View Full Version : Problems with the clutch pedal

10-20-2005, 09:07 PM
I was having some trouble with my clutch pedal recently.

Every now and then, when I would press it down, it wouldn't pop back up,
infact, it would stay stuck to the ground. It's not that it was being obstructed
by the floormat or anything, it was just stuck. For it to pop back up, i'd just
use my foot, and tuck it under the pedal and pop it back.
Once it was at the starting position, it would be back to normal.
When the pedal is being lifted back to the start position, it's as if it isn't catching at all,
until it goes back to the starting position.

I changed my clutch a few days ago, brand new clutch, pressure plate and release bearing, and just today, the pedal stuck again.

I'm not sure, but i think that when it sticks it's burning my clutch in the process.
Has anyone ever heard of an issue like this, and if so, does anyone know what
I need to do to fix this, or what parts i'm going to need??...

Already tried it, more than once...
I bled it before I changed the clutch, and bled it again after I changed it.
Still sticking.

100 % slave cylinder.
Mine did this till the fork rod fell into the bell housing, leaking break fluid the whole time.
