'03 Wrangler, Clutch Problems

Im in Iraq currently and my wife has just informed me that my '03 Wrangler will not go into gear. I was wondering if there is any resources for complete break down and assembly of the clutch for an '03 wrangler? I know about haynes manuals, but I am currently in Iraq... So anything online would be great. The problems that I have currently thought of are the master/slave cyclinders are empty of the lines have a leak. Also what tools and equipment would I need to complete this project? Thanks in advance!

HI, you can start with the basics ,check fluid at the clutch slave reservoir ,if it need fluid ,add to the max and pump the clutch pedal to see if it engage,if not,you must have to bleed it ,it should be a bleeding valve at the slave cilinder,you will need assistance to do this ,to pump the cluth pedal several times and hold it down while you open and let the air out .if this dont help,it may be a bad cluth assembly,it is not to hard to replace it and you dont need any special tools,just basic tools and if you cant get a tranny jack you can use a floor jack, this are the basic steps disconect your positive battery cable remove the shifter,lift and secure the jeep in jack stands,disconect the drive shaft at the u joints , remove all the bolts that holds the tranny to the motor,you my have to remove the starter,position the jack under the tranny ,remove the cross member,remove all cables and every thing around tranny carefully pull the tranny to the back,replace the cluth good luck.................

3rd gear clutch needs replacing I'm wondering about the cost?


Anything on a Volkswagen is pretty tricky. Im not sure if you are thinking of the clutch having problems, or if you are having a specific problem with gear number 3. If it is just the clutch you are looking at anywhere from $1000-$2000 depending on the shop. If you are talking about the gear itself you are looking in the upwards of about $4000 as well depending if it is the synchro or the actual gear is warn out. Hope this gives you a better idea of what you needed!

Ive had two mechanics work on my jeep 91 wrangler.new clutch kit new master cylinder shifts fine engine off cranked have to double clutch to change gears im at the end of my wits love my jeep going nuts...


if the clutch is draging it will be hard to get your gears and they will chrunch going into gear but its most likly to be a gear box problem could be just low on oil or worse it may be the bulk rings and bearings worn out after all its now nearly 20 years old!

Your clutch is not disengaging. If it a hydrolic clutch chk. the fluid in resavor, Or slave cyl. for the clutch is bad, Or it has got air in it and needs to be bleed. This is a clutch problem, nothing wrong with trans. If its a manual clutch linkage its an ajustment thing. My best guess if its hydrolic slave cyl. went bad, or resavor is out of fluid.

Bad hoses


The lower radiator hose goes to the water pump, will have to drain radiator to replace it. You should hae 2 heater hoses, if your engine is an inline 6 cylinder one hose will go from the frot of engine by thermostate housing to the firewall and the second hose from the back of engine to firewall

My clutch pedal has no resistance and I can't shift gears...


If you have a hydraulic clutch, it is conceivable that the fluid has leaked out. For areas of leakage check up under the dash where the clutch master comes through the firewall., or check down at the transmission at the clutch slave, which is the small cylinder on the transmission. You should also fill the reservoir immediately as well.

If yours is the adjustable type of clutch, then you need to have it ajusted immediately

If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.
