SOURCE: removing the clutch

I have done this work and its not that hard. You really need access to a garage lift so you can work under the vechile. You can then remove the gearbox after the exhaust. Remove the shift levers and boots but didn't remove anything from the engine. Only trouble i had was when i put it back together the 4wheel shift didn't go in properly but thats because it moved when we took it out. There is a switch on the side to indcate its posistion, make sure you dont damage it and connect it up after.
I do have some photo's if that will help, e-mail me rjohnson111uk@yahoo.co.uk and if you need anymore help i'll try to be of service.

SOURCE: how long will it take to repair a 87 suzuki samurai clutch, 4x4

Remove the shifter from inside, two connectors to the sensorson the trans at the firewall, remove 4 bolts holding front driveshaft to the front diff, slide rear section of front driveshaft out of the splines, remove 4 bolts holding rear driveshaft to transfer case and slide the driveshaft out of the transmission tailshaft, remove the two starter bolts ( hardest part of the job), leave the starter in the engine bay with the wires still attached, remove the clutch ARM from the transmission, remove the rear transmission mount (4 12mm bolts) support the transmission on a jack, put another jack in from of the engine to pitch the engine so the rear is sagging down slightly (this is so you have enough clearance to remove the transmission), remove the four 14 mm bellhousing bolts (remember the longer one goes onto the passenger side top) tip the tailshaft up to the floor of the Sammy and slide it to the rear as far as possible, let the front come down slowly ( it will barley rub the pressure plate but not enough to hurt anything) presto its out, replace the clutch assembly and grease throwout and transmission splines the reverse these steps. I have done 3 of these and accomplished my last one in 4 hours total. No need to remove the exhaust, transfer case or engine as others have stated on numerous write ups. You will need two 12mm combo wrenches, one 14mm combo wrench, one 3/8 drive ratchet with 12mm shortwell socket, a couple extensions for said ratchet, one small pair of pliers (to hold the clutch cable while adjusting) and a hammer to gently tap the clutch arm onto the splines.

Why my sidekick wont shift to any gear


please post year, for best help, please.
ok, its a real Samurai or Sammy with kick engine, (so common latter)
I will answer for real Suzuki Sidekick.
the car came in many forms. 4wd, 2wd a, 3sp, 4sp and 5sp M/T
sold in all permutations.
but since you used the any gear, word.
ill roll dice on A/T automatic transmission, my 3 cars are all M/T.

The A/T. will not 3sp chase many ways to not shift. its 100% mech.
and all you can do is check levels.
the A./T 4speed, is electronic shifted, (know it well) and the TCM
shifts car no matter what. and has scan codes to tell you what is wrong, and has limphome mode to still shift and skips 1 gear.
the M/T 5speed, has a bad shifter tip plastic, if it cant shift.
if you force it in to 1st (ask how) and car dont mover, the clutch is bad.
ask how to go father, we can easy.

I have a suzuki xl-7 2005 manual and is hard to change gear does this mean the clutch is gone or is there a easy fix


This is pretty easy to trouble shoot.
first off , assume it's a simple easy fix. it can be.
not 8 to 10 hours labor jerking the tranny and 4wd parts.etc.
hard to change gears can mean many things.
1: cant select. this is common, the shifter tip has 2 plastic parts
that cause the shifter to do 2 things, its loose as heck and
cause , SELECTION failure. that is ,you can not move the shifting
forks inside the tranny. is the reason, this is shifter failure.
Suzuki sells the parts, ,shown in link below.

2: hard to shift , #2 is , but you can not force any gears
reverse is the most difficult. and if you try hard enough
the transmission grinds. this is clutch failure. (1 of 2, ways)
3: if the clutch is failing, called DRAG. (not slip, no noise or chatter)
you can jackup the rear of car, at the axle place 2 jack stands
under said axle housing ends and now you can shift.
proving a bad clutch as it now shifts but in a clunky way.

ok, now we are in the Dragging bad clutch fails.
the first easy fix, is easy.
is called,a "bad clutch actuator"
on early cars this part is a cable (replace the cable)
on later cars the actuator is a MC/slave hydraulic pedal sys..
The cable clutch you do...the.. do the 1 inch test. see link.
on Hyd. do the 3/4 inch test. see the link.

this proves the clutch is good or bad , every time.
if the clutch lever fails to move the correct distance.
no clutch can work, fix the actuator first.
this page gets them all.

Broken shifter cable, how do i repair it


Put park brake on or block wheels, and shift into neutral (if possible), If not go to tranny and pop the cable off the tranny lever (pry off with screwdriver). Turn tranny shift lever, until it clicks twice, leave here for later adjustment. Follow the cable to the adjuster, pull out the flat steel retainer clip, pinch the sides to remove cable from bracket. Remove upper covers below the steering wheel. Remove kick panel below steering colomn. Remove cable from steering wheel shifter assembly (pry off and remove clip same as at tranny). Remove the side kick panel and follow cable along floor. You may find it easier to remove the driver seat (4 nuts on floor and wiring). Pull cable thru floor and replace. Reverse procedure to install. Lock the cable and clip at steering colomn, but leave the clip off at tranny. The tranny should still be in neutral. Now turn key to run and shift the shifter into neutral. At the tranny side cable there is a white square button, press in and lock cable to lever. install retainer clip. move shifter thru ranges and ensure it locks in park. Readjust if needed by pressing button and moving shifter lever on tranny.

My 86 sami lack speed and power


The samurai tranny shifter's wear down and the shift pin tends to break cause slop in the shifter and making it harder to get into 5th gear.

88 Suzuki samurai 4x4 will not engage.


The shifter sheet is worn out or not even there (its rubber) from multiple uses. It eventually decades.

Tons of Samurai enthusiast retailers carry them. Lowrangeoffroad, Petroworks, Trail Tough, and more.

They also carry the one for the tranny shifter.

1988 suzuki samurai WONT MOVE


First thing just try to push or pull the 4x4 lever if you get it to move and it feels like it went into some gear try to drive the truck.If this works look on the shifter for the 4x4 and put it in 2 wheel drive (H2 is two wheel drive,H4 is 4x4 high,and L4 is 4x4 low range).Make sure you have the clutch depresed when you try to move the 4x4 lever.If you try this stuff with no fix try and look for clutch adjustment on the transmision you may need to adjust it or your clutch is bad.
