Ok, i wanna know which side should i install the pressure plate in my clutch, We have 2 options right?

FIRST:



other angle but still the same option




SECOND:




Other view of the second option





So should i put the exedent of te pressure plate inside of the clutch or to the other side?


Please i know this seems noob but I have a very serious problem, maybe im wrong but i think the second option is the correct one right? no?

You mean second OPTION, right? Second pic is just another angle of option 1. Only in pic 3 are the springs facing the pressure plate.
