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.
