Check out the differences between 1.6 and 2.0 clutch. If it possible to change the all clutch to a 2.0 with your gearbox, just do it. Should help.
If not change the gearbox to a 2.0 beta.

1.6 elantra clutch is the same as coupe/tiburon 1.6 clutch.

From my knowledge 93-95 j1 elantra is mitsubishi based.

95 lantra J1 clutch (1.6, 1.8):
outside/inside 215x140 (8.5x5.9)

98-00 lantra J2, 98-01 coupe rd1/rd2 (1.8, 2.0) clutch:
outside/inside 215 x 145 (8.5 x 5.7)

These are the diferences. Better buy from j2 or rd1/2 to be sure.

As was said, the >>`96 Lantra/Elantra used the old Mitsubishi engine/gearbox!.

You need an up-rated clutch for the 2.0 `96+ Beta engine.......(the 1.6 engine was not offered in the U.S.).

Look at the `Shop` on this Forum, or try the larger-diameter 6-puck clutch from the Scoupe Turbo........my car is still on the original @ 98 K miles & I`m running about 180 b.h.p..

Cheers,

The problem in Europe is that Hyundai fitted a mixture of Alpha II`s & Beta I`s to the 1.6 version of the Coupe sold here.........most owners don`t even know which they have!.

(See also "Blankpage"`s post about his 1.6 Alpha II-powered car).

Perhaps your car uses the same gearbox as his.......if so, an uprated clutch designed for the same year of 1.6 Hyundai Accent will fit, as this car uses the same Alpha II engine.
There is probably one available from the Shop on this website, or you could use the larger-diameter 6-puck clutch fitted to the S-Coupe Turbo.......my car is still on the original @98K miles......& I`m running about 180 b.h.p..

Good luck!
