You can also flip the friction plate around so the new side faces out! It's like turning your pants inside out for another few days of use. I use small tiny drops of grease to hold the material to the housing, have used qbond before though when my grease was out of reach.
Yes I have flipped the clutch pad around once on one of my old clutches - this one I have in my De Stijl now (2004) has about 4 years left on this side, then i'll flip to the other side - my thread about 2011 clutch is now in my nans dc04 absolute - I used to have the 2011 and nan with the 2004 - but i switched them so she has the 2011 and I have the 2004 because I like the sound this clutch makes - i'll try record it tomorow. It makes the usual clutch growl - like my nans 2011, however this 2004 one has that clutch sound but with what I can only describe as a faint deisel engine sound...

I thought this was a vacuum forum :)) Not a central heating, random talk, grammar lessons, plastic flimsiness etc, etc, etc. with the occasional vacuum mentioned now.....                                                           So the clutch - Very clutchy if you ask me...

After Beko's point, I agree. 2 for belts or 3ish with a new wheel or 20 on a new clutch. Makes it silly to buy a new one.
