Clutch problem the clutch pedal won't return back UP, why ?


indicates no fluid in the system or air in the system
in a hydraulic it requires fluid to make the clutch disengage and also fluid to make the pedal return from the pressure of the pressure plate
if it is a cable clutch, replace the cable as the inner cable is breaking and jamming in the case

Clutch pedal sitting on floor/no return.


It may be the clutch assy. but before I did that I would check the cable out as it seems strange the pedal would stay on the floor even if the clutch went out. There should be a return spring on the pedal.

Plastic smell and smoke


The plastic smell is most likely the friction material on the clutch due to overheating. A defective throwout bearing or broken clutch spring can cause this issue. Excessive heat in the clutch system may also damage parts that would effect pedal height.
*Remove the inspection cover on the the transmission and look for signs of black dust, broken clutch springs or metal shavings, and discoloration on the flywheel.

Clutch get stuck at the bottom


Depends on what you are driving. Sounds like pressure plate springs or clutch return spring. Some brands use hydraulic boost cylinders which can effect travel length.

Another thing is if the clutch is engaged or not. Could have broken cable or linkage too! You need to identify the product.

Don't know where my return spring goes on my 71 firebird for the clutch.


You should have a heavy return spring under the dash on the pedal and a lighter one on the clutch linkage with one end hooking beside the rod pushing onto the clutch pivot. (some have a small hole for the spring) (The clutch pivot is the part going into the bell housing holding the bearing) and the other end hooking on something that will keep the pivot and bearing away from the clutch when you are not pushing the clutch pedal.
TIP. When sitting stopped for any length of time with the engine running......(and more important with heavy duty clutches)....put the vehicle in neutral and keep your foot OFF the clutch.

How to relace clutch cable on 1995 saab se 900 turboon saab 900se


1. Remove the battery.
2. Remove the clutch cable end from the clutch arm end at the wire stop.
3. Slide out the rubber doughnut from the gearbox housing which holds the clutch cable
4. Move the distribution box nut and the alarm pin attached to it (some modules)
5. Disconnect the clutch cable holder from the fender and the data link holder.
6. Remove the drivers lower panel below the steering wheel and remove the air duct as well as the knee shield.
7. Slide out the fuse box holder and ICE Box (should be a black box with many wires going to it). You can remove the instrument cluster at this point but you can also do this without removing the cluster with a little patience
8. Move the pedal spring to one side and remove the eye catch for the cable.
9. Remove the clutch cable by pulling it out from the engine compartment
10. Reinstall in the reverse. Saab actually came out with a bulletin which Needed one to install two washers at the back of the new cable instead of one. The factory cable comes with one but you can remove the 2nd washer off the old cable and install it on the new cable so two exist. This helps take up excessive pedal slack.
