VW Group DSG clutch setting gauge kit

Speed up and simplify the fitting of DSG clutch kits to generations 1 and 2 VW Group DSG transmissions with this comprehensive setting gauge kit (part number 7914) from Laser Tools.

These transmissions are used in vehicles across the VW Group ranges, specifically Gen 1 DSG 7-speed fitted from 2008 and Gen 2 DSG fitted from June 2011. The tool kit is equivalent to OEM T10466 and T10374 gauge blocks.

Included are setting blocks, a sliding feeler gauge, a pair of lift-up hooks to test for free-play plus a dial-test indicator (DTi) with accessories. With the supplied comprehensive instructions, these are used for fitting and setting up the clutch plates and release bearing mechanism.

The kit is supplied in a sturdy steel case with internal EVA foam tray that keeps the kit secure and clean, and the shallow case design fits neatly into the toolbox drawer.
