The first step in a warranty claim would be to contact the store where you bought it. After determining that there may be a manufacturing issue, the store where you bought the clutch can submit the product to us for further examination. We will make our determination and work with the store to resolve the issue. No warranty claims are offered sight unseen.
We recommend that you only buy our products from an authorised dealer. We don’t condone buying EXEDY products from resellers on Ebay or other auction type website, since we have no way to confirm that the products are genuine.
There are many manufacturers and designs for clutches. We make every effort to use the most suitable components for your application. Check the part numbers and compare what is listed on our application chart for your vehicle. If the components fit properly without modification, chances are you have the correct parts. If it appears something needs to be modified to make it work, stop and contact our technical department.
Yes! The alignment dowel pins properly locate the cover assembly to the flywheel. Without these pins severe vibration and engine damage can result. The alignment dowel pins should always be replaced if they are damaged, broken off, or missing from the flywheel.
We recommend breaking in the clutch for 1,000 km with mild engagement such as stop and go city driving prior to racing or spirited driving. EXEDY race discs usually only require a few hard slips to lap in the surfaces prior to normal driving or racing. Do not overheat the clutch during the break in period.
All EXEDY products are designed with longevity in mind; however, clutch life will greatly depend on the vehicle, your type of driving and the output of the engine. For example a vehicle driven in heavy stop and go traffic will have a reduced clutch life than the same vehicle that is driven on the open highway.
It is important to install the correct EXEDY clutch system in the vehicle. Knowing what characteristics you want in a clutch and the power capability of the engine is important. What is the vehicle used for? (Daily driving, Towing, Road racing, Drag racing, off road, Etc.)?
For towing or other street use we recommend the use of the EXEDY Up rated Sports Organic disc for smooth engagement.
For racing or off - road, the EXEDY Up Rated Cerametallic paddle race disc will give faster shifting, more power capacity and more durability at the cost of harsher engagement.
What is the maximum torque output of your engine? Torque capacity listed in our application chart should be about 10-20% greater than the engines torque output.
How heavy is the vehicle? A heavier vehicle is harder on clutch parts than a lighter vehicle. More heat is generated in the clutch getting the heavier vehicle moving.
