    oh about 6 hours labor and $300 in parts for a good quality clutch like Center force, remember you must have the flywheel machined.

The vehicle must be raised on four jackstands. Disconnect the battery pos(+) terminal.The driveshaft has to be removed . Then remove the three starter mounting bolts, this will allow acess to the main feed wire to the starter, remove the 1/2 inch nut and lock washer and remove the wire.Place the starter to the side. Next you'll need to remove the rear tranny mounting bolt. Then remove the crossmember from the frame. This is where you'll wish you hadn't started this job. You must support the tranny while sliding the crossmember out. This can easily be accomplished by placing a small floorjack centered under the tranny pan with a 1 foot by 1 foot square piece of plywood on the jack lift cradle.Next you'll want to remove and put aside any sensors (back-up, speed, gear position...) if utililized from the tranny. Remove all bell housing bolts. remove the slave unit from the bell housing. Very carefully roll the tranny back a small amount and lower the jack a small amount. Continue this until the tranny is free of the pilot bearing.Lower and remove the tranny. Remove the pressure plate in a rotation motion as not to put too much strain on any one single bolt. Remove the pressure plate being careful not to be hit by the clutch disk which will now be free. Check the condition of the flywheel for cracks and glazing. This will determine if it needs to be turned or replaced. Check the pilot bushing with your finger to make sure it turns smoothly and freely.Then......put it back together with your new parts. Any questions? Good luck, Dana

Does hydraulic slave cylinder bearing need greasing?


Hi Sheila:
The clutch slave cylinder pushes against a throwout arm
The throwout arm is a lever and it pushes against the throwout bearing which thenpresses against the clutch plate and dis-engages the clutch.
Throwout bearings are typically sealed units that last until they fail, at which time they get replaced.
You should not have to worry about greasing it.
Hope this helps.
Cheers.

Throwout bearing repair


Well, the gearbox has to come off. The bearing probably needs replacement rather than repair. Unless the clutch is very new, you may as well replace it too, and the pressure plate. Examine the throwout fork very closely for cracks, as they can fail that way.

Jeep wrangle squeals when clutch is pressed.


your throwout bearing is shot, and while your in there you should replace the clutch and pressure plate as the parts are relatively cheap but the process of dropping the transmission is rather involved. im not speculating it is definitely your throwout bearing

I have a 2002 ford mustang gt.. Replaced the clutch bout 3 months ago.. New flywheel throwout bearing.. The whole works. Even purchased a clutch adjuster kit with firewall adjuster.. Car rides good and...


The cutch pedal should have about an inch of free play before contacting the pressure plate. otherwise throw out bearing will run continuously . It wont last long. Adjust at firewall for 1 inch of free play at the top of pedal stroke.

How to change clutch in a 2000 mustang v6


First you go to mechanics school so you know the basics on safety etc.
Now you can block the car up in the air and remove the driveline and all electrical and mechanical connections from the transmission. Next support the engine while you unbolt the transmission from the engine. using your transmission jack slide the transmission back far enough to get easy access to the pressure plate. remove the bolts holding the pressure plate in place and remove the old clutch. Of course you got a new clutch, pressure plate and throwout bearing right? you may need a pocket bearing for the tip of the transmission input shaft as well. installing is the reverse of removing though you will have to consult the manual for torque specifications and you will need to make sure the clutch is centered before you bolt the pressure plate back down.
OR you could take it to a transmission shop and have them do it for a couple hundred bucks.,

I was bleeding my clutch now my clutch pedal stuck to the floor on a 1995 f 150


Most modern clutches are hydraulic. It may be that either the clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder are stuck or some sort of restriction in the line. Or, it may be that the throwout bearing or pressure plate have some sort of issue (this requires pulling the tranny and looking at the clutch, pressure plate (plate that rides against the clutch with springs to engage the clutch) and throwout bearing (bearing on the arm that presses against the pressure plate to engage the clutch).

Of course, I am assuming you have checked for any outside restrictions that would not allow the pivot arm to retract (missing spring or piece of ice or debris stuck in there).

Just some ideas :)

Grinding sound when I start my manual trany f150 1996, like a centrifugal cluch catching. worse if truck sits for a week or two.


Is the noise from the motor or transmission area? Try to localise the source of noise.
Could be a dry clutch throwout bearing.
If it is, the noise will change when clutch pedal is pushed down.
Could also be a failed pressure plate.
Get the clutch / transmission inspected if it continues.
