Double clutch repair kits

Clutches from LuK

Published:  31 October, 2013

The dry double clutch from LuK, initially developed for Volkswagen, improves energy efficiency, helping to reduce fuel use and emissions, combining the comfort of traditional planetary automatic transmission with the efficiency of a manual. It consists of two clutches on two different input shafts - one actuates the odd gears and the other deals with the even-numbered gears and reverse. No hydraulic support systems are involved so fuel savings up to 10% can be achieved compared to a wet transmission - between 12% and 18% savings can also be made on CO2 emissions compared to a conventional automatic gearbox. The LuK RepSet 2CT is available from Schaeffler and provides independent garages with two engagement levers, two engagement bearings, adjusting shims and all the parts need for mounting. A specially developed tool helps remove and install the dry double clutch and detailed instructions, training and technical brochures are also provided. The sets are for use on the 7-speed transmissions used on Audi, Seat, Skoda and VM models but the firm is looking to create additional sets for use on other marques.
