Re: 1 Post, Clutch Problems
You will have to replace just about all the clutch parts due to the heat damage.
Remove the clutch drive plate and replace the engine oil seal and the O-ring. Caution, the plastic thrust washer is easy to break after it has been heated, best to get a new one of those too! Hope you have the service manual information, as putting the drive plate back requires specific torque of the large nut (get a new one of those also, they are a one time use, prevailing torque type nut), then turn it 60 degrees further, which fortunately is one flat of the nut, you do not need the BMW special angle measuring tool! You will have to make a bar to go across the drive plate, held with two of the bolts, which will rest on the bosses inside the housing to allow you to remove and replace the large nut.
Also, while the transmission is out, replace the front and rear input shaft seals, and the output shaft seal.
