  12. 12. Step-6 And then remove the SAC lock by rotating counterclockwise using a 14mm Allen and if the SAC moves, use additional special tools to reset the SAC feature of the pressure plate.
  13. 13. Step-7 Next, torque six new Allen fasteners specified for your vehicle and then remove the clutch disc alignment tool from the clutch disc.
