I thought as the i30 fleet out there starts to age, and we get more enquiries about low clutch pickup, or gear selection issues I've created a sticky thread.

Here's some research I've done noting these valves have no markings whatsoever but their job to to soften the clutch rengagement and protect the driveline from excessive shock.

At some point I'll add some links to other members who have put in some excellent work on this topic with solutions as well.

I know there are many vehicles likely to have a "clutch damper" of sorts fitted. I know my old favourite E54A V6 Galant had a damper cylinder attached to the gearbox inline.

Someone makes these valves, so what's out there?

I did a search and I threw in M16 clutch damper, got some hits!  :goodjob2:

Subarus and would appear the Turbos had these introduced for the prupose of drive train preservation I guess from the clutch dumping folk . :whistler:

Here's a Subie example.








You can guess what these people have been doing, Bypass, and the solution, a M16 x 1.5 plug. Sound familar?

The valve looks identical to me.

At this point it would appear the part is not in the breakdown for availability . Still searching though.

EDIT:
SUBARU

37261FC000


More digging to be done. Subie use NABCO master cylinders, a Japnese supplier,  head in that direction.

Next stop, a NABCO fitted to Mitsubishi, I have the OEM cats for them, find a model with what again appears identical.

here's one, Found in Challengers, / Pajero sports both V6 and TDi. Sounds promising  :goodjob2:




Good news, Mitsubishi decided to break down to this part.

MR319469

And Mitsubishi Australia have it in their system. No, there's none in Country

So, I've ordered one for the sake of research and humanity.

$20



It will have the same thread I believe as the washer spec Mitsubishi has listed 16.3mm , makes sense for a M16 thread.

I'm praying they're available still  :wait:

I'm expecting to find these may be extinct

Thanks again, :lol: Sherlock!
If / when I get my claws on one, I will report. Being clever enough to find one is one thing, actually getting one, well, we'll see. I've been down this road before many a time to find obsolescence,  rules.  :mrgreen:

Pricewise, Mitsubishi is cheapest

The overwhelming common thread though is NABCO
