NOTE: Perform the following procedure, when replacing only the clutch disc on Diesel vehicles with Dual Mass Flywheel and self- adjusting pressure plate. The pressure plate must be reset before installing a new disc.

1. Support pressure plate flange with press blocks (3) on a press.
2. Center press ram (2) on the pressure plate diaphragm spring fingers (1).
3. Compress the diaphragm spring fingers (1), until tension is released from the stepped adjusting ring.

4. Place two screwdrivers against two of the three stepped adjusting ring (1) tension spring stops, just ahead of the adjusting ring tension springs on the pressure plate (2).
