BMW self-adjusting clutch centering mandrel/sleeve
It is commonly known that a self-adjusting clutch must be installed with using the special tool: 400 0437 10. Self-adjusting clutches for all BMW models are an exception to this rule.
With these, a locking piece in the clutch cover is used as an installation aid. After installation, it is removed with a suitable hexagon wrench (Allen key) in a counter-clockwise direction.
But how do you center the clutch, since the locking piece prevents access to the clutch plate hub?
Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket offers shorter centering mandrels for the different hubs. The length of the centering mandrel is designed to reach only as far as the locking piece and therefore center the clutch plate perfectly.
Another special design element is a pilot bearing inserted into the transmission shaft, which engages with pins protruding from a dual mass flywheel. For this design with N54 or N55 engines, we offer a clutch centering sleeve solution.
