It looks like my 99' V70 T5 (engine B5234T3) lost its ability to turn its wheels.<br>It was gradually going from bad to worse and finally the releasing of the clutch pedal resulted only in the grinding noise from the engine. At first depressing the clutch pedal and putting in the first gear resulted in a bit of shaking of the car. And then one day a total failure. I discounted the possibility of the transmission being bad since the oil that I drained was clear like new.<br>I took the engine out, separated the transmission from the engine and unscrewed the clutch pressure plate from the flywheel. I don't see anything dramatic there. The driven plate still has its groves visible so not much wear there at all. The pressure plate and diaphragm spring with no visible damage, slave cylinder moving back and forth.<br>While I am that deep in the engine I will replace the clutch with the LUK clutch rep kit (22-031) but I am not quite sure if this is the root cause.<br>Between the crank shaft and the transmission there also is a flywheel and in volvos we have so called dual mass flywheel with torque limiter to protect the clutch, etc. It is supposed to spin a bit if the engine torque is too high. Since this is a suspect I checked the dealer price for that - $775.39 - kind of high for something that I would want to replace just in case.<br>My question is - did anybody go though this and has any comments of advise to share.<p>thanks<br>-Peter

I would replace with the stock (OEM) clutch parts

Re: replacing clutch in 99' V70 T5 (JRL)

Volvo does not manufacture their own clutches or flywheels - they buy them from LUK.<br>I checked my original parts they all have LUK logo on them. Funny that LUK can sell the repair kit that includes pressure and driven plates plus the slave cylinder for less then $300 while OEM parts from the same source cost more then double.

The transmission shifts with no problems.<br>Since I took the engnine out I had to drain the transmission oil and slave cylinder will be replaced.

Use Red Line syn in the gear box, makes for slightly easier shifting
