Clutch stays down. Slowly will take of with clutch fully pressed. Does not slip.dont understand


It sounds as though the clutch pressure plate has become weak.

When you press the clutch pedal the release/throwout bearing presses against the centre of the clutch pressure plate. This causes the metal 'fingers' -the springs- on the pressure plate to flex and release pressure on the driven plate - momentarily disconnecting the drive from engine to gearbox.

The link below is of generic clutch images
how clutch works Google Search

A weak pressure plate isn't fully releasing the driven plate. If you're going to do any replacing of parts - a clutch should be replaced in 3 units: Pressure plate, driven plate and release/throwout bearing.

Clutch relaeasing late


Now you have gone off and confused me. Is it RELEASING late or is it ENGAGING late? Releasing at the top of the pedal is releasing early and engaging late. When you replaced your clutch, did you resurface or replace the flywheel? Makes a BIG difference. I usually recommend master cylinder replacement at the same time the clutch, pressure plate, nflywheel, throwout bearing, pilot bushing or bearing and slave cylinder is replaced. That is the only way to guarantee a trouble-free clutch relacement. The original clutches usually last over 100.000 miles (depending on how it is driven) The replacement clutches will not last nearly that long if a COMPLETE job is not done.

I get undersold on my clutch jobs all the time. But I also get many of those customers back when the other shops do a poor job (clutch, pressure plate, and maybe, a slave cylinder) and the car needs a clutch again in just a few months. It has been a LONG time since I have had one of my clutch jobs come back to haunt me. Sometimes you get just what you are willing to pay for.

I have replaced complete clutch system minus the flywheel... worked great for 1 day and now cant get it to disengage completly... good pressure on pedal, throw-out is moving... 1993 chevy k2500 4x4 reg...


I am going to assume that you checked all your linkage to insure all is well. So now I am going to take a stab in the dark and GUESS that when you relaced the disk and pressure plate you must have inadvertently installed the disk backwards. This would have positioned the springs against the flywheel still allowing enough disk, flywheel, and pressure plate contact to function for a short period of time.

Direction for clutch relacement of 2004 xterra 2x4


Clutch Assy Service, is seldom done in your driveway

It always involves removing a very heavy transmission

Having the flywheel machined and new parts installed

Then there are hydraulics & throw out brg to replace etc.

Renult megane o3-19-DCI Replacing clutch plate dont know which side to presure plate.


Hi,
look at the clutch plate centre hub. The side which fits to the pressure plate is generally raised further than the side which fits to the flywheel side if you have the old pressure plate and clutch plate, look at the pattern on the clutch plate, it will be emulated on the pressure plate..

Hope that you have had the flywheel 'skimmed' to ensure good contact with the clutch plate. It would be a good thing to also check the spigot or nose bearing / bushing in the flywheel. All should be replaced as a set, pressure plate, spigot bearing,clutch plate, release / throwout bearing and the flywheel skimmed.or replaced if necessary.

Happy motoring.

5 speed hard time shifting and it has a new clutch.


Replacing the clutch plate only sometimes doesn't help you should have replaced the clutch pressure plate too, best is to fit the clutch pro-kit (clutch plate, clutch pressure plate and release bearing).
I guess now you will have to just replace the clutch pressure plate and the release bearing.

if you have just instaled a new clutch you need to make sure the clutch disk has not ben instaled back wards and all the bolts holding the pressure plate are torqued evenly if eather is not corect the slave cyl will extend but not relace the clutch, if you have some one step on the clutch and it moves 1 to 2 in the problem is in the pressure plate or clutch disk,
