Ok.. so im changing my clutch right now (finally got it out)

About 2 year old car, and the pad on the clutch is gone!

The flywheel has some hotspots on it, and i tried to get a shop to turn it for me but they said they cant... Hyundai said they cant. Hyundai said it would bee 800 dollars for a new flywheel.

Anyone know an alternative to this? or know how to fix the hot spots myself with a tool or sumthing?

Or can anyone get a cheep flywheel (hyundai employees?)


any help would be appreciated

BTW.. im suing Hyundai when im done

List is $885.80. I can do $625 shipped if you want a new one. I would have to order though, take me a couple days to get.

There's no way around this. Our type of flywheel must be replaced, can't be resurfaced.

I have a brand new aluminum flywheel that i bought but it was the wrong one for my car and the dealer refused to take it back. i bought it for $479 but will sell it for $300 or you can make an offer on it. An aluminum flywheel made a HUGE difference in my car. they usually increase the horsepower by at least 15 and my car acually got 2mpg better on gas after i had one installed. here are the specs for the one i have:


FIDANZA 193361 ALUMINUM FLYWHEEL 99-03 HYUNDAI TIBURON


*Object in picture may not reflet aftual product for your vehicle

YEAR/MAKE/MODEL PART # MSRP
1999-2003 HYUNDAI TIBURON 2.7L (5SP UP TO 3/03 / 6SP FROM 2/03)
193361 $479.00



Fidanza aluminum flywheels are made from the highest quality 6061 T6 aluminum. It's the optimal material for strength, heat dissipation, and weight reduction. The friction surface used is an incredibly strong 1050 steel. The plates are milled to precise specifications and can mate with any type of clutch material including organic, Kevlar, ceramic, metallic and sintered iron. The friction surface insert is attached to the flywheel using military grade aerospace fasteners. The ring gears are also made from 1050 steel and are heat treated for durability. The gears are first heated then pressed on and secured with grade 8 button screws. Fidanza was the first to utilize a stepped dowel system in most flywheel applications. This doweling method ensures that once the pressure plate is installed the dowels cannot be removed because they become locked into place. Fidanza designs and builds flywheels with extreme precision, offering tuners, racers and builders the high performance and unmatched power they're seeking.

Key Features:
6061 T6 BILLET ALUMINUM
GRADE 10 AEROSPACE FASTENERS
EXCLUSIVE STEPPED DOWELS
REPLACABLE 1050 STEEL FRICTION SURFACE
1050 HARDEND RING GEAR
CNC MACHINED AT CONSTANT SURFACE SPEED


I know it fits some newer years as well. check with your dealer or call fidanza. email me here or at [email protected] if interested.

800 for a stock flywheel? F^ck that, might as well get an aftermarket one and spend the extra cash on install or some other mods.

Well i talked to a shop down here and he let me borrow his tool that pretty much sanded it down with a air power drill... it took about 4 hours to get it looking new and it looks great and is smooth :)

Now im trying to put the car back together but cant figure out how the clutch arm goes back on :(

ugh... next time im paying the 2000...

BTW... P&R sells aftermarket hyunda clutch and clutch plate.. DONT BUY... its too thick and the hole wont even line up.. spend the extra 60 bucks and get a hyundai one...
