      so sitting here in the shop is a friends toyota Camry v6 5 speed, its a 2002 I think. He dropped it off to get a new clutch because it started slipping and he immediately stopped driving it. According to him, its the original clutch, and the car has 205K miles on it. I did some investigating and found the slave cylinder was bad, I replaced it and the clutch functions perfectly again. It holds the v6 power without slipping and still feels OK. He bought the clutch kit already, but were kind of in a bind as to weather we should do this job now or wait for the clutch to give out. who knows, it might still last for years until it dies from rust or some other old-age failure.

      I guess my question is, will a clutch normally slip before it wears down to the metal rivets? I dont want to leave it and then have the flywheel chewed up by rivets, but in my experience the clutches only hit the rivets when people continue to drive with a slipping clutch, and a slipping clutch is obvious to an experienced driver.

        Original clutch at 205k miles is pretty good – he must do a lot of highway cruising! I can see no reason to replace the clutch unless it’s slipping. As you say, a clutch will slip before it hits the rivets.

          The last clutch I replaced was exactly at the rivets when it slipped – I know I was driving. So, maybe before or maybe after. A good clutch job includes refinishing or replacing the flywheel so why the concern?

          I’ve leave this decision to the owner.

            Good materials selection means that the rivets are softer than the steel friction surfaces, so a bit of rivet contact won’t destroy things.

            Even the lousy old British motorcycles from the 1950s and 1960s had soft rivits in the brake shoes so as not to score the drums and the end of wear life.

            Toyota are pretty smart, but who knows??
