  • 2007 1KD 6 speed Clutch

    hello,

    the clutch in my Prado has gone so I'm after some opinions on a replacement,
    i had a flick through the search but everything was pre-2011 and not really relevant,

    can anyone recommend a good clutch and even a go shop to fit it in Brisbane
    I've stumbled across http://exedydirect.com.au/index.php?...ch&search=7746
    which are selling the kits pretty cheap, however, what is the benefit of the safari tuff vs H/D?

    I've also been quoted clutch industries 4 terrain kits for 1135 and standard for 710?

    does anyone have any reviews on pedal feel between the different clutches?

    the car is currently stock and not used for towing,
    however, I might fit and exhaust and clutch down the line

    thanks for your time,

    Leon

      Keen to know how you got on Leon.

      My clutch failed about 18mths ago and i don't know what they replaced it with but i don't like it.

      Alot of slop in the pedal and the grab point is right off the floor and should i be a little heavy footed and rest my foot on the pedal it can at times slip.

        A lot has got to do with the installation. A mechanic mate always sets up the disc and cover on the flywheel and checks the diaphragm height is in spec. He once went to fit a genuine clutch to a Rodeo (IIRC) and ended up having to machine a huge amount off the flywheel to get it right. If the diaphragm fingers are not at the right height you start with a clutch that doesn't clamp correctly as it is already preloaded, or in your case perhaps not close enough to clamp properly. That may well explain why the engagement point has moved and why it is so close to slipping when engaged. Unfortunately clutches installed incorrectly may only see a few tens of thousands of km before slipping again. I have around 200k on my original clutch (much of it towing a 2T van) so you should be able to get a reasonable run from a properly fitted clutch. You can't even trust the OEM to manufacture it right, you HAVE to check it!
        cheers

          Awesome answer and explanation Steve.

          Greatly appreciated and i know just the guy to talk to locally to me for that stuff.

          He been in the clutch and brake game along time, if i explain my situation to him id say he would have a fix or idea for it.

          Time to start saving i guess for when it goes again.

            So how many kms do the original clutches last for usually? Mine has almost clocked up 250000 km and still seems fine. I do a fair bit of towing too.

              At 202K mine has the slightest shudder cold when towing the 2T van.

              It's usually a mechanical limitation....
