  1. Remove the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  2. Insert a pilot shaft or an old input shaft into the center of the clutch disc, pressure plate, and the pilot bearing in the crankshaft.
  3. With the pilot tool supporting the clutch disc, loosen the pressure plate bolts gradually and in a crisscross pattern.
  4. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc.
  5. Clean the transmission and clutch housing. Clean the flywheel surface with a non-oil based solvent. Wash your hands before installing or handling the clutch assembly parts. Hold the clutch disc by the center hub only.

Before assembly, slide the clutch disc up and down on the transmission input shaft to check for any binding. Remove any rough spots with crocus cloth and then lightly coat the shaft with Lubriplate.
  1. To remove the throwout bearing assembly: Remove the return clip and take out the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing.
  2. To replace the throwout arm use a / 16 in. punch, knock out the throwout shaft spring pin and remove the shaft, springs, and the center lever.
  3. Do not immerse the throwout bearing in solvent; it is permanently lubricated. Blow and wipe it clean. Check the bearing for wear, deterioration, or burning. Replace the bearing if there is any question about its condition.
  4. Check the shafts, lever, and springs for wear and defects. Replace them if necessary.
  5. If you hadn't planned on replacing the clutch disc, examine it for the following before reusing it. Loose rivets. Burned facing. Oil or grease on the facing. Less than 0.3mm left between the rivet head and the top of the facing.
  6. Check the pressure plate and replace it if any of the following conditions exist: Scored or excessively worn. Bent or distorted diaphragm spring. Loose rivets.
  7. Insert the control lever into the clutch housing. Install the two return springs and the throwout shaft.
  8. Lock the shift lever to the shaft with the spring pin.
  9. Fill the shaft oil seal with multipurpose grease.
  10. Install the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing. Install the return clip.
  11. Grease the carrier groove and inner surface.
  12. Lightly grease the clutch disc splines.

The clutch is installed with the larger boss facing the transmission.
  1. Support the clutch disc and pressure plate with the pilot tool.
  2. Turn the pressure plate so that its balance mark aligns with the notch in the flywheel.
  3. Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel bolts head-tight. Using a torque wrench and, working in a crisscross pattern, tighten the bolts to 11-15 ft. lbs.
  4. Install the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  5. Adjust the clutch as described in the following information.

My throw out bearins went bad can i just replace them


Throw out bearing? Do you mean the clutch release bearing, aka throw-out bearing? There is only one in a clutch system, and, yes, they can be replaced, without replacing the cluytch disc or the pressure plate. But if it is making noise, it is good practice to do the whole clutch replacement while the transmission is removed. If your budget won't allow that, at least check the clutch friction plates for wear.

Clutch bearing noise


If your talking about the "throw out" bearing, then the only repair is to replace it. Depending on the mileage of the vehicle it might be better to replace all the components while your have the transmission out, since transmission removal is required for this service. Clutch "kits" should have the clutch disc, pressure plate and throw out bearing along with a pilot bearing/sleeve if it is applicable to your vehicle. Cost of kit can vary but should be about $125.00-$150.00

How to install a clutch kit on my 1994 mitsubishi mighty max


Disconnect the battery, disconnect the Hydraulic Line from the Slave Cylinder, Remove the Starter (2 bolts, 2 wires. Bolts are 14mm, 1 wire is 12mm, 1 plugs in), Remove the Driveshaft(s) (4 12mm bolts) Remove the 6 bolts from the bellhousing (4 are 14mm, 2 are 10mm)
Remove the bolt from the Transfer Case Mount, 12mm (only if it's a 4WD, if it's 2WD this doesn't apply), remove the 2 bolts that hold the Transmission Mount to the Crossmember (12mm or 14mm, it varies)
Slide the transmission back on the crossmember, away from the engine, I recommend running a ratchet strap across the frame to balance the transmission.
Remove the Pressure Plate from the Flywheel (Six 10mm bolts), Inspect the Pilot Bearing (if it needs replaced, you'll need to remove the Flywheel which is held on with six 18mm bolts, drive out the old bearing and drive in the new one, reinstall the flywheel, using Threadlocker on the bolts, torque the bolts to 100 ft lbs) Install the new clutch disc and Pressure Plate, with the centering tool inserted through the disc into the pilot bearing. Use thread locker on the pressure plate bolts and torque them to 20 ft lbs. Remove the centering/alignment tool after you've bolted it together
Remove old Throw Out bearing from input shaft on the transmission and slide the new one on. Slide the Transmission forward (make sure the input shaft slides into the pilot bearing, don't force the transmission into place or you could damage the clutch disc or break the input shaft) Torque the Bellhousing Bolts to 40 ft lbs (4 14mm bolts), Torque the 2 10mm bolts to 14 ft lbs, Install the Starter (torque bolts to 23 ft lbs), Reconnect Hydraulic Line to Slave Cylinder. Torque Transmission Mount Bolts to 30 ft lbs.
Reinstall Driveshafts, torque bolts on flange/yoke to 40 ft lbs. Fill Clutch Master Cylinder with DOT-3 Brake & Clutch Fluid, Open Bleeder Screw on Slave Cylinder and bleed the air out of the system, close bleeder screw.
Reconnect the wires to the Starter, Reconnect the battery.

I drive a 04 mustang v6 and when i push on clutch it makes a loud squeling noise and the clutch gets hard 2 push


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.

Which side of the clutch does throw out bearing go on


The throw out bearing will be on the outside of the clutch assemble. What it does is push against the fingers in the center of the pressure plate.

How to repair cluch disc suzuki mini truck


The clutch is a friction disk up against the flywheel and pressed against it by the clutch pressure place. So you have to remove the transmission in order to gain access.
For that you:
disconnect battery
drop drive shaft
remove speedometer cable or wire, shift and clutch linkage
support engine and transmission separately.
remove rear support
remove engine to transmission bolts, cover plate, and starter
slide transmission back until input shaft clears clutch pressure plate ring
lower transmission.
remove pressure plate evenly and slowly

Then you inspect for wear on the pilot bushing the input shaft rests on, the friction disc is assumed to be too thin, the pressure plate should not show heat damage or scratching, and the throw out bearing should not be noisy.

Installation is reverse except you use a fake plastic input shaft in order to firmly locate the friction disk in the right place, when bolting pressure plate on. Remember to tighten evenly, diagonally, and not to break off any bolts by over tightening. Remove fake plastic input shaft before continuing then.

My son is getting ready to replace his clutch on his 1992 Jeep Wrangler 6 cyl 4.0 l when he returns from Afganistan soon and wants to know if there is any other "stuff" he should replace at the same time...


Always replace the 'throw-out' bearing (which pushes directly on the clutch pressure plate) even though it may be good now. There is a bronze pilot bearing in the end of the crankshaft that the shaft end of the transmission slides into and tends to wear after long use. If badly worn, it can cause minor vibration sometimes after a gear shift. To remove the bearing, you will need to rent or borrow a 'slide hammer' tool with a twin-fingered puller adapter. Make sure the flywheel surface is reasonably smooth and no debris clinging to the surface. This is important if the clutch was 'chattering' before when engaging. Buy a plastic clutch-disc alignment tool that you use during the installation of the disc and pressure plate. Hope this helps!

We just got a 1985 F350, we need to replace the clutch and not sure exactly how to go about it...we have the transmission down and the clutch kit just need to know where to go from there. Thanks to anyone...


The first thing to do is to have the flywheel re-surfaced because a warped flywheel will cause the clutch to chatter or shudder when you let up the clutch pedal, and also be certain that the pilot bearing is replaced, it can be difficult to remove the pilot bearing from the end of the crankshaft and you will most likely need to obtain a good pilot bearing puller to remove it.

Clean the bell-housing and the rear of the engine block while the flywheel is being re-surfaced, and be sure that all of the old clutch material and dust has been cleaned from the bell-housing and the rear of the engine block, and contamination from an old clutch disk will lead to early clutch failure.

After the flywheel has been installed and torqued down, then you will need to mount the clutch disk and the pressure-plate assembly together onto the flywheel, and be sure that the clutch disk is facing the right way (usually the spring hub will go towards the pressure-plate assembly), and then start to install the pressure-plate assembly bolts but only hand tighten them for now. After the bolts have been started then use the clutch disk alignment tool that should have come with the clutch kit to align the clutch disk with the pilot bearing, and when you have it aligned so that the alignment tool easily slips through the clutch disk and into the pilot bearing, then tighten down the bolts to the pressure-plate assembly one turn at a time in a criss-cross pattern until the pressure-plate assembly is flush with the flywheel and then you can torque down the pressure-plate assembly bolts. This is a critical step and the better aligned that you get the disk and pilot bearing, and the easier it is to remove and replace the alignment tool, the easier it will be to install the transmission, and the transmission input shaft should slip smoothly through the clutch disk and into the pilot bearing and not have any difficulties mounting up to the engine, and if the transmission hangs up when you are installing it and and the transmission input shaft does not go straight in through the clutch disk and into the pilot bearing, it can damage the clutch hub and the clutch will chatter or shudder when you let the clutch pedal up, and it will shorten the life of the clutch.

After the clutch has been aligned then install the throw-out/release bearing onto the transmission input shaft collar and the throw-out/release bearing fork, and use a lithium based grease on the pivot points of the throw-out/release bearing fork and where the fork contacts the throw-out/release bearing, and if it did not come greased, then lightly grease the inside of the throw-out/release bearing with a lithium based grease and do not over do it on the grease, you want just enough grease to keep the throw-out bearing and the input shaft collar lubricated but still have a smooth operation to it, and you do not want to damage the clutch from oil or grease contamination as this will cause the new clutch disk to slip.

The transmission can now be installed into the vehicle and be careful not to hang the transmission input shaft on the clutch disk or the clutch disk will be damaged. I hope that this information will help you to replace that clutch with a proper quality repair that you will get the most out of.
