JoeFromPA Posted March 3, 2009 Share Posted March 3, 2009 /Begin Rant I am growing to despise our stock clutch. I have begun to realize that EVERYTIME I back out of my townhome parking space, I get clutch stink. I park on a flat spot and have an easy process of backing up. The clutch is obviously not heated already from slipping, because this is the first shift I do. I literally am slipping the clutch for less than 1.5 seconds, as I'm incredibly easy on it because I know how sensitive it is. Nevertheless, starting about 3 weeks ago I noticed a little smell. Kinda sulfury & burning. As of yesterday, it was distinct, strong, and my wife looked at me and said "Eww....is that the clutch?". It went away immediately. I never smell it during any other driving experience....which should show you how little i slip the clutch. This thing is disgusting. I can't back out of a flat open parking space without getting clutch stink? I really don't look forward to dropping $1000 on a new clutch & installation, but I can't wait to get this thing out. Thank God I have a single-mass flywheel stock and just need a new clutch Joe Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
