Many possible causes.
If it's hydraulic clutch - air in the system.
Broken spring on pressure plate.
Warped clutch disc.
Cracked clutch folk.
If hydraulics ok , transmission has to come out for the rest of it.

Cluch operatng shaft leaver chage vw


are you refering to the clutch fork that connects to the other end of the clutch cable, you will have to drop the gear box as this fork sits over the clutch pressure plate ,and pushes the thrust bearing against the pressure plate tynes so disengages the drive from engine to gearbox, while you've got the box out check the condition of the clutch parts ie thrust bearing,pressure plate spring's,friction plate condition

Cluch issues


You should not have to force it into gear. If your clutch is releasing you should be able to slide it into gear. Here are a couple of possibilities. Your clutch is either hydraulic or cable actuated. Your master or slave cylinder is not extending fully to release the pressure plate from the clutch disk. If you have a cable actuated clutch your cable may have stretched so much that it no longer releases quite enough. I really doubt you need a new clutch if it grabs and holds well after it is in gear. Look into whatever system your vehicle uses to release the clutch be it cable or hydraulic. Wish I could help more , but I can't see it to diagnose it.

Cant select gears in my escort gti, the thrust bearing is winding


this sounds like the throwout breaing is going or gone bad and may have lost it purpose of controling the pressure plate, by not being able to select a gear tells me something has gone bad in the clutch system like the bearing which pushes the pressure plate to release the cluch which allow ****** to stop spinning so that the gear can be selected. the repair for this would be to replace the clutch kit. the clutch pack will come with new bearing clutch disc and pressure plate and if needed a polit bushing, the whining noise was a warning that something in the cluch system was going bad.

99 f550 cluch will not disengage. It sounded like a bearing was squealing when I would push in the cluch. Do you know if this has a hydraulic slave cylinder that may not be disengaging? Is there a throw...


You should be able to remove a cover or inspection plate at the bottom of the ****** bell housing to inspect and visually see the throw out bearing. It sound like it (the throw out bearing) completely went out or damaged the fingers it rests on to disengage the pressure plate. All clutches are pretty much the same. Flywheel bolts to the rear of the crankshaft with a pilot bearing in the center for the input shaft. The clutch disk is sandwiched between the flywheel and retained in place by the pressure plate. Followed by the throw out bearing which is operated by the release fork. You could have a bad slave cylinder, but that would not be the source for the squealing you hear. Sounds like it's time to replace the clutch assembly.

Car wont go into gear when the car is running but will if the car is off and i just had the cluch replaced


Do you have pressure from the clutch assemble,or clutch pedal. if you do then the problem is the installation of the clutch,we know trans axle is good because you can put it in gear with the engine off the problem will be a clutch plate assemble. and the slide bearing release fork, the clutch pressure plate are the connecting link between the engine and trans axle,when you release the clutch the disk and plate joins the engine and trans axle togeter.when the car is runing the transaxle synchronizer will not let you go in gear. but when engine is off the pressure plate is non operational and the T.O bearing . Your fix is a Prssure Plate. (your basically slipping)

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.
