What about dry clutches? Same material but no oil bath?

Dry clutches are definitely not the same material. A dry clutch judders horribly when it gets oil on it.

The main reason to soak (some) friction plates is that they expand a little as they soak up oil. If you don't soak them you might have to readjust the clutch several times shortly after installation.

Some companies make friction plates that do not require soaking.

But why they don't supply it with their kit? Do the number one plates not need to be replaced together with the rest as a set?

I think none of the clutch manufacturers supply the 'captive' plate because it can't be replaced without removing the clutch basket. That last plate *usually* does not show wear or heat damage unless the clutch has had a serious melt down.

Cool, that's what I needed to know, so I should be fine staying with them. Of course I will make sure they are still good.

Ok, it was my mistake, the kit does have 8 plates of each kind, but the friction plates are all the same, although the manual says there should be one of a different type.

The steel plates do come right, 7 of them are 1.6 mm and one of them is 2mm.

What's interesting is in 2000 xf models and afterwards they changed the location of the different friction plate to be in the outer part of the basket and not in the inner part of the basket.

The thickness of all friction plates should be the same : 3 mm. The difference between the one that is different is the shape of the friction tabs on it.

I have just broken the clutch basket tooth, using the vice grip method to remove the clutch basket. Nut is still stuck.

Do you think I could glue the tooth back using epoxy? I have the putty epoxy or the jb Weld.

I don't want the risk of it falling in the engine case though.

^^^ +1 Not worth the risk! If the basket finger came off it could really destroy your engine.

I put it with a missing finger and everything is good.
