Hi there,

Looking to fit a new clutch assembly on my MK2 as it sounds absolutely terrible. Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZbYtcsHHAM

The rebuilt engine uses the engine code 'EX' Brazil manufactured block that came from a Golf Cab. The original block has the engine code 'GU' Mexico manufactured. Both 1800.

I'm curious to whether the flywheel would also need to be changed. Is there any way of finding out?

My Golf is a 1991 1.8L GL 8v. Clutch kit i'm looking for uses the part number: 027198141A

Thanks!

you would need to count the bolts on the flywheel. it will be either 9 or 6. if you pull out the plastic blank at the top of the bellhousing you will be able to count through there :wink: pretty sure the 1.8 had a 200mm 6 bolt clutch/ flywheel and the gti was 210mm 9 bolt.
