1968 – 1979 VW 1600 Transporter Clutch

The clutch is a single disc design and incorporates a driven plate (which carries the friction material on each side) and a pressure plate and cover assembly. The pressure plate is tensioned by a diaphragm spring (or coil springs on early models) incorporated in the cover assembly. The clutch operating level pivots in the forward end of the gearbox casing and a thrust bearing on the inner end bears on to the ends of the three release fingers when the arm is operated. The operating arm is moved by a cable from the clutch pedal.
