It is just hanging up on the splines. After verifying ALL the fasteners were removed, you will have to shake the trans vigorously in order to get to release.

Clutch noise


It's time to change the clutch with entire kit. Release bearing, pilot bearing, clutch plate, pressure plate and get flywheel turned. If that bearing flies apart inside your transmission it will leave you stranded and your release fork will be destroyed possibly causing more damage to the transmission housing. It is hydraulic and if the master cylinder is working properly you're not likely to notice any play in the pedal due to release bearing.

Replaced the serpentine belt that connects my power steering and alternator on a 1995 Subaru imprezza 2.2L awd. Belt has come off several times. What can be done?


Hi

Your tensioner bearings may be worn out and the when they turn, they wobble.

a replacement should solve your problems.

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.

How do i take clutch fork out. trying to


Im assuming its 5speed, just remove the cables/line, no need to remove the clutch fork out to separate the tranny from the motor, clutch fork only work the throw-out bearing, it stay with the transmission; it little stubborn sometime for both to seperate from one another. just make sure the tranny is well balance and not hanging from the motor while trying separate the two. it will be very difficult trying to pull the tranny away from the motor if its not on the correct level and height and must not have no weight on the transmission shaft. You have to slide the tranny straight out and level from the flywheel, tranny shaft has to come out straight and same way when reinstall.

Need to change clutch on a subaru WRX 2-1994 model


no it does not, the wrx has its throw out bearing attached to a shaft that needs to be removed before you seperate the trans from the engine. you will see a access plug on the drivers side just below the starter,remove the plug with a 10mm hex to gain access the shaft,install a 6 mm by 1.0 bolt into the threaed portion of the shaft and slide it out,the throw out bearing is attached to the pressure plate with a large cir clip, make sure the throw out and shaft are reinstalled on the trans before it is installed,when it is, push fork while standing in front of the car to attach the the throw out bearing to the pressure plate, good luck!

Well lucky for you there is a lemon law. Bring the car in for the state inspection, Request for them to be thorough, explain that you just bought it. The past owner is responsible for the repairs. If not, get reimbursed. I'm not sure what trani fluid it takes but call the dealer for that. The noise from the front end, the grinding could be anything, check the wheel bearings, steering components, rust on rotors, backing plates, and related items. The trany noise could be nothing or it could be clutch pedal linkage, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing, or clutch asembily. It would need to be inspected to see if anything applies.

Need to reset check engine light on 2002 Subaru Imprezza 2.5


1st u need to know if the check engine light comes on there is a fault present, you need to have the system computer tested to get the fault code that is set with the check engine light illumination. the system in your car is very sophisticated and has the ability to work round most system problems, this means u will feel no diff in the way the car runs, u can reset the light by just disconnecting the battery negative for 5 min's, but the light will come back on if the fault is still present.

1995 Subaru Impreza wagon - heater fan


Mine use to work on high only. It was the switch cylinders, something like that. It was an easy fix. Now my blower motor works intermittently. If I kick it, it turns back on. It is located on the passenger side close to the door side directly above your feet (below the jockey box). Kick straight up. If you need to replace it it is also an easy do-it-yourself repair. Make sure before you go out and replace your blower motor that you check your switch. A lot of repair shops will replace the motor w/o checking the switch, you end up paying for 2 repairs. You can make sure it's not the switch by jumping (bypassing) the switch.You apply jumper wires (not cables) directly to the motor, if the motor turns on you know it's the switch.

Knocking noise from engine at > 2000 RPM.. any ideas??


it does sound like a big end bearing and yes the piston will come outta the bloc k eventually if you keep driving
it can be replaced no need for a new engine
you will need a engine if it does come outta the side
but to fix a big end is not that much, if u need a new engine for your veichle is about a few grand

but 100 percent big end bearing i done one last week on a suburu wrx imprezza turb all up it was 550 or so
