Whenever you're looking to purchase a new clutch system or clutch kit, always know what you're buying. You can actually purchase just a throw out bearing, pilot bearing, clutch disk, clutch plate and pressure plate separately. If you're in the market for a new clutch system or kit, ask specifically for the kit or system. Then check your purchase before leaving the store. If your ordering your clutch kit online, make sure what you're buying is what you need.
A clutch kit usually consists of the pressure plate, clutch disc, release bearing and alignment tool. These are the typical items, but sometimes the bearing is sold separately. Make sure you tell the vendor what you want and need.
