Mg Rover Manual 1600 1800cc Turbo

I have had clutch plate failure twice @ 100,000 and 120,000. Where motor cut out and coasted to a stop. Now at 126,000km Clutch pedal falls to floor. Start motor, all OK. Now start engine, lift pedal a fraction (2-3mm) - car jolts forward - I Brake, engine stalls. I cannot drive it. Please advise what is wrong? I have had this in other older cars when there is a shortage of Brake Fluid, But Hand Book does not explain. Also no warning light on Dashboard. TOM KIRKLAND, Johannesburg, Gauteng, RSA.

It might be a broken finger on the pressure plate for the clutch and that is allowing the pedal to stay on the floor and not return to the top.

Should the release bearing on a 1275 midget be touching the pressure plate when not in use

No it shouldn't touch. You might want to check and see if the clutch plate was installed the right way. If clutch plates are installed backwards, this will cause the tongs on the pressure plate to be pushed out further towards the bearing. And will squeal.

remove the inspection cover under the torque converter and check for failed flexi-plate drive. The plate that the torque converter is connected to that is attached to the crank shaft. Check the torque converter control (TCC) clutch solenoid/servo for failure.

Will a 1.8 20v gearbox off a passat fit on a 1.8 20v turbo automatic to make it manual?

yes but you would need to alighn a manual linkage and parts of the loom would need to be replaced as well as ecu etc so its not worth the trouble and then the clutch pedal should have studs and fixing positions on the chassis already but the plate to allow the hydraulic clutch pipe through might need cutting.The flywheel will need replacing and the clutch plate etc.

Mazda 626 2.2L Turbo 1989 - Alternator - Fuel Pump

Hi am just up the road on the SSC, it is easier to remove the alternator from underneath the vehicle & if you look under the carpet under the rear seat there is a plate which gives you access to the fuel pump cover in the tank. The pump can be accessed from there. If you want the workshop Manuals I have just uploaded them.
You can download the GD 626 Workshop manual & the Turbo supplement by going to the site.
