    has it dropped an bit and its catching on the ring gear ,their is no spigot bearing to stick a bit on the input shaft ,if i was popping by i would stop for a cuppa and give some hinderance ,is it free from the engine or is it stuck on the engine as their are two locating dowels and this could be causing it to stick if so two small crowbars either side should do it and support the gearbox so its level with the engine and not hanging down

    all done thanks to a transit van a rachet strap and 2 pry bars. lol. but true. i strapped the gearbox and my mate clipped it to the wheel as he tightened i was underneath with 2 tyre levers. then with a bit of luck off she came. the main cause of the problem was that the clutch fork had seized solid and wouldnt move an inch. whoever had replaced the clutch less than 5thou ago could not have removed it and cleaned it or lubed it with engine oil. it took a drive shaft remover clamp to pull the ally top seat of the actuall arm. one word. NIGHTMARE. thanku for your comments. the car had 190thou on the clock so i have to assume that they never re greased the folk in anyway.

Says i laughing to myself ,yes they are easy to remove but you must lower the subframe ,although i have managed to change the clutch through a small gap by removing the engine mounts and moving the engine over a bit allowing the bell housing to swing back a bit so i can get to the clutch cover bolts ,then drop the disk which allows the cover to drop down WATCH YOU FINGERS .then refit the clutch leaving the cover bolts finger tight then the gearbox can be made to align up .then i drill a hole in the bell housing that aligns up with the clutch cover bolts which i then use a 1/4 socket set to tighten the clutch bolts through the hole .All clever stuff but this is a cowboy type job but at the end of the day it works

SOURCE: broken control arm on a 03 hundya

Yes axle will just re insert in to the transfer case. My recommendation is to replace this stuff now since it is all apart anyways. Yes the ball joint will have to be pressed into the control arm. Some ball joints are designed that they just pull into the control arm as you tighten it.

02 accent slave cylinder leak and gear grind

Does the car want to pull when sitting still in gear with your foot on the clutch? If so, I would say that your clutch is not fully engaging and could be the cause of your grinding when changing gears. If not then I would think the clutch is operating fully and the synchros are worn and need replaced. But either way, with metalic fluid being in the slave cylinder dust boot, the slave cylinder needs changed.

The cluch pedal does not come back up at times and the following time it does not work and consequently cannot swith to a gear on my Landrover Freelander 2003, 2L. diesel. Gilbert

i would change the clutch and while you are at it i would also change the clutch arm and bush as they are prone to seizing causing a stiff clutch action and dropped peddle and slave cylinder failure , slave is plastic and the ears and white coller snap off, when cold if your car feels like its jerking as you move off i would deffently say it is the clutch arm and not the clutch, but as you will need to remove gear box any way i would renew the clutch and thrust bearing.

It could be a bad clutch cylinder or a bad slave cylinder. If it is either - the clutch would not fully disengage. This would make changing gears very difficult. If it is the slave cylinder the system should loose fluid and start to drip if you pump it repeatedly. If it is the clucth cylinder it should just seep past the plunger seals and the fluid may not lower. If you put the truck in gear without starting it and push the clutch in - can you push the vehicle? If the answer is no - the clutch is not fully disengaged.

Check all your hydraulic connections for seepage . If you find nothing leaking, check where the rod goes into the master cylinder under the dashboard...If still nothing, I'd change the master cyl, as it is likely internally bypassing and permitting the clutch to release. PS it takesa a special "touch" to shift gears without using the clutch, if you cannot do that don't drive it Till you get it will damage synchros and will need to have trans removed and rebuilt. $$$you don't want to spend!!!
