Clutch Alignment Tool

Replacing the clutch in my 00 Boxster after 228,000Km.

In the past I have used a home made tool that I made from a broom handle, but want to ensure I get it right 1st time as it looks like a PITA to the the trans back in.

Any hints or idea's would be appreciated.

Clutch kit should come with one...

If not, a big wooden dowel with the end turned down to fit the pilot bearing might work.

If your car is a 5-spd, send me your address, I'll send you the tool. (The 5 spd is a different diameter input shaft than the 6 spd. Ask me how I know.... grrr)

The larger diameter is the S. (I didn't measure it, so can't confirm the 25.4mm, but the clutch tool for the 5-spd fits snugly in the 5-spd clutch, whereas it's all loosey-goosey in the 6-spd clutch. )
