IS300 / Lexus / Remove Clutch Dampening Device (CDD)

Difficulty: MediumLabor: 1 hrsParts Cost: $7-$20Service Interval: N/A

The CDD installed on IS300s with a manual transmission was added to make it “easier” and smoother to drive. For people with a lot of experience driving a manual or intend to drive race/track your car this mod is a must. (It makes heel-toe MUCH easier)



Steps

1
Locate the Clutch Dampening Device (CDD).
It is located on the drivers-side, next to the firewall.
2
Place a cloth under the CDD and the lines that run into it.
You DO NOT want to get any fluid on paint or other surfaces.
3
Unscrew the two lines that enter the right and left side of the CDD.
There should not be much, if any, fluid that drips out of the lines.
4
Unscrew the bolts that hold the CDD to the car frame.
Be careful when you pick up the CDD because fluid will probably drip out.

5
Replace the CDD w/ the brake union connector.
Screw the two lines back into their respective ends. Make sure you do not over tighten/strip these screws. You could remove the internals of the CDD but since it is so much more work and the union connector is much cheaper and cleaner I am not even going to cover how to do that here.
6
Bleed the clutch fluid.
