Does anyone know if a be4 bellhousing would fit a gti6 gearbox and bolt to a gti6 block so i could use a hydraulic clutch? It would need the starter mounting on the front. Thinking maybe one off a 206 diesel could be used, not sure of clutch as they are 200mm and the hdi 230mm? Im coming into a bit of money and would like to buy another 6 but i cant live with the heavy clutch. Apart from the 306 the only other car that does it for me is a tvr cerbera but i don't think i could afford the running costs for long.

the clutch is not heavy with a new cable and fresh bushes, sometimes an aged pressure plate causes it too.

^^ I used to think the cable clutch was to heavy until I did this.


Converted a be3 to hydraulic clutch when I fitted an all hydraulic pedal box, but it was no better than a properly set up cable system.

I have bought my old car back today, i replaced the clutch, genuine cable, new pivot bushes with plenty of grease just before i sold it roughly 10000 miles/ 1 year ago. The clutch is very heavy again. Just wandering if the cable has dryed up so soon as i wouldnt have thought the pressure plate should stiffen up after 10000 miles. Either way im gona have to go hydraulic, hopefully have a shorter throw as well. The hardest bit is deciding on the slave and master cylinder size to get the right travel and pedal weight. I recently did a clutch on a 206 diesel and the clutch was feather light, when it comes back in garage il have a look. Does anyone know the reason for using a pull type clutch on the gti6?

Im sure i read somewhere a while ago that the be4 bellhousing would fit a be3 box, or maybe it was the other way round. If you find an answer to the original question and it is a direct fit then i have a 206 GTi be4 box and slave cylinder sat in my garage that would be for sale Smile

I would think that the pedal side of things would be more difficult to sort out with the standard GTi6 pedal box. The 206 GTi has a remote servo on the passenger side and the clutch pedal is completely seperate.

The BE4 bellhousing would need a mod to allow one of the shafts to move far enough to select a gear, reverse IIRC, basically a hole drilling and a cap welding or bonding over it.

It'd need to be a 30 degree DW bellhousing not an EW one as the EW sits at 15 degrees (not all DW ones sit at 30 though I believe)

Use a 1.9 MI16/BX16v pressure and friction plate, with the push type BE4 release bearing for the Fork that pokes out through the front of the housing, standard BE4 hydraulic slave cylinder.

as for which master to use, depends much on how you get it to work of the original pedal.

Do you know if the primary shaft would mate to the be4 bellhousing? On the 206 i remember a bolt on release bearing sleeve that supports the shaft bearing Unsure
