What is the sequence that the release bearing parts are installed in? As you know, this clutch release bearing is a quite different P.I.T.A. Than the normal type that presses against the pressure plate spring fingers to release the clutch. This one has a 'nose' on it that goes through another piece/collar that in turn goes through a ring on the pressure plate. I'm having a great deal of trouble stabbing all of this as the transmission is installed, hence my question about the sequence, does that collar get put into the ring in the center of the pressure plate first, before stabbing the transmission, or is the collar pre-assembled onto the nose of the release bearing? This is the hardest to stab transmission assembly that i've ever done.

Do you
have the same problem?

You must have the clutch disc lined up using the clutch alignment tool. If the disc is not right the transmission will never go in. Here is a guide and a video of the job being done.

Here are some diagrams of the clutch replacement on your car.

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken

Transmission problem
1995 Isuzu Rodeo Question 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 175000 miles

I had this clutch replaced at 75K miles and then again at 175K miles. I also had the engine rear main seal, transmission front and rear seal and the vavle cover gaskets replaced at the time of the third clutch replacement. This third clutch doesn't work once the engine gets hot. You have to bleed the bleeder valve on the slave valve and the diverter valve to get it to go back to normal until it gets hot again. My mechanic, Mr. Transmission, the dealer and my old mechanic cannot figure out what is causing this. Your thoughts?

Hi dmcafee,

What you are experiencing is the inability of the clutch hydraulic line to release the pressure.
When driven over long distances, the clutch self applies when pressure builds up due to the heat. The possibilities for such to happen are,
1. Faulty master cylinder.
2. Improperly adjusted pedal push rod to master cylinder clearance or height or faulty pedal return spring.
3. Riding the clutch pedal with the foot.

On this 95 rodeo the t/o bearing snaps into the p/p and pulls on diaphragm to release the clutch. It stays on fork and pulls out of center of p/p. Im not sure what a shift block is :) Thanks much!

we are replacing my clutch and having a problem, we replaced the clutch and put the bellhousing back on. The throwout bearing was not being held by the throwout bearing arm due to stress/heat.

Bellhousing is back on. Is there a way to get the new throwout bearing on the arm without taking the bellhousing off?

Hi there,

You will have to remove the box and refit the thrust carrier to the fork, making sure that the retaining clip is OK as well.
