Blessed week to you all.

I'm planning to change my clutch in about a month or so and wanted to gather some information before making a final order.

Ofcourse that parts that would need to be replaced are the clutch, clutch cover and the flywheel?
Not too sure about the flywheel, but if needed would it be better going lightweight or sticking with the dual mass?
Clutch disc and clutch cover can remain oem.

Also needed would be the clutch release bearing (to get rid of some of the noise :) ) and the spigot bearing?
And what about the 8 screws that attacht to the flywheel?
Any input, advice or suggestions appreciated on what would be needed.
Some links or info on where to buy also

Yeh Stabby...

I recently changed my press. plate, clutch, flywheel, spigot bearing, release bearing, flywheel bolts, rear engine oil seal, clutch master and slave cylinders, DOT 4 fluid.

The clutch i got from Nick is an Exedy HD Clutch Kit
Part Number - TYK7378HD

and a JUN Lightweight Flywheel - 6.4kg
Part number - 2001M-T030
This flywheels comes with bolts as the OEM bolts are too long.

I have it in 2 weeks now and its great...engine revs much faster up and down and the clutch grips very very well...

Hello poTTa, thanks for the information.
Some more questions came to mind..

Is the Exedy HD kit somewhat similar to the oem one? does it require more pedal pressure..smooth driving?
With all the changed parts do you still hear the squealing and chirping from the transmission?
And do you know the part numbers for the spigot bearing and rear engine oil seal? can't seem to find it on toyodiy...

The master and slave cylinders are also necessary or just optional?..mine isn't leaking (yet) and hopefully stays that way :)

That Exedy clutch kit i have is just a stronger pressure plate (one level above oem). However the pedal is softer than oem now, i don't know how that happen. :lol:

I changed the release bearing with a genuine oem and the chirping is still there... :lol: ...i've accepted it as a disease that all Altezzas have.

The master and slave cylinder replacements are optional...

And you should be able to find all of the part numbers on Toyodiy...did you register selected your car?

This is mine, not necessarily yours...

Haha..yeah that chirping is really annoying..especially in the morning..
And normally I just go to the site and select my car from the lists that they have (japan, 1999, altezza, sxe10 etc etc)
So the clutch release bearing is: 31230-53010, spigot bearing: ?, rear engine seal oil: 90363-12004?

ok thanks for the info Evelyn.
The part number for this is: 90105-12312.

I think I'll be going with this setup. But not for now. Just wanted to gather some info before making my purchase in about a month or two.

Thanks for all and will keep you posted once I have the items.
