My 633csi is in the shop with a bad clutch. My mechanic says I need an extension housing and the part has been discontinued. ghead Does anyone know where I can find one?? He said some OEM manufacturers make sleeves that do the same job, but he doesn't know where to get one for this car. Any suggestions would be most appreciated!
Thanks for the links! I didn't see the extension housing on there, but I will give them a call. I had found that link earlier through Google, but it went to the extension housing seal, which I would think is a different part. With this model well into it's 20's, you'd think more people would have had to replace this part (since it naturally wears down with time). I can't believe no one makes a replacement or the sleeve.
Perhaps I'm not even looking for the right part...I'm fairly sure that it is called the "extension housing" (part #1 in the diagram) and that the "extension housing seal" is behind it (part #2)...right?
