i have a problem with my clutch i have taken the slave cylinder of and the arm is a little stiff but looking inside it doesnt seem to be releasing i can get the gears fine but when i let the clutch and it drives (i have jacked up the front and started in gear) so the wheel can drive there doesnt seem to be anything making the arm push back sorry this is bit vague any help would be most gratefull thanks in advance
sorry forgot to mention its a 420 sdi 97 r
The clutch assembly pushes the lever back nothing else. Are the cylinders free to move (master & slave)
yes they all move free all that happend is the other morning a put my foot on the clutch and it returned very slow so i depressed the clutch again and it just went to the floor after futher inspection the cylinder on the out side had popped the plunger out i have put that back together and it works fine put my foot on the clutch and the arm moves but does not return if that helps thanks
had the same symptoms when the mouting bracket for my slave cylinder failed, (although mine is customised) i am no expert but i suspect there is now not enough fluid in the system to bring the pedal back up...
When it was fixed the system had to be re-bled, but i dont think that the standard setup is as easy to do...
thanks the pedal is not the problem its the arm that does not return back the slave cylinder will push it but the arm a assume pushes the cylinder back which it is not doing
Is the arm free, it sounds like it could be siezing and thats why it wont come back properly.
