HELP!!! Clutch Issues

Recommended Posts

I have just had the clutch replaced with a gear box oil change, and it now crunches in every gear, I can only get it into reverse by engaging reverse when car is switched off and then starting it. It was a Quniton and Hazell part, with Mobil SHC 75-90 oil. It ran fine until so called mechanic replaced the 3 part clutch kit and did an oil change to the gearbox. By the way, I decided to change the whole clutch as the rear main crankshaft seal was leaking and release bearing was slightly noisy.

Sounds to me like the clutch centre disc has been put in the wrong way round.

If the clutch now has a stiff spot right at the bottom then do not be tempted to press the pedal too hard or the clutch quadrant on the pedal will break causing you more problems. It is only plastic.

Hope all goes well

Going into a different garage, but on a cursory look, I saw they had removed the gear selector locking rods, why they did this is beyond me. Do not if you live in the East Midlands, use, Sturgess and Thompsons Ltd, situated on Gypsy Lane, Leicester. I will post updates if it can help anyone else!
