    Bad Dual Mass Flywheel?

    Frank06, In fairness to discussions stating a balance value w/o noting the correction radius is like stating tighten to 65 LB. instead of 65 LB/FT. GCM is a pretty common balance reference. Gary

    5spd clutch/hydraulics question

    They replaced it. Question, was it LEAKING or WEEPING brake fluid? If not leaking or weeping please have shop explain their criteria and discovery that it was "defective"? Hope you get problem fixed.

    Hard Shifting 03 New Beetle

    Engine running, select 1st gear. Slowly bring clutch pedal up. How far does the clutch pedal come up before the engine starts to move the car? Pedal reserve travel, maybe 1 1/2" before engine starts to move car, good. Right off of the floor? Not good. 1st suspect air in hydro's. Any history...

    5spd clutch/hydraulics question

    The hydraulics do not know that you are driving, engine RPM or gear being selected. They only know you applied a force to the pedal, master creates pressure, fluid is forced thru hose and slave cylinder pushes the release fork. A slave cylindesr biggest job, Do Not leak fluid or allow air to...

    Hard Shifting 03 New Beetle

    Photoguy100, I cannot judge if clutch is fully releasing as I described in my post. Shifter doesn't look like it's shifting freely, she is putting some arm in in to make the shifts. I'm running Syncromesh for couple years now nothing bad to report. 1 car, 1 driver. Consider inspecting the...

    Hard Shifting 03 New Beetle

    If you can get it in 1st SLOWLY bring up clutch pedal. How far does the pedal come up before the car starts to move? Right off of the floor, suspect air in hydro's. Comes up over 1 1/2" before car starts to move, don't suspect air in hydros. Difficult to get it into 1st and maybe other gears...

    clutch/crank gremlins? No fit on new clutch

    If you can identify the actual manufacturer of each clutch and any etched on part numbers possibly a bit of mystery about the clutch could be figured out. Both Sachs and LuK put information on the cover facing the trans. I don't have any info on "Euro" vs US production. It's all mfgr part...

    clutch/crank gremlins? No fit on new clutch

    That is exactly what doesn't work for comparing clutches. They must be bolted down on a FW with a full thickness disc then you can make a measurement of the spring tip height from the crank mounting surface if the FW's were different designs. Any chance those were self adjusting clutches?

    clutch/crank gremlins? No fit on new clutch

    The system stack height is the possible interesting measurement. You cannot measure a clutch spring tip height on the bench uninstalled. If you could put the two systems together bolted up and create a measurement reference from the back of the FW where it bolts to the crank, now measure to the...

    Grinding when clutch is completely depressed.

    Slave cylinders do not rely on an internal stop. The distance your slave cylinder travels is determined by the volume of fluid displaced from the master cylinder. Push on the pedal a little, short slave cylinder stroke, longer pedal travel = longer slave cylinder stroke. The one drawback about...

    Grinding when clutch is completely depressed.

    Spacer will not shorten the slave cylinder stroke. If you want to rig up a temp fix make a pedal stop. That will reduce the total slave cylinder travel. Did it happen immediately after clutch install, or later? New flywheel too?

    Used Transmission Price

    First possible, air in hydraulic system. Suggest open bleed screw bleeding. Pedal up. Open bleed screw. Pedal down slowly and fully to floor. Close bleed screw. Lift pedal fully up. Repeat, maybe 6 times. Other things are possible but air in hydro's means trans stays installed to fix.

    changed clutch and now car wont move

    How about inspecting the shifter cables for actually putting trans in gear? And do you have the part number of the clutch system installed. As soon as you bolt the pressure plate, disc and flywheel together, the clutch is engaged, capable of transmitting torque to input shaft. Trick is to get...

    Is it the clutch... or syncronizers?

    The biggest reason I posed this question goes back to is it clutch or syncros. I think a new clutch was installed. 3/4 upward travel before engagement. Is that total pedal travel or 3/4" or ? The single biggest pitfall in clutch work is getting all the air out and that has a huge impact on...

    Is it the clutch... or syncronizers?

    Engine running. Clutch pedal normal on floorboard position. Select 1st gear. Slowly bring the clutch pedal up. Carefully note the initial engagement of the clutch and vehicle movement. Q. How far up from the floorboard before the car starts to move? Looking for an actual dimension estimate of...

    BioJoe Thanks for hosting and still kinda scratching my head over your company and turning waste into $$ and growing. I'll never see a Tiki torch the same again. Keep growing Joe. That was my first observer situation with injector R&R and new nozzles. Almost looks doable if I get the need...

    new throwout bearing not centered?

    Yes proceed with installation. That is a self aligning clutch release bearing. It can be shifted by hand but don't worry. Install, start engine and push clutch pedal. Bearing will find new center on its own. Makes for a cooler running bearing, no scuffing due to slight center to center...
