I decided to make a risky purchase and bought a cheap clutch kit on eBay for my focus SVT. Instead of that brand, I received a luk brand kit. How can I tell if it even fits my car?

Looks like a oem d/m svt clutch to me...Luk is the oem clutch for the svt, which I'd run in a svt vs the cheap clutch.....

Is there a way to tell if it's a Zetec or SVT clutch? Also, is this a decent slave cylinder?

You need new bolts for the flywheel though right?

Also if its still the OEM clutch when you repalce it the new one will be bigger due to a TSB that was issued after the assembly of all the SVT Foci that the clutch needs to be larger.

I totally need new flywheel bolts haha. I am running stock clutch with 220k miles. T/o makes lovely crunch sounds when you touch the clutch pedal. The clutch is so worn out that it lost slippage. It has essentially turned into an on/off switch that is anything but smooth.

Dont want to risk getting the crappy brand. Need to hold out for another Amazon mistake, a few people got the Luk clutch kit for like $15 on Amazon before the mistake was corrected.
