Worn bushings and poor sealing ring performance caused by excessive clutch drum run-out and instability can cause a variety of complaints in VW units.

Sonnax bushing kit 119905-02K contains three precision bushings for improved sealing characteristics.

  • Bushings are steel-backed and bronze-lined for better wear resistance
  • Tighter clearances provide better drum stability and improved circuit integrity
  • No machining required for bushing installation
  • Tools prevent damage to housing bore while removing bushing and allow new bushing to be installed to the correct depth
