Question about 2000 Toyota ECHO

2000 Toyota Clutch replacement

When shifting gears, I have a grinding noise, first it started with reverse, then going from 4th to 5th, it is also hard shifting; had taken to Dealer & was told it was due to my winter mats and the clutch couldn't engage but with all mats out, still have the trouble-had it for sometime. Some people state there is an adjustment for the clutch, butr Toyota states "no". other people state to bleed the line, but it's never been open to allow the air. We are now thinking of replacing the clutch, I have someone that works on older Toyotas but never on an Echo, Wondering if anyone has a solution or can advise on the procedure replacing the clutch. I have approx 180,000km and the car was bought new.-------db

Whenever you have additional floor mats in the vehicle, the clutch pedal does not go to the floor. This, in turn, prevents the clutch release mechanism from releasing the clutch disc fully from the flywheel. This causes premature clutch disc wear. I would agree that you need a clutch replacement.
The replacement is pretty straight forward, as long as your guy has the ability to support & hold the engine assembly while the transmission is removed.
No big mysteries on the clutch replacement.

the shift linkage may need to be adjusted a bit or the shift forks and engaged gears for 4th and 5th may have worn enough that they need to be inspected and fixed.

Won't go into gear to drive. may be transmission?


If the clutch has never been changed most likely it is that. The way you can check it is by removing the transmission and looking at the clutch disc. It could be transmission syncros but I am willing to bet you just need a new clutch.

They had a problem with this plastic washer that is in the shifter tower it sits just under the shifter it self and gets worn out and causes this to happen- hope that helps.
