In October of 2015 I began to notice that my clutch was slipping. My dad offered to replace everything to save me some money. I called to order the parts and even after giving the VIN number, they could not give me the exact part numbers. Apparently the clutch size was changed partway through the year and it is impossible to find the correct size without actually taking the car apart. Unfortunately, I don't have the option to take the car apart and let it sit while waiting for the parts, nor can I afford the "diagnosis fees" to have the dealership find the part numbers for me. I have called every Chevrolet dealership in my area (6 different dealerships) and the corporate office and all tell me the same thing, they can not give me the part numbers. I tried to find out when they changed clutches to compare that date with the date my car was built, but I was told that that wouldn't do me any good either. I have a friend who actually worked at the plant where the Cruze is built and he tells me that when when a part is replaced, the new has to fit for the old, but there appears to be a 8 MM difference in the new and old clutch. Has anyone else had this issue? Any insights would be appreciated.

The information should be based on the VIN. There is an 8 mm difference between the 1.4T and 1.8 liter engines so knowing the VIN should fix this for you. My recommendation is send your VIN to Helen and ask her to track back to the correct clutch size.
