Re: Ordered new Sachs clutch kit from Amazon, this is what I got

Offer to return it... who knows, maybe they'll be nice and give you your clutch free for the time lost.

Lord knows the mark-up on that piece has got to be more than your OE clutch.

I did exactly this; cut the wires and worked on it on the bench.

Re: E46 ZCP Lug Bolt color

Perhaps the previous person lost the ones where he had locks, and wanted to keep his wheel locks?

Re: Broken clutch pivot pin and my SMG code 59

I had the same problem recently, also had to replace my clutch fork.

I hope it's just your pivot pin! Are you going to go aftermarket with a metal pivot next, or stick with the plastic OEM?

Like Dan said it's not that hard; but things are in there tight. :)

And yes, there is no need to remove the hydraulic lines in this route.

Are you talking about removing spacers, OP?

If so, I just did this, and I also needed to use a finer-tipped flathead (2, one for each side of the spacer) and wacked it with a rubber mallet.

Re: 265 or 275 19" tire sizes ride quality and opinions please!

For what it's worth, I have a '06 ZCP and run 225/255 with 5mm spacers and have no rub.

I'm pretty confident you'd be fine with 235/265.

Re: Rebuilt SMG Pump

I've put some miles on twinturbo30psi seals and Burkharts motor, and it does indeed shift quicker. It's very pleasant.
