rev without taking the transmission along for the ride. Could this be some kind of adjustment in the pedal, or is it definitely time for a new clutch? (120k miles, 6 or so owners so the history is unknown) If it is the clutch, what's the recommendation on replacing the flywheel?

I've left the car pretty much stock except for a front bar and Bilstein B6 shocks (and intend to leave it that way). Since I do as much autocross with it as I can, it looks like the Exedy Stage 1 clutch kit would be right for me, but I'm hesitant to double my money to do the lightweight flywheel. I'd also like to be able to make the next local autocross in 2 weeks, and I'm not sure if it's realistic to get the stock flywheel resurfaced in that timeframe.

Thanks for your insight and advice!

Yep, sounds like clutch slip.

Thanks Brian,

I've been doing some research on the different options available for clutch and flywheel. I see that there are different clutch kits for the 5-speed vs the 6-speed. Is there any difference in the flywheel for the 5-speed vs the 6-speed transmission?

Thanks again!

Flywheels are the same for all versions of the manual NC transmissions.
