If its auto adjusting types you wont be able to. fixed one is alot cheaper but you constantly need to place spacers. loosen the lock nut on top and screw the plastic upwards. then unhook slotted metal plate under gearbox fork and cable will come out. place your spacers and reverse procedure.

The slave cylinder will be mounted on the bell housing and will push on an arm that comes out of the housing. It will have a bleed nipple (same type as on the brakes) at the end of the cylinder near the rubber hose attached to the cylinder .. (This is relevant if the clutch is not cable actuated). Regardless of wether it is 2WD --4WD or how many drives it has the clutch slave cylinder is attached to the bell housing and pushes on the clutch throw out arm in the bell housing. The bell housing is that section between the rear of the engine and the front of the gear box and houses the clutch assembly

Need to replace clutch arm cu7z its bented need to know how and where to find paert for a1994 geo tracker


suzuki still sells these parts.
my guess, is the actual upper ,pedal arm broke or bent. as is so common.
it is caused buy not replacing the clutch cable every 100k miles or lubing it. (stripped spline, busted firewall, bent or cracked.)
there are 3 ways.
1: new arm at suzuki (ask for p/n I can tell you)
2: get part off a wrecked kick or tracker
3: pound it straight or weld it.

98 jetta wolfsburg. Clip that hold cable to arm broke. When replacing the clip I had to jack up the clutch arm with a bottle jack to hook up the cable. The cable will not let the arm drop down where it...


It has a plastic Ratchet style gear at the pedal end of the cable that has to be released. This gear automatically adjust the clutch when the pedal is pressed. Never put a jack against a clutch arm. You will probably have to disengage the cable to reset the ratchet gear. Don't strip the teeth on the gear

The vehicle wont go into gear. It goes into the gears without having to step on the clutch but the vehicle wont move. Where do i begin


First you need to check if your clutch is moving. Does the pedal move freely and easily, or is there resistance? Second, does the throw out bearing arm move with the clutch pedal and cable or, when you move the pedal, is the arm sticking out of the transmission stuck in the pushed in position? If there is no resistance and the arm is not moving, you may have a frozen cable - there's little in the transmission to cause this problem since you stated you can shift into the gears.. You'll need a helper to push the clutch pedal as you push and pull on that arm. That arm will have either a cable or a small cylinder attached to it - I believe you'll find a cable. If that cable ( which is connected to the clutch pedal ) won't move then there's your problem. You may be able to lubricate it for a temporary fix but ultimately you need to replace it. If the cable moves fine as well as that arm then you probably have a broken disc in your clutch and will need to have it replaced. Unfortunately there is no quick fix if the cable moves. If it doesn't and you don't have any lubricating spray, get some oil from your kitchen and pour some on the end of the cable at the tranny and try moving that arm back and forth - you may need a screwdriver or other tool as an extension to help.
Good luck!!

Part missing from clutch trust arm on ford escort


Hi. The same thing happened to me yesterday and I called out the RAC.
Fortunately the culprit was left dangling on the end of the clutch cable, what the nice Rac man described as a 'counterweight'. This is a roughly 2inch cube unit, mainly rubber, that clicks over the end of the arm and the cable itself fits into.It seemed to fit back in position after a little lubrication and a bit of wiggling.
Only fitted to some cars, apparently , (and not mentioned in my Haynes manual). Mr Rac not sure if it should be bonded to the arm, or just left 'clicked' in place.
Hope this helps a bit. Boatyman47

2001 VW Jetta with clutch issues


Hi I am Vortash it sounds to me that your Thrust bearing on the clutch actuator arm is damaged , it is probably worn and not pushing evenly or that the cable is rusty and in need of repalcement ( hence the squeaking ? ) the cable may even be stretched ..some jettas in this country also had Hydraulic clutches and this would point to a leak ( damaged rubber seals or slave or master cylinder rubbers leak ) or air bubble , or low fluid level not actuating the thrust arm properly
hope this is of help regards Vortah

Clutch pedal has no pressure


1991 Golf has a cable clutch, the cable pulls up on the arm you see outside the transmission. the arm rotates a shaft in the very tail end of the transmission which actuates a rocker arm which pushes a pushrod that travels up the center of the transmission and operates the clutch.

very complicated right?

anyway, the rocker arm in the tail end of the transmission is famous for cracking along its' splines and jumping over the shaft.
go to the local vw dealer or jobber who specializes in german parts.
you need the rocker arm and the cover plate for the end of the tranny.

remove the clutch cable from the arm, remove the end plate and you'll see the rocker arm, unclip the shaft, remove old rocker arm, and replace. should cost a maximum of $30-40(can)

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.
