Clutch Plate, Wear, Damage Inspection
Visually inspect the friction and steel plates for signs of
seizure, overheating (discoloration), or uneven wear.
Measure the thickness of each friction plate [A] at several
If any plates show signs of damage, or if they have worn
past the service limit, replace them with new ones.
Friction Plate Thickness
2.72 ∼ 2.88 mm (0.107 ∼ 0.113 in.)
Service Limit: 2.6 mm (0.102 in.)
Clutch Plate Warp Inspection
Place each friction plate or steel plate on a surface plate
and measure the gap between the surface plate [A] and
each friction plate or steel plate [B] with a thickness gauge
[C]. The gap is the amount of friction or steel plate warp.
If any plate is warped over the service limit, replace it with
a new one.
Friction and Steel Plate Warp
0.15 mm (0.006 in.) or less
Service Limit: 0.3 mm (0.012 in.)
Clutch Spring Free Length Measurement
Measure the free length of the clutch springs [A].
If any spring is shorter than the service limit, it must be
Clutch Spring Free Length
41.6 mm (1.64 in.)
Service Limit: 40.1 mm (1.58 in.)
Damper Cam Inspection
Remove the clutch (see Clutch Removal).
Visually inspect the damper cam [A], cam [B], and the
torque limiter spring [C].
Replace the part if it appears damaged.
