Well, I dropped off the T5 to check out a few things and sure enough there were a few things.<p>Appears as though 3 motor mounts are failing. This pict shows the hydraulic front mount took a dump, must have been with in the past 2000 miles, as I was under the car changing the oil and everything looked good, now its stained.<p><IMG SRC="http://gallery.me.com/chris_stewart/100226/DSC00542/web.jpg?ver=12471800870001" BORDER="0"><p>Dealer said the RMS could be leaking. Jim had it replaced, so I dropped off the Keystone receipt so that will be a warranty repair, *IF* the RMS is actually leaking. Its not a return line, possibly the oil pan gasket; its not coming from down on the back of the block. <p><IMG SRC="http://gallery.me.com/chris_stewart/100226/DSC00544/web.jpg?ver=12471800920001" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://gallery.me.com/chris_stewart/100226/DSC00543/web.jpg?ver=12471800980001" BORDER="0"><p>So - if the RMS seal is replaced - I may replace the clutch with an upgrade. The current clutch is fine but if I'm in there I'd like to get it fresh. What is the improved setup? S60R pressure plate and S60R disc? any other items needed to swap to that clutch setup? any downsides to that setup?<p><br>

Single Mass wheel <br>850R clutch <p>You cant use dual mas wheel and S60R clutch due tot he splines are different from from your tranny to that. <p>Or get a 6 puck from CJ lol but I woudl want to drive that Daily ...... might die of whiplash

Completely agree with Justin.<p>Maybe a T5-R clutch kit is fine too but you might as well get the R one.

Considering the R and the T5 clutch are the same price I woudl just get the R one incase you decided with a turbo or any other type of upgrade

Any recommendations/thoughts on after-market clutches? I think mine only has a few months left on it and only found one or two aftermarket ones. Both from shops in europe (rica.nl and schweden-tuning.com).

Re: (JRL)

She's coming apart next week. <p>All I wanted was some of the sticky C70 grease on my dry steering stops and the coolant system flushed. Now I'm getting a RMS and a new clutch.

You might want to throw in a new release bearing while you're in there.

Re: Latest Repairs... clutch recommendation ? ([email protected])

What is the difference between the single vs dual mass flywheels?<p>Does it control how the clutch engages? smoother, harsher?<p>Can the 850R clutch kit be used with a stock T5 flywheel without issue?<p>

I really don't think you can change to a different flywheel than what came with it without some difficulty.<br>A dual mass is heavier so less throttle response, but usually much easier and smmother to engage a clutch
