  • 95 SL2 CLUTCH ISSUE

    Ok, the facts.

    New clutch. dream36realms assured me it was a 1st gen design
    94 hydraulics. (the 95 slave was broked, so replaced the whole system)
    Resurfaced flywheel

    The problem

    The clutch WILL NOT disengage. It wont go into gear when running, and when i try to start in gear, it just jerks forward.

    Suggestions?

    did you check the fork after you installed the tranny?

      Sounds like you bent he friction disc...Did you let the tranny hang one while you reached for a bolt?

          what I had to do was

          to push the car out to the street ( ware there is no trafc )

          than put it into 1st gear with the motor off

          have a buddy push the car wile turnning the key to use the starter to get rolling

          than as you drive the car for 2 to 6 blocks jentely push the clutch in malltatude of times ( make shor you get your foot off the pedel every time ) this lets the air bubbles out of the master

          with in 6 blocks every thing was working for me

              Never hand that problem unless something was wrong...I reused a pressure plate that played catch with a diff pin and it would drag.

              If it ain't working thenyou screw something up, or something is screwed up mechanically.

                you might as well take the trans back off and see whats not working...dont drive it just see what isnt working....and as long as you werent messing with that slave i dont see how you got air in it...my two cents

                  well, i took the slave out, and stuck my finger in there. I cant move the fork around too much, but it has a bit of play. The trans didnt hang while i went for a bolt. no. the motor was on the stand, i dropped the tranny onto it and bolted it down. I did this while it sat vertically. I am going to have to separate the engine and trans and take a peek in there.

                    did the trans slide on smoothly or did you use the bolts to pull it together?

                    if you used the bolts, busted pressure plate.

                        This may sound dumb, but how hard were the bolts to put in for the pressure plate?

                          not hard. spacing was an issue, because we used 13mm bolts instead of the 10mm. but the bolts threaded down just fine, and then we torqued them. why do you ask? over torqued/ mis aligned PP?
