New clutch dragging, hard to shift


Recommended Posts

Just put in a new clutch kit (spec stage 2) and after reassembly, the clutch is not fully disengaging. The geab point is about 1/2 way up, but even on the floor, the car creeps a bit when trying to get it into 1st, which is difficult but not impossible to do. Shifting when the car is off is a little difficult bit much easier than when running. Pedal feels a little mushy, so I plan on bleeding the slave and master cylinders. Previous clutch was stock, but the TOB was toast. Any other ideas?

Make sure the clutch fork didn't fall off the pivot ball before you do anything.


The piston from the slave cylinder should move level not at a down ward angle.
