Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Hi, I have a rayco 1625 that I am replacing the clutch on. I've been supplied a 1635 clutch. It fitted but when fitting the clutch fan I had to add a thin washer so the fan does not hit the clutch pla

Now that I've fitted a new clutch to my grinder, on startup motor just binds. How do I now remove clutch shaft bolt as when I try to remove it, it simply slips the clutch. I need to know how I can hold the clutch shaft still so I can remove clutch shaft bolt please. Regards Ben.

SOURCE: Steering Binding

Hello Goldwinger.
Yes it could be an axle, It could also be the strut tower The strut bearing is on top of your strut and could be a problem I have seen it before and also the Axle do that, I don't think it would be the steering rack because I think it would do that either way you turn the steering wheel. I would stick with your first thought. Axle, sure sounds like an axle, The Clicking is usually the First indication of that. So I would take it out and check it or just replace it and I think that will solve your problem. If not get back to me and when I get in from the Shop I will check back here and see if you got it or not. Thanks Goldwinger and hope that helps you out some what. Bear001

SOURCE: rear brake to remove replace disk and service due binding

Preliminaries Do 1 wheel at a time Use a jackstand on the wheel you are working on (safety First) Remove the tire on the selected wheel
The Brake caliper is usually held on by 2 bolts. Some of the bolts are Allen wrench type, usually about ¼ inch or 5/16 inch. Remove and the complete brake caliper can be lifted off the rotor. The pads can now be removed. Before installing the new pads you must first return the pad piston to their original position in the caliper. Open the hood of the engine compartment and remove the cover on the master cylinder. This allow the brake fluid to be returned to the master cylinder. To return the pad piston to the original position you will need a C clamp and a flat piece of metal like a small flat file. Put the flat piece of metal on the piston and use the C clamp to put pressure on the piston. Tighten the C clamp slowly and you will see the piston slowly retract into the caliper body. Now you can insert the new pads into the caliper. Mount the caliper over the rotor and reinstall the 2 bolts.

SOURCE: Binding when making tight turns

duty solenoid that controls transfer clutches may be at fault,check the obvious first starting with level and condition of trans fluid if its ok make sure all tire sizes are correct and same,different tire sizes can cause binding in turns, all tires need to same circumfrence,if this is ok there is a empty fuse slot i believe in fuse box under the hood,place fuse in slot marked FWD,by putting a 15amp fuse in this slot it forces trans into front wheel drive a warning light on the dash will illuminate FWD,drive the car in your culdesac and hpefully binding wont occur signaling a problem with your transfer case either the clutches or that duty solenoid,the check engine lamp is probably not related to this concern good luck!

SOURCE: wheels making binding noises when turning

I have this same problem with my 1996 Subaru Legacy 2.2 Wagon. There is a Subaru Service Bulletin #16-62-97 dated 5/16/97 with a Subject entitled "Transfer Clutch Binding And/Or Bucking On Turns". There is also an important follow-up to it numbered 16-64-99 dated 09/15/99 entitled "Revised Transfer Clutch Assembly Replacement Procedures" that should also be used should you decide to go ahead with the transfer clutch replacement.

I just got these Service Bulletins from my mechanic who got them from a Subaru dealer.
The estimate was about $700-$1000 to fix. This is more than likely the cause of the binding problem on slow, sharp turns.

SOURCE: Porsche 944 drive shaft torx key bolts

I ran into a similar problem when working on the bolts that hold the 4 piston calipers together on my BMW 2002Tii, that the Torx was too small and rounding off the inside edges of the bolt head. Being unable to find a bit that was between the x5 and next size up x0 torx, I decided to consult an expert. After going to the service department of my local dealership and talking to some of the older and more knowledgeable guys, we determined that the easiest fix is to take a cheap torx bit and grind down the tip of it so the bit engages a little bit more, since the bit tapers towards the end this would give much more of a positive engagement. Worked great after 3 minutes on a belt sander.

2001 CRD Grand Voyager - clutch won't disengage.

Is there any fluid on the ground near the transmission? It's possible the clutch actuating cylinder has failed. If it was air in the line you would have noticed it the day you got it back. The master cylinder is on the firewall next to the brake master. You can add fluid if it's low. If it's empty then there may be a loose fitting or the bleeder screw on the actuating cylinder may be loose too.

How do you change the fan clutch in a 325i?

You need to buy or make a tool to hold the pully from turning while you unscrew the fan from the water pump.
I went to the hardware store and bought a strap of steel about 1 1/2" wide and 36" long and about 1/8" thick. I drilled two holes in it sized to just fit over the heads of the 10mm bolts that hold on the pulley. I ground a half-moon dent in the edge to fit around the shaft. Note that the bolts in the pulley are arranged in a rectangle rather than a square. You want to fit across the bolt heads on the long side of the rectangle. You will need to bend a couple of mild curves in the tool to fit around radiator hoses etc.
Then use a narrow jaw wrench to grip the big hex to unscrew the fan from the water pump. Important! It is left-handed thread. I bought a very narrow adjustable wrench just for this task.
I think you will need to at least loosen the fan shroud to get the fan to wiggle out, but I don't recall for sure.
It is unusual to need to replace the fan clutch all by itself. Typically, people are tearing down to replace the radiator or water pump and notice that the fan clutch is loose or leaking oil or both, so they replace that as well.

02 gmc envoy. was trowing codes for the accelerator position sensor, throttle position sensor, fuel tank pressure sensor, 1635 5volt circut 1, and fan clutch codes. Fan clutch replaced about 30 days...

Hi, the clutch itself is driven by a separate circuit. If anything is pulling down PCM power, it would have to be the fan relay coil. Perhaps the relay has shorted from the coil to the contact. Recommend you swap out the fan relay. Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I need instructions to install a clutch fan on 1987 bmw

The fan/clutch assy has left hand thread. Loosen by turning clockwise.

Remove radiator top shroud & air cleaner assy. to gain access.
Remove engine cooling fan by holding the belt drive pulley with a suitable flat bar tool (that fits over the top of the drive pulley attachment bolts), then using a suitable flat spanner to unscrew the fan clutch assy (clockwise). When re-fitting, tighten clutch nut to 30 ftlb.
You may need to use a bit of ingenuity in making the flat bar holding tool, unless you are able to procure the BMW tool #11.5.030.
Good luck

Water pump replacement

Get a wrench that fits on the fan clutch. Most auto part stores will have a fan clutch removal tool.

It works the best if you put the wrench onto the fan clutch and then hit it with a hammer in the dirction to take the clutch off. Sometimes it might take multiple tries to break the clutch loose.
