I had clutch plate pressure plate an all those things replaced about 2 months ago but when I drive first and second gear scratches its a 2001 polo playa 1,6 what can I do please

it could be that there is air in the hydraulic clutch system ( if it is hydraulic ) or the cable is out of adjustment
If the problem was from the time that you took delivery of the repaired car then I would suspect that the clutch plate is in back to front an the clutch hub is hitting on the fly wheel bolts
However have the clutch system operation bled or adjusted first before you go back to the shop

Hi, i have a Tata indica 1.4 baseline 2007-model (manual gearbox). I put car in reverse and made a scratching sound. Now i can't get any other gears (1-5) besides reverse. What could be the problem? I

I do not know what your mechanic was thinking to do it that way. vehicle manufacturers do not make clutch parts so the clutch would have been made by a company that makes all the clutches to specs. Just because it was not in a TATA parts box doesn't mean that it couldn't be matched up size wise to a generic kit.
What ever has happened is because of the mechanic's modification and the way he fitted it.

Were you careful not to get your hands on the face of the clutch disc too much? Any indication of oil or grease around the disc, like from a leaking rear crank seal, when you changed the clutch?
Did you bleed the slave cylinder, to get all air out of the system?

If still no help, someone will have to troubleshoot it. A new clutch should not slip, especially with the flywheel polished to smooth.

Flywheel or something grings against the starter when clutch is engaged

There is no way the ring gear will hit the starter pinion unless the fly wheel bolts on the crank shaft or loose allowing the flywheel to run out of true. If you have had clutch/ rear seal work done lately the fly wheel will only fit in one position and if that was ignored at some time then the fly wheel will run out and touch the starter pinion.. I would also check the adjustment on the starter pinion as it has to be set by the lever pivot to a correct distance or it will touch the teeth of the ring gear

Had new clutch kit fitted and mechined fly wheel new slave cylender and it is still slipping hyundai excel 1997

The clutch m/cyl has a compensating port that blocks up and doesn't fully release the clutch fork. Mostly the mechanic would have done what you asked to be done but as a matter of course he should have tested the clutch operation before handing back the car. I suggest you discuss the problem with him and explain that he hasn't fixed the problem that it came in for.

My clutch went out on ac in my 1998 toyota tacoma 6cyl. I was told i need to repace verything. If so what parts do i need?

First check the slave cylinder for the clutch, this could be the only issue, if your hydrailics fail your clutch won't work

If you do indeed need to replace the clutch replace everything Clutch disk, Pressure plate, Throw out bearing, and Fly wheel This is not a job that you want to have to do again in 6 months
Most auto parts stores will sell a kit containing everything you need
