Thickness spec for 2000 Forester clutch
Posted 25 April 2011 - 08:30 PM
As title says, 2000 Forester.
130k on vehicle.
I don't want to spend $175 if not necessary.
Did a quick archive search and found nothing firm.

I've used the take out disks from my wheeler in a WRX and a turbo legacy because they were better than the disks that came out of them, and they worked fine.
If it's worn to the point that the cross grooves in the disk that divide the friction surface into pad sections are pretty much flush with the surface, it's time to replace it.

Not to mention pilot and release bearings will be dry by now, which means it will only be a matter of time before they fail.
Check Ebay for clutch kits. You can probably find an Exedy/Daikin kit (they make the factory clutch for Subaru) for under $150 shipped.

Chucked that one in scrap metal, didn't want it getting mixed into my spare parts stash.
