95 golf clutch throw out bearing problem

It appears that the pivot arm shaft that pushes on the plunger that engages the throw out bearing has slipped off the spline.
I need to remove this shaft to inspect it.Any hints as to how to remove it?
Also how far out should that plunger be when disengaged?

The clutch is difficult to remove, it was not lubricated when built. Is there a way of getting the clutch off when it is dry?


You talking about a manual clutch? Pry the pressure plate off after the bolts are removed. The guide pins rust. Do not use lube to reinstall it. Any type of lube on the flywheel, clutch, or pressure plate will cause premature failure. The only lube is for the throw out bearing to the transmission shaft. and some on the pivot point of the throw out arm.

I have a 1995 Chevy s10 with 4.3 vortex 5 speed. I jus installed a new clutch kit. After getting it back together I tried to press the clutch and its really hard to push what's wrong?


check that throw arm has not become disconnected from the pivot ball in side the bell housing during the installation of the gear box. This can some times happen and the arm is pressed against the opening and doesn't press on the pressure plate fingers.. Check that the fingers of the throw arm are still properly positioned behind the throw out bearing and not behind the bearing carrier.

No gears at allk


sounds like problem in the transmission shift top if it won't shift gears. If throwout bearing is not engaging pressure plate, it sounds like the pivot for the clutch acctuator is broken

Clutch not engaging


Well, it would shift easily with engine off, because the transmission input shaft is not turning. Engine running and clutch engaging good, the input shaft would again be stationary and allow smooth shifting.
What you have to determine is if the clutch disc or pressure plate is bad (a new clutch is needed), or if the pedal hydraulic system has a malfunction. When you push the pedal down, a rod from the top of pedal pushes into the clutch master cylinder bolted to the firewall under the hood. This cylinder has a reservoir filled with brake fluid. When the rod forces fluid from the clutch master down a steel line and into the clutch slave cylinder down on the transmission bell housing, the hydraulic pressure forces a plunger from the slave cylinder to extend and push the clutch fork lever a small amount, enough to force the clutch release bearing (aka throw-out bearing) against the pressure plate. This relieves pressure on the clutch disc and input shaft becomes stationary for easy shifting.

I'm haveing trouble installing throw out bearing on my 1990 ford ranger just got done installing my second throw out bearing and I'm still having the same problem clutch pedal does not engage


There should have been a clip to secure the bearing on the fork shaft. Was it secure??
Clutch may not engage if clutch master cylinder or clutch slave have not been properly bled. There is no adjustment on hydraulic systems. Bleed again if necessary.

I would be checking the throwout bearing. But, if the clutch isn't slipping, maybe leave it for now?

If you put it in 5th gear, let out the clutch with handbrake applied and it stalls--the clutch isn't slipping for sure.

The clutch pedal is rock hard won't go in too gear checked the clutch master cylinder and thats ok, so do you know what the problem is.


Possible solution! Daewoo Lanos 98-99
Had the same problem suddenly the clutch pedal went rock hard!
The clutch was around 3 months old.
Mechanic checked - Master, Slave, Clutch Components, and inside the box, all looked okay.
Turned out the top arm of the clutch pivot rod had twisted, replaced pivot rod around AU$100.
Fixed Problem!

The clutch is stuck to the floor bord and i cant shift


you may have a faulty clutch master cylinder or faulty clutch slave cylinder- leaking clutch fluid. most of the time both are replaced at the same time which should be recomended by your mechanic, the bolts to the master cylinder are very hard to get to and require the right tool.
you should be able to move car forward by selecting 1st then cranking engine till it starts, gear changes while driving are hard but not impossible. i recommend a tow truck to a local repairer.

87 suzuki samurai - What are the symtoms of a bad throw out bearing? *It has a new cable* I can't get cable to adjust anymore. While pushung clutch car makes sqeeking and chatter noise and acts like clutch...


The symptoms of a bad throwout bearing is a horrible noise that ONLY occurs when you are pressing on the clutch. And/or you have no clutch action at all - the car is either in gear or it's in neutral. Sounds just like your situation alright.

Usually bad throwout bearings damage pressure plate fingers to the point that they need replacing too. And while they are in there, they will want to replace the clutch disk too. And then lathe the flywheel flat again so that they don't have a repeat customer complaining about the lousy clutch $job$ he just got. Flat flywheels supposedly won't chatter on take off or clutch engagement, but it could be hose job where you get soaked as well.

I went this route once on a gremlin - $500. The only reason I paid up was that I had a real good job at the time, and then I've never been back either.

Clutch sticks to floor or is slow to release?


could be a couple of things check release bearing is not binding on output shaft or the arm which holds the release bearing is not bent or worn where it pivots also check where the arm pivots point is not worn out if all checks out replace the clutch pressure plate,clutch discs,throw out bearing and pilot bearing,one more thing is a clutch disc has some springs mounted to it to absorb some of the pressure when engaging the clutch and i have seen these springs come off and get in between the clutch assembly but usually when this happens you can feel and hear some grinding metal noise.but to check all the above the transmission will have to be removed.
