Release Bearings & Shafts

VW Release/Throw Out Bearings and Shafts for Aircooled Volkswagen Models.

Tech Tip: You are dealing with a very old Volkswagen and over the years some cars were converted to 12 volt. From 1949 to 1966 VW used a 180mm clutch size which coincided with being 6 Volt, from 1967 to 1979 VW increased the clutch size to 200mm when they convert to a 12 Volt system. Also during the production span the throw out bearing changed, from 1971 to 1979 Volkswagen introduced a guide tube around the input shaft of most models requiring a different style throw out bearing.

Please closely identify your clutch system when ordering to ensure you get the proper parts for your application.
