Realistically it isnt a job i think a novice (sorry i dont know ya) should try to undertake on his own, although for a subaru mechanic it can be done in less than a day but there are a number of systems employed by subaru making this a reasonably difficult job.

Hi guys, here it is. it sounds drastic but really its easy as.
first go under the car and undo the 4 bolts (2 on each side) of the engine cross member.
then take the air box out and undo the plenum chamber (the really silver part that your air rushes through and has 4 spider legs) and put those to one side.
then undo fuel lines and electronics etc.
then from the back undo the engine--->gearbox bolts.
lift engine out (2 strong guys can do it) and then you have full access to the clutch and flywheel.
its easier then it sounds and dont be put off. just make sure that you unplug all sensors before lifting engine. Hope this helps

206 w reg fitted new clutch but now have no biting point so car will not pull away help


Hello, Who installed the clutch"? Were there a new pressure plate installed? Were there a new throw out bearing installed. Does this 1991 Peugeot 405 have hydraulic or mechanical clutch linkage?
There a couple of reason why the Peugeot wont move and engine is running and the transmission is in gear.

1.. Pressure plate is installed backwards.--Remove transmission and reinstall pressure plate in the correct orientation to the clutch. There is two ways to install it, but one way correctly.

2. Adjustment for the clutch linkage from the pedal in the driver compartment is adjusted to tight and not releasing the clutch to where the clutch pressure is on the pressure plate.



I hope this helps. GB....stewbison

95 legacy awd with a slipping clutch


yes the problem is that the pressure plates is getting weak and doesnt keep enuf pressure on the clutch. ive replaced clutch sets on many diff vehicles and when they act like u decribe its usually the pressure plate. replace entire clutch kit and if u decent mechanically u should be able to do it. in a clutch kit they give u a diagram and directions. keep a very good note on what parts u took off where to ensure u put them back in the right place

You have a high spot on your clutch plate...the tapping is the fly wheel passing by the clutch plate. If you're rolling and in second gear and put the clutch in your essentially simulating the same scenario as sitting still with the clutch in.

As long as the clutch is not slipping or shaking the vehicle on take off; what you're hearing is perfectly normal.

How to fit a new clutch into a ford escort 1300cc 1994


1991-96 Models
See Figures 1, 2 and 3
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the transaxle assembly.
  4. If the clutch assembly is to be reused, matchmark the pressure plate and the flywheel so they can be assembled in the same position.
  5. Install flywheel holding tool T84P-6375-A or equivalent, in a transaxle mounting hole on the engine and engage the tooth of the holding tool into the flywheel ring gear.



0900c1528008df86.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 1: Install a flywheel holding tool in a transaxle mounting hole on the engine, and engage the tooth of the tool into the flywheel ring gear
  1. Loosen the pressure plate-to-flywheel retaining bolts one turn at a time, in a crisscross pattern, until the spring tension is relieved, to prevent pressure plate cover distortion.
  2. Support the pressure plate and unfasten the retaining bolts. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc from the flywheel.

If the flywheel shows any signs of overheating (blue discoloration) or if it is badly grooved or scored, it should be refaced or replaced.
  1. Inspect the flywheel, clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing, pilot bearing and the clutch fork for wear. Replace parts as needed.

To install:
  1. If removed, install a new pilot bearing using a suitable installation tool.
  2. If removed, install the flywheel. Make sure the flywheel and crankshaft flange mating surfaces are clean. Tighten the flywheel retaining bolts to 71-76 ft. lbs. (96-103 Nm) on the 1.8L engine or 54-67 ft. lbs. (73-91 Nm) on the 1.9L engine.
  3. Clean the pressure plate and flywheel surfaces thoroughly. Position the clutch disc and pressure plate into the installed position and support them with a dummy shaft or clutch aligning tool. If the clutch assembly is being reused, align the matchmarks that were made during the removal procedure.
  4. Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts in the correct sequence to 13-20 ft. lbs. (18-26 Nm). Remove the alignment tool.

  1. If the release bearing was removed, lubricate the release fork where it contacts the bearing and install the bearing in the fork.
  2. Install the transaxle assembly.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Bleed the hydraulic clutch system, if needed.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Road test the vehicle and check the clutch for proper operation.

  3. Remove the transaxle.
  4. Gradually loosen the clutch pressure plate bolts, in a crisscross pattern. Support the pressure plate and remove the bolts. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc.
  5. Inspect the pilot bearing. If it is worn or damaged and does not turn easily by hand, remove it using a puller/slide hammer.
  6. Check the flywheel surface for scoring, cracks or burning and machine or replace, as necessary.
  7. Install a flywheel holder to keep the flywheel from turning. Loosen the flywheel bolts evenly and gradually in a crisscross pattern. Remove the flywheel.
  8. Inspect the clutch release bearing for wear. Replace it if it sticks or does not turn easily.
  9. Inspect the release fork for wear or damage and replace as necessary.
