The quick release option allows quicker gearbox removal and fitting by moving the 4 internal gearbox to bellhousing bolts to the outside of the gearbox. This allows the gearbox to be removed whilst leaving the bellhousing in place, making a difficult job much easier. The gearbox is attached to the bellhousing using the original bolts or 10mm cap head screws fitted from the rear of the bellhousing face of the gearbox *.
Requires 4 12mm x 1 1/2mm pitch cap head screws if not using the quick fit option above.
The RS2000 Clutch Fork and RS2000 Clutch Release Bearing will also be required if you do not have these components. The bellhousing comes complete with a pivot pin to suit the RS2000 Clutch Fork.
You may also need the spigot bearing that fits in the end of the crankshaft. Note that the bearing is not a press fit in the crank so would require fitting using bearing fit adhesive.

* Bolts pass through the original 12mm threaded bolt holes in the gearbox for a "clearance fit"; it may be necessary to grind a small amount of the gearbox material away in order to clear the bolt heads; the bellhousing is pre-tapped to accept these bolts
** 2.0l only; the 2.8l gearbox requires an additional adaptor plate due to the longer 1st motion shaft
