Does anyone know if these fit the FK3 (??) 2.2 diesel 5-door or are they specific only to the FN2 Type R?
Original thinking was to reinforce the clutch line, in view of the increase in pressure.what is the reason for it`s existence?
what are the pro`s and con`s for removing the damper?

I don't find it 'stiff', just the pedal pressure has increased.
If its not worth it then fair enough - it may simply transfer yet more load onto the master cylinder.
Now my ignorance has me curious - what is this damper please?
I didn't expect there to be much difference.I'd wait until your devil clutch is fully bedded in before making any decisions. Should ease up a bit once it's all settled down.
How's your throttle pick up and deceleration with the lighter SMF ?
:thumbsup:I didn't expect there to be much difference.
Pedal pressure's heavier - as stated - but action and 'bite' are smooth - probably smoother than before.
Pick-up and deceleration - care here. I'm being gentle for now.
Pick-up seems faster than I'd expected in view of the relatively small difference - somebody mentioned could be that the DMF springs were so stuffed.
Trailing / Gentle throttle on / around 1,000 appear to need to be avoided - can feel more instability here than before, but no issue.
1,300 going up response - seems 'much faster', read as must be something.
General engine response seems 'more petrol' now.
VERY early days, so I'm just forming opinions.
Overall - excellent. Much better.
I'm obviously not 'the only one' and have been careful, and its low mileage and fully serviced - everything should point to 'nothing will go wrong' - I just want to avoid all and not have been the reason for creating a problem that wouldn't have ...
