clutch problems


Recommended Posts

Firstly a happy new year to you all, secondly my 90's clutch pedal has started creaking as i depress it, you can't hear anything in the engine bay but you can by the bellhousing and you can also feel a little something through the pedal. I am guessing either the release fork or something in the clutch itself is on the way out as the clutch is starting to be a little jumpy. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated also opinions on either box or engine out for clutch swap.

Thanks in advance Chris

It's worth considering the age/condition of the clutch, too. Given the work involved in getting the box off, would it be worth putting a new clutch in, while you're down there? (for the sake of an extra £100).

Thanks for the replies, i had already oiled the pivot and spring before i posted and after soaking overnight still no improvement. I also have very little clutch left on the pedal and the creaking is definately coming from the bell housing so it looks like a strip down job.

Thanks again Chris.

Well the landy has been parked up for a few days and when I tried it on saturday the problem had gone. My thought now is that I had been doing a lot of miles on very wet roads and some off road work aswell and I wonder if some dirt and or damp has got into the bell housing. I am going 2 run her on for a day or two and see what happens, will keep you posted.

I was going to post tonight, until i read this. What a coincedence.

My clutch pedal gives a loud creak/squeal when depressed. I was going to ask for a cure.

Incidentally, my clutch fork and clutch are both brand new. The creak has always been there even before the new clutch and fork. I think its something where the clutch pedal pivots, but dont know how accessable the mechanism is.
