The VW German made 228mm Sprung Clutch Disc is the factory style replacement clutch disc for 1976 through 1979 Type 2 Bus models, 1980 through 1991 Vanagon (non diesel models) and 1986 through 1991 Syncros.
Clutch components (like most things nowadays) are made around the world, by various manufacturers. A German clutch component comes from a German manufacturing company that may have numerous factories around the globe. Regardless of where the part is made, if it is labeled as a German part, it comes from a German company that has manufactured that component at a facility that is owned by them, and it is made to their high standards of quality and fitment.
The VW Clutch Disc is the link between pressure plate and engine. The pressure plate engages the clutch disc and engine flywheel. As the wears out it can cause slipping, leading to a loss of power. A badly slipping or worn disc can cause damage to the clutch cover and flywheel. Be sure to replace the clutch cover and throw out bearing every time you change the disc.
