Gearbox is noisy until you depress clutch pedal when noise stops. box was re-raced and lasted a couple of days.

probably not the gear box but a failing throw out bearing
the throw out bearings are in constant touch with the pressure plate fingers and so tend to rotate all the time ( unlike cars of old where there was a return spring that pulled the throw out arm away from the pressure plate fingers )
when you apply pressure to the bearing the noise is reduced as the bearing is under load
bearing problems in gear boxes manifest themselves by growling under load --1st 2nd ,3rd,5th where the counter shaft is being pressed sideways as the gears tend to be pushed out of mesh
they can also show up as difficulties in synchro operations, jumping out of gear especially 1st and 4th
another problem that occurs is from assembly where the circlip to retain bearings in the correct place are installed incorrectly and come out of the groove
When the groove is inspected it can be seen that the edges are square but on inspecting the circlip there is a sharp edge and a rolled over edge
many box rebuilders are not aware of the insignificance of this fact and install the circlip with the rounded edge against the groove instead of the sharp edge
This allows the circlip to rise out of the groove under pressure from the load on the bearing and so the bearing moves
in reality the sharp edge has to face the groove edge so that the load presses the circlip into the wall of the groove and so retains the bearing and the bearing is pressing on the rolled edge

I thought I saw a posting for 99 solara clutch assemble price f1 racing act Please reply thank you

'99 car is 15 years old, maybe time for a new clutch. A good shop or home mechanic should be able to work out what's needed. If the hydraulics operate the clutch arm OK then maybe the clutch itself has died. It all depends on the mileage and what sort of drivers its had.

Replacing AC clutch....did not ask if it should be done...asked how to do it. Answer the question that was asked!

Hi:) For Ford Compressor Clutch Removel

Step 1

Locate and remove the compressor clutch retaining bolt. Looking at the compressor clutch you will see a bolt in the center and three bolts along the outer edge. The center bolt is the retaining bolt. The three bolts around the edge of the clutch can only be accessed after removing the clutch, and are only relevant in clutch repair situations. To remove the retaining bolt you need to maintain the clutch position and relieve pressure from bolt head by applying the compressor clutch holding tool with your other hand, or have an assistant hold the tool in place. Do not lose the retaining bolt in case you need to reference it later.

Step 2

Separate and remove the clutch from the shaft of the compressor. Once the retaining bolt is removed, as described in Step 1, simply pry the clutch away from the mounting surface using your hands. If the clutch is a little difficult to remove due to damage or decay then try using a screwdriver to lightly pry the rear side of the clutch away. Spray the area with an auto lubricant and allow it to sit overnight if needed. While removing the clutch do not lose clutch spacers.

Step 3

Pull the snap ring from the clutch pulley using your snap ring pliers. You will now be able to remove the clutch pulley from the compressor. While everything is apart, and before installing your new compressor clutch, clean the area to remove dust or grime.

Reverse steps to install.

How to remove the clutch fan on a 2004 dodge ram

autozone usually has a fan clutch loaner tool set, however in a pinch a strap wrench can hold the pulley and then you have room to fit a decent size crescent wrench. In a hurry you can use an air hammer on an edge (of the nut) going counterclockwise, they also make a neat tool that does basically the same thing, might take a few tries but you will get it.

I need a diagram to show where the clutch pedal spring fits on a 53 focus.the top bit is obvious but i cant find where the bottom hook fits ---.frosty

The clutch pedal return spring fits onto the cicular pressed steel ring that surrounds the clutch linkage. There is a tiny hole on the top edge of the steel pressing. Difficult to see and best found by feeling around top edge but take care as pressed steel has sharp edges.

Replace the bulb in the map/dome/courtesy light

The tear-drop shaped white translucent plastic covers are removable.
Insert a flat tip screwdriver between the inside straight edge of the cover and the console near the oval indentation at the round end of the cover.
Be careful of plastic tab at the round end of the plastic cover.
Gently pry the plastic away and down from the console.
I found that the bulb 578 was the wrong bulb.

Axle pops out of transmission

I would suggest getting a new CV axle. If it it stripped it probably wasnt installed right at some point in time and needs replaced before you end up needing a new tranny.

I need to replace the flasher unit in a Audi A6

Looks like the flasher relay is in the hazard switch assembly. A couple of tabs hold the prettry faux wood decorative plate in. You edge these out from underneath with a couple of small screwdrivers. I found it easier to remove the radio/CD unit (but remember you need the 4-digit code to re-enliven it). My plate shot off along with the switch covers and ashtray cover. (I think I've found most of them). Next you edge out the hazard switch assembly from its bottom. The cheapest place to get a new $30 assembly was (probably made in Mexico, along with the $60 OEM part).
