a brand new 1.6 OEM clutch disc thickness for me? I need to see how worn some of the ones I have around are before using or discarding them.

Thanks in advance.

Shoot I wanted to know this when I last replaced my clutch. I think my 6-puck ebay brand was .440"...ish

from the service manual:

Quote:
Measure the thickness of the lining at the rivet head on both sides with vernier calipers.
Replace the clutch disc if less the minimum

Minimum thickness: 0.3mm (0.012in)

I saw that in the service manual, just wondering where they start out.

heh? That sounds incredibly thin, that's the thickness of 3-4 human hairs. And their explanation doesn't make sense. Is that total thickness of the friction disc, or from the top of the friction disc to the top of the rivet head?

That makes much more sense, although still incredibly small.
