Question about 1997 Toyota Tacoma

1 Answer

I have a 97 with the same problem, changed the cable at the same time as the clutch and the problem came back. I am thinking about lubricating the cable from the instrument panel down to the trans.

I have a 1986 240 five speed. The clutch pedal is hard to push to engage clutch.


If you know any motorcycle riders, you can borrow their cable lubricating tool and an aerosol can of Chain and Cable lube and clamp the tool to the bottom end of the cable and force lubricant up the length of the cable. Throw a rag on the floor of the car beneath the clutch pedal to catch drips. Look for fraying cable at the bottom end of the cable.
Failing that, you can try replacing the cable with a quality (i.e. not made in China) replacement cable. It is a bit of a chore to replace because it is hard to get your hand up to the top of the clutch pedal arm to disconnect and reconnect that cable. Helps to have small hands. The lower end of the cable beneath the car is easy to do if you have the car up on ramps.
There are problems that can happen within the clutch that will make the pedal hard to press, but you probably don't want to tackle that, mostly because the transmission in this car is really heavy and can hurt you when you are taking it out and putting it back. Also, you will need tools that you probably don't currently own. If the problem turns out to be deeper and you do decide to tackle the clutch job yourself, get a couple of strong friends under there with you to pull the transmission out and later to put it back..

WHEN I PUSH IN MY CLUTCH IN MY 2002 KIA RIO IT MAKES A SQUEAKING SOUND, DOES THAT MEAN THE CABLE IS READY TO BREAK ?


The problem can be several things including the clutch cable, throw out bearing, or just a lack of lubrication.

I would start by checking the clutch cable. I attached a diagram along with the adjustment procedure for your reference.

Remove the cable from the clutch form and with someone inside the car and someone at the transmission end of the cable gently push down on the clutch pedal by hand. While this is being done the person holding the cable should feel for any binding or listen for any squeaking. If it is binding or noisy I recommend replacement rather than lubricating it as most likely the cable is already damaged and it is not worth getting stuck for an inexpensive part. If you do want to try and lubricate it you can get good cable lube at any motorcycle shop.

If the cable appears good gently move the clutch form back and forth to feel for any binding or to see if you hear your noise. If you do it will require removal of the transmission for further diagnosis.

When you reinstall the cable follow the adjustment procedure I attached to this string.

Hey ill push the clutch pedal in then it will make a snap noise then i wont have any clutch then when it comes back it clicks theres a new clutch on it hasent been used in 7 years


i think either your clutch cable is seized and needs lubricating , or the pressure plate teeth on clutch plate housing have broken , maybe from sitting for so long or improper fitting years ago , maybe also your clutch plate is siezed against clutch plate disc . but i think one of the first 2 suggestions most likely..

i have seen cases where even after new clutch plate teeth have been broken from un correct adjustment of clutch pedal and cable when fitted , but i think you wont have much luck getting warranty after all that time !

i hope for you replacement of cable is answer .. good luck

How do i change the clutch cable on a vw jetta it a 97


97 VOLKSWAGEN CABRIOLET/ JETTA CLUTCH CABLE REPLACEMENT

Place a jack under the lever on the gearbox to lift up the arm enough to remove the retaining clip on the engine-end of the clutch cable. Remove the clips and pull the cable loose from the transmission. Then go into the dash and remove the instrument cluster/ gauges to gain access to the pedal end of the cable. You'll need to pop off the plastic clips left and right of the dash to remove the plastic insert in front of the gauge cluster, then two screws and two plugs on the back of the gauges takes care of that step. Push the clutch cable in, and look for the round end of the cable where it's stuck into the top of the pedal. Pop it out with a screwdriver and pull the cable out under the hood. When you insert the new cable, you may need to tap the rounded end in with a hammer and punch or screwdriver to get it to seat back in the pedal assembly.

If I remember correctly the clutch is cable driven & you adjust it by pulling up on the clutch pedal quickly. I think there was a little mechanism on back of pedal arm, that would move slightly by doing this. Although it may be time for a new assy, it's worth a try.
