Hi
I’ve been looking at the dark side gearbox shim kit and notice it comes with 3 shims of 0.65mm.
Also looking on eBay the “genuine” shim kits seem to just have one shim of unstated thickness. The listing says genuine parts so I assume both the cap and shim are!
Anybody had any experience of fitting the shim(s) and care to share thoughts on which I should get?
I’d be interested to know the thickness of the single genuine shim just for comparison.
My clutch pedal occasionally seems a little slow to come back up and I understand fitting the shim(s) may help with this.

Cheers.
