LuK Release Bearing
The main power transmission element of the clutch
The release bearing is the connective element between the rotating clutch pressure plate on the engine side and the rigid release mechanism on the transmission side.
To transfer release force to the clutch pressure plate, thrust ball bearings are used. Today’s release bearings are equipped with a radially-moving thrust ring which is held in exact position by a sleeve on the transmission side. This keeps it in an optimal central position in relation to the tip of the clutch diaphragm spring in all operating conditions. In this way, component wear is minimised.
The release bearing is subjected to high load and should always be replaced whenever the clutch is repaired.
Important! - always adhere to the defined pre-load applied to the tips of the diaphragm spring.
- Pre-greased and permanently sealed for maintenance-free operation
- OE quality
- Low noise
- Flexible via angular-misalignment compensation
