CLUTCH RELEASE BEARING TRAVEL MEASUREMENT
Externally Mounted Slave Cylinder
Remove slave cylinder dust shield. With clutch pedal fully depressed, measure external slave cylinder push rod travel.
Push rod should travel a minimum of 0.43" (10.9 mm). DO NOT replace clutch hydraulic system if measurement exceeds specification. If slave cylinder travel is less than specification, check hydraulic reservoir fluid level.
Internally Mounted Slave Cylinder
Remove rubber plug from inspection port in transmission bellhousing. Position Bearing Travel Measurement Tool (D87T-4201-A) through opening and against slave cylinder. See Fig. 1 .
Using rear edge of Black plastic bearing retainer as an indicator, take a reading with clutch pedal fully up. With clutch pedal fully depressed, take another measurement.
Difference between 2 readings is total bearing travel. If bearing travel is greater than 0.3" (7.5 mm), replace clutch pressure plate and/or clutch disc.
If bearing travel is less than 0.3" (7.5 mm), check hydraulic reservoir fluid level and inspect hydraulic system for leaks.
If leak is found, repair leak and bleed system. If no leak is found, bleed system. See HYDRAULIC SYSTEM BLEEDING under IN-VEHICLE SERVICE. Recheck bearing travel after repairs have been completed.
