Flywheel - removal, inspection and refittingXV, XW and XY engines in-car repair procedures / Flywheel - removal, inspection and refitting
1 Remove the clutch assembly as described for models with the BH 3 transmission in Chapter 6.
2 Undo the retaining bolts and remove the flywheel from the crankshaft. If necessary hold the flywheel stationary using a screwdriver engaged with the starter ring gear.
3 If the flywheel’s clutch mating surface is deeply scored, cracked or otherwise damaged, the flywheel must be renewed.
However, it may be possible to have it surface-ground; seek the advice of a Peugeot dealer or engine reconditioning specialist.
4 If the ring gear is badly worn or has missing teeth, it must be renewed. This job is best left to a Peugeot dealer or engine reconditioning specialist. The temperature to which the new ring gear must be heated for installation is critical and, if not done accurately, the hardness of the teeth will be destroyed.
5 Clean the mating surfaces of the flywheel and crankshaft. Remove any remaining locking compound from the threads of the bolts and crankshaft holes, using the correctsize tap, if available.
6 Fit the flywheel to the crankshaft. The flywheel holes are offset so it will only go onto the crankshaft flange in one position. Apply thread locking compound to clean threads, screw in the flywheel bolts and tighten to the specified torque.
7 Refit the clutch assembly as described in Chapter 6.
