Question about Ford Mustang

Troubleshooting 2004 Ford Mustang 3.9 L, transmission. Vehicle whent into garage to have a new clutch pressure plate throwout bearing replaced. Pick car up at garage and the car developed a new loud clicking sound, whenever you were in neutral and let the clutch out, push the clutch in the sound would go away. Took the car back to have this problem fixed, and they diagnosed that it was the new throwout bearing and and they had also found that the input shaft was loose and wobbling also, so it also needed a new bearing and Housing that the bearing retainer set in. The garage replace the bearings purchased and replace the new housing, inspected the transmission, cleaned it, dumped the oil, and replaced with new gear oil. The sound is gone but now transmission has developed two more new problems. It will pop out of second gear only when downshifting and will grind going into fourth gear forward shifting or downshifting. It did not do this the first or second time it was put in the garage and they know this because they have driven the car, but when I went to pick the car up this last time, they told me that the car was doing these things and said it may be because of a synchronizer or they had adjusted the clutch cable and said as I drove it it may loosen up and correct itself. PLEASE HELP!!!!! ANY Help is appreciated!!!! This was going to be my 16-year-old son's first car who is a really good kid and he has yet to be able to drive this thing. Something special has turned into something wrong and disappointing!!!

Throwout bearing repair


Well, the gearbox has to come off. The bearing probably needs replacement rather than repair. Unless the clutch is very new, you may as well replace it too, and the pressure plate. Examine the throwout fork very closely for cracks, as they can fail that way.

  1. Remove the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  2. Insert a pilot shaft or an old input shaft into the center of the clutch disc, pressure plate, and the pilot bearing in the crankshaft.
  3. With the pilot tool supporting the clutch disc, loosen the pressure plate bolts gradually and in a crisscross pattern.
  4. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc.
  5. Clean the transmission and clutch housing. Clean the flywheel surface with a non-oil based solvent. Wash your hands before installing or handling the clutch assembly parts. Hold the clutch disc by the center hub only.

Before assembly, slide the clutch disc up and down on the transmission input shaft to check for any binding. Remove any rough spots with crocus cloth and then lightly coat the shaft with Lubriplate.
  1. To remove the throwout bearing assembly: Remove the return clip and take out the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing.
  2. To replace the throwout arm use a / 16 in. punch, knock out the throwout shaft spring pin and remove the shaft, springs, and the center lever.
  3. Do not immerse the throwout bearing in solvent; it is permanently lubricated. Blow and wipe it clean. Check the bearing for wear, deterioration, or burning. Replace the bearing if there is any question about its condition.
  4. Check the shafts, lever, and springs for wear and defects. Replace them if necessary.
  5. If you hadn't planned on replacing the clutch disc, examine it for the following before reusing it. Loose rivets. Burned facing. Oil or grease on the facing. Less than 0.3mm left between the rivet head and the top of the facing.
  6. Check the pressure plate and replace it if any of the following conditions exist: Scored or excessively worn. Bent or distorted diaphragm spring. Loose rivets.
  7. Insert the control lever into the clutch housing. Install the two return springs and the throwout shaft.
  8. Lock the shift lever to the shaft with the spring pin.
  9. Fill the shaft oil seal with multipurpose grease.
  10. Install the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing. Install the return clip.
  11. Grease the carrier groove and inner surface.
  12. Lightly grease the clutch disc splines.

The clutch is installed with the larger boss facing the transmission.
  1. Support the clutch disc and pressure plate with the pilot tool.
  2. Turn the pressure plate so that its balance mark aligns with the notch in the flywheel.
  3. Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel bolts head-tight. Using a torque wrench and, working in a crisscross pattern, tighten the bolts to 11-15 ft. lbs.
  4. Install the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  5. Adjust the clutch as described in the following information.

I drive a 04 mustang v6 and when i push on clutch it makes a loud squeling noise and the clutch gets hard 2 push


The pressure plate and release bearing are worn out. You will need a new clutch disc, pressure plate and release bearing. You can either get an estimate from a garage or replace the parts yourself. To replace you will need a transmission jack and mechanics tools.Remove the drive line. Support the engine with a stand and block of wood. Remove the rear bracket. Position the jack under the transmission and loosen the clutch adjustment. Separate the linkages and release bearing fork . Remove the bolts surrounding the bell housing. Carefully back out and lower the transmission. Remove and replace the clutch assembly, and pilot shaft bushing (brass part at the center of the flywheel). You use a wooden dowel or a pilot shaft tool to orient the clutch disc inside the pressure plate while re-installing.

Worn throw out bearing, replace or the problem may damage other components. This requires dropping the entire transmission. this bearing sits between the clutch pressure plate and clutch slave assembly. When the clutch pedal is pressed, the bearing makes contact with the spinning clutch pressure plate. If defective, grinding/squealing noises may be heard. If the bearing fully fails, loose debris may damage other components. Replace immediately!!

Changing the clutch or throwout bearing in a rear wheel drive is one of the easier things to do.
Having it on a lift is nice but it doesn't have to be. The truck needs to be high enough to get under and work. Needs to be on jack stands or blocking sturdy enough to hold the truck steady. Do not use ramps.

Remove the drive shaft, making sure the caps stay on the U joints. remove the shifter from the transmission. Take the slave cylinder off the trans., the stater, and then the transmission from the engine. You will need to support the motor in place so that it doesn't tear up the radiator or the firewall depending on the balance point. Take the trans down by pulling it back about 3 inches. Use a jack or 2 people to do this. Transmission is somewhere around 100 lbs.
On the back of the motor you will see the pressure plate held on to the flywheel with 6 bolts. Take the pressure plate off and the clutch is between the pressure plate and the flywheel. The flywheel may need to be resurfaced or you may just clean it up with coarse sandpaper. The clutch disc goes in one way with the spring assembly facing the rear of the truck. There should be an alignment tool with the clutch kit. The clutch has to be centered on the flywheel. If there is no alignment tool provided, you can center it by making sure the clutch disc is even with the edge of the pressure plate all the way around. Usually, the clutch is just a little bit smaller diameter than the pressure plate.

The throwout bearing is on the shaft coming out of the transmission. Should be held on by a fork that sticks out through the bell housing. After the throwout is replaced and you make sure it has free travel on the shaft reinstall the transmission. You may need to wiggle it a bit to get the splines on the shaft and the ones in the clutch to line up. Make sure the transmission is held straight so that the shaft in the transmission doesn't get bent. Slide the trans. to the motor and onto the alignment pins and bolt in place. Reinstall everything and you are done.
Thank you for using Fixya and since your going to replace the throwout bearing, you might as well replace the clutch since you have the transmission away from the engine to replace the bearing. Good luck and be safe.

How to change clutch in a 2000 mustang v6


First you go to mechanics school so you know the basics on safety etc.
Now you can block the car up in the air and remove the driveline and all electrical and mechanical connections from the transmission. Next support the engine while you unbolt the transmission from the engine. using your transmission jack slide the transmission back far enough to get easy access to the pressure plate. remove the bolts holding the pressure plate in place and remove the old clutch. Of course you got a new clutch, pressure plate and throwout bearing right? you may need a pocket bearing for the tip of the transmission input shaft as well. installing is the reverse of removing though you will have to consult the manual for torque specifications and you will need to make sure the clutch is centered before you bolt the pressure plate back down.
OR you could take it to a transmission shop and have them do it for a couple hundred bucks.,

How do you replace a clutch bearing pressure plate? On a 1992 mazda navajo


You need to remove the transmission (and transfer case if its 4 wheel or all wheel drive) to access the clutch assembly. Be prepared to replace the clutch disk, pressure plate, thrust bearing, throwout bearing, and in your case since its a Ford/Mazda the slave cylinder and plastic line to the master cylinder. A very big job for the do-it-yourself-er.
