REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Vehicles equipped with manual transaxles are equipped with flywheels and automatic transaxles use drive plates. Drive plates and flywheels are removed and installed in the same manner.
- Separate the transaxle from the engine either in or out of the vehicle.
- Loosen the 6 or 8 bolts that attach the flywheel/drive plate to the crankshaft.
- Remove the fly wheel/drive plate from the crankshaft.
- Wire brush the retaining bolts thoroughly to remove all the old sealant from the threads.
- Remove any sealant or debris from the crankshaft and flywheel/drive plate bolt holes. If the holes are filled with oil and grease, clean them with a small wire brush and solvent. You may have to run the proper size metric tap down each bolt hole several times to clear the hole.
- Apply No. 08833-00070, three bond®1324 or equivalent adhesive to the last two or three threads of each bolt. Use new bolts.
- Support and position the flywheel/drive plate onto the crankshaft.
