Clutch Not Working
- Wrench set
- Socket set
- Appropriate replacement parts
- Protective eyewear and gloves
Step 1 - A hydraulic clutch systems use fluid to operate the clutch system. Begin by checking the fluid level of the primary cylinder, if the fluid is low or out completely, the system is leaking and repair is required. Inspect the clutch primary and secondary cylinders for leakage at the dust boot of input rods. (Note: inspect under the dash toward the rear of the clutch master where its common for a leak to occur.)
Helpful Information Never let little clicking noises go unattended; a small noise can cause a large problem. Try not to overload a vehicle or tow beyond the capacity this can cause premature transmission failure. Best Practices
- When replacing a clutch disc, also replace the pressure plate throwout and pilot bearings if equipped.
- Remove flywheel and have it resurfaced.
- Once the flywheel has been removed inspect the engine rear main seal and replace if needed.
- Always lubricate the throwout bearing slide surface to ensure proper operation
