Drum basket springs rubbers and so on, including the control rod because it had broken. The Clutch lever however operated fine with a nice smooth action before changing the clutch, but now the lever only moves about 10mm before becoming rock solid, making it impossible to disengage the engine. I have removed the clutch slave from the bike for inspection but it remains solid which I think indicates that the piston is stuck. The slave cylinder was hanging free from the bike for a few weeks, I do not know if this is significant. My questions are: What is wrong? How can I fix it? Bike: 996 European Biposto Year: 2000 Many thanks,having the slave hanging shouldn't be the problem. The only only thing I can think of is, when you replaced the rod did you get the correct one? I can't remember off-hand right now, but I know that the clutch rod came in different lenghts. I just can't remember if the 2000 and earlier were the longer ones or vise-versa. I'm sure some one here will know that one. I could be wrong about this is the problem, but it's my guess.,,,

Hydraulic clutch is not disengaging, when put into 1st gear the engine conks out. Replaced the master cylinder and bled the line - still conks out. Do I need too replace the slave cylinder or what?

Truck clutch was replaced at only 27329 km and had to be replaced again at 29742.Not the same driver, what could be reasons for this failure?

When the clutch was replaced was the slave cylinder also replaced? How about the throw out bearing? These are the first things I'd be looking at. When you have premature failure of these components, it comes down to the person(s) driving the vehicle or the components, in this case 2 clutches in a short amount of time plus 2 different drivers = component failure. Slave cylinder not pushing / pulling the throw out bearing enough or the bearing may be hanging on the input shaft, did you reface the flywheel or put a new one in?

Where is slave cylinder located on the motor

The slave cylinder, which is present only on manual transmission automobiles, is located at the transmission bell housing, where it provides the hydraulic pressure-to-mechanical pressure conversion that actuates the clutch fork to disengage the clutch plate from the pressure plate.

Its possible the trans input shaft is stuck in the clutch plate or engine crank bush. I have no ready answer to that other than persistence!! Get an exploded view from online or a manual to see if there is anything you've missed. Have you removed the starter? Sometimes there is an intermediate plate between the engine and trans that has hidden screws.

My clutch seems to have gone out tonight. The clutch is very easy to push to the floor...and it pops back....there's no pressure at all. The clutch fluid is leaking from the hose. Could this be the...

it could be either the master cylinder or the slave cylinder,it could also be the clutch pressure plate check the master & slave cylinders first because if it's the pressure plate the gear box will have to be removed to replace the pressure plate, even if you are uncertain it is most likely cheaper to replace the master & slave cylinders than it would be to replace the pressure plate.....hope this helps......cheers.

The clutch is stuck to the floor bord and i cant shift

you may have a faulty clutch master cylinder or faulty clutch slave cylinder- leaking clutch fluid. most of the time both are replaced at the same time which should be recomended by your mechanic, the bolts to the master cylinder are very hard to get to and require the right tool.
you should be able to move car forward by selecting 1st then cranking engine till it starts, gear changes while driving are hard but not impossible. i recommend a tow truck to a local repairer.

Clutch won't release on 92 Nissan P/U. Changed Clutch Master Cylinder and slave. Bled system. Have good travel on slave cylinder but still does not release the clutch when the pedal is pushed?

If the vehicle has been standing for some time (6 months or more) without use, the clutch plate facings may be 'stuck' to the flywheel and pressure plate surface.
To check/clear this problem:-
(with the engine not running!)
hold clutch pedal down - then from under vehicle, find an opening in the clutch bellhousing (such as a water drain slot) where you can see/access the edge of the clutch plate (sandwiched between the pressure plate and flywheel).
Use a screwdriver blade (or similar tool) to prise clutch plate free from flywheel face (only small movement is required).
If the above is not the cause of your problem, 1) the clutch throwout mechanism should be examined for problems,
2) the pressure plate is faulty- may need to be replaced.

Fitting Ducati 748 clutch slave cylinder to square case 900 1978

hi,not up to speed on your bike, but if the reservoir is empty then you have a leak,check master cylinder and work your way down to the slave cylinder for anything obvious,it mite be very slight leak but over a long period of time it will empty the reservoir,i know mine does(748)albeit very slowly,clutch slave cylinder is a favourite place for leak as it gets quite warm down there,wouldnt have thought you will need a new clutch
unless it slipping
hope this helps
