Clutch in friends 130 went at the weekend. He's an absolute brute in the yoke, not happy unless he spins the wheels everytime he takes off. There was 63k on the car when he bought it off some auld fella and 10k later the clutch has given up. We reckon it's down to his 10k of driving.

He's gonna get it remapped as well so waste of time putting a standard clutch in it.
Any recommendations or idea of prices???

I believe that Sachs are the way to go for that car. Don't know where to get them or how much though!

Micky32 has his clutch uprated on his 206bhp PD130, he'll let you know, or you could PM him

Mine went at 50k, most of that with tuning box or chip. Popped the clutch out, and it was the cover which had lost pressure, the clutch disc itself was fine with plenty of meat on it.

Sachs will do a full heavy-duty clutch, but what I did was just use the heavy-duty cover, and keep the standard clutch disc. Still a pricey bit of kit though. I can send on details if you're interested.

Other options are a paddle clutch, with standard cover - I think evanl is running something like this.

What Kw is the PD130 & what's the engine code too out of interest, I presume that they use the same code regardless of what car it's in?

Engine code for Golf PD130 is ASZ. That code is used in other cars with same platform. the passat has a different engine code for the 130 because different ancillaries due to engine arrangement etc
