Good day I replace my old clutch and pressure plate with release bearing, new clutch drive like clutch are slipping(can you please give me the symptoms for when a clutch plate is fitted the wrong way around and which side of the clutch plate faces the flywheel) thank you very much

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.
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.
I would check the old slave cylinder against the new, check they are both the same size and that the new one isn't shorter, failing that it would mean taking the box out again and checking the old units against the new, ie height of pressure plates, depth of release bearing etc. Regards Mike
A new clutch kit or clutch package has 3 major parts: a new clutch disc (the thin plate with the abrasive surface), a new or reconditioned clutch pressure plate, and a new clutch release bearing (aka, throw-out bearing). Approximately $200 for the package. Some people have been known to change only the clutch disc (for about $30), and use their old pressure plate and throw-out bearing. Not recommended-same people have been known to have to go back sooner than later to then replace the pressure plate and release bearing. Do it all once, then you won't have to go back and re-do it.
Have you checked the hydraulic clutch operation? Before condemning the clutch disc for failure, make sure the hydraulic clutch cylinder causes the clutch fork or lever to have sufficient travel to engage the clutch when the pedal is depressed. Also check the clutch fluid reservoir for being full.
The pressure plate and release bearing are worn out. You will need a new clutch disc, pressure plate and release bearing. You can either get an estimate from a garage or replace the parts yourself. To replace you will need a transmission jack and mechanics tools.Remove the drive line. Support the engine with a stand and block of wood. Remove the rear bracket. Position the jack under the transmission and loosen the clutch adjustment. Separate the linkages and release bearing fork . Remove the bolts surrounding the bell housing. Carefully back out and lower the transmission. Remove and replace the clutch assembly, and pilot shaft bushing (brass part at the center of the flywheel). You use a wooden dowel or a pilot shaft tool to orient the clutch disc inside the pressure plate while re-installing.
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.
Lets start with what was replaced : Clutch pressure plate, throwout bearing,pilot bearing,input shaft bearing, was flywheel cut or replaced,Clutch cable or slave cylinder (whatever is applicable,) Lets see what repair shop says. Depending on what they say they did or didn't do we will take it from there.
keep me posted
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.
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.
