1999 2.0L TD Suzuki vitara the clutch pedal was low and grumpy when pressed and hard to select 1st or reverse. plenty of movement in clutch slave arm and no fluid leaks to be seen.so i removed the gearbox to fit new clutch hoping its a pressure plate? but found the end or pilot bearing had collapsed with only 4 ball bearings found rolling about.Could the missing bearings be the problem as they could of worked them self into the pressure plate springs & so on thanks

Pilot bearing (pressed into flywheel) or release bearing (presses against clutch pressure plate)?
Regardless, the repair is the same. Replace clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing & pilot bearing. Most flywheels are available or as part of a complete kit, minimum is to inspect & resurface flywheel when replacing clutch assymbly.

Hard to press clucth /hiace 2014 .while to engage hard to press clutch


check the clutch operation if it is hydraulic--press the pedal and see if the slave cylinder movers the throw out arm
It suggests a problem with the clutch master cylinder or a failed hose in the system that blocks off when the pressure is applied
hard to select the gears indicates that the pressure plate is not releasing
if it is a cable operation then replace the cable assembly as it is jamming up inside.

2001 grand vitara trys to move when clutch is down


Hi Paul, Sounds as if you have a clutch problem. First thing to do is check the fluid level in the clutch reservoir. If it is low as I suspect, it must be leaking somewhere. The only places it can leak are from the master cylinder, slave cylinder or the pipe. Determine where the leakage is and attend to it. It very well may mean replacing one or both cylinders. Bleed the system by keeping the reservoir full at all times. (You will need the help of a friend) and then get under the vehicle and open the bleed nipple and let the fluid drip into a container until the flow has no bubbles. Close the nipple. Press the clutch pedal and if the pedal feels firm and does its job of disengaging the clutch, your done. If not pump the pedal twice and and tell your friend to get under (what are friends for?) With the pedal held flat to the floor, you say in a very load voice "Open, Close!" Pump twice again and continue until the clutch feels correct. If the clutch continues failing to disengage when fully depressed, try adjusting it. Look under the dash and at the top end of the pedal arm is an adjustable rod. loosen the locking nut and turn the rod, extending it until free play in the pedal is back to normal, a little under an inch. When finished do not change clothing, as you would like everyone to know that you are a super mechanic, and the same for your friend. Take a trip into town and buy two soda's (no booze while driving, but your friend can have.) Chat loudly about the job so everyone can hear you. If the plan works, we'll be here waiting to give more advise when you set up your repair shop. Best regards John

2001 Suzuki vitara clutch pedal went to the floor and wont come back up. It's like its stuck in perpetual neutral. Slave gear? Where is it.


Check the fluid level on the clutch master in the engine compartment. The clutch slave is located down on the bottom by your transmission.

How to bleed slave cylinder for 1997 suzuki sidekick


Hi if the sidekick is the same as the uk vitara then they don't have a slave cylinder just a clutch cable with a nut near the end to adjust it. If its like a grand vitara they have got a slave cylinder, just crack the bleed nipple off put one end of a small pipe on the end of the nipple and drop the other end in a bottle that is roughly half full of break and clutch fluid, ask someone to pump the clutch pedal until no more air bubbles are coming out then tighten the bleed nipple back up. make sure to keep a check on brake fluid levels while doing this.

Hi On driving a Suzuki Vitara JLX 96 P Reg


Sounds like a clutch problem to me.
So, with the engine off, can you select all gears? If yes, your gearbox is probably OK.
And now with the engine idling, can you select any gears with out crunching? If this is difficult, then try this next test in an area where movement forward or backwards won't be a problem.
With the engine OFF, foot ON the clutch, the handbrake OFF, and in 1st gear, start the car. BE READY TO TURN IT OFF.
If the car moved forward as you cranked the engine, then your clutch is not adjusted properly or has worn out. That is more-than-likely the smell you got before - burnt clutch disc from it slipping.
You can drive it, but every time you want to start off, you'll have to turn the engine off, select 1st then start the engine. Accelerate slowly, making sure the revs don't rise faster that you're speeding up, and change gear by judging engine revs between gears.
Don't keep driving it as it is, as you WILL have gearbox problems if you don't fix the clutch.

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.
