Default Clutch #2 More clutch shudder.....

This I dont get....

So I bought my car in July of 2001 (2002 WRX), Had the typical clutch shudder that everybody else has been getting with there first clutch. Take it to the dealership, they replaced the clutch at 20,002 miles on September 2002. At 27,700 miles on the newly replaced clutch, the shudder is back . The pressure plate is seriously a piece of junk on it, from other people telling me there accounts and what the service guy showed me when he pulled out my first clutch.

Has anybody else had the same problem with there newly replaced clutch shuddering again?

i would take it back in now....the replacement parts are apparently different. when you had it fixed 6 months ago, they probably just replaced with the same parts your car came with

I totally agree with Philly on that. Just take it back and hopefully they'll replace it without any questions asked.

I had almost the identical experience as LinuxGuy. I bought my car in March '01, clutch replaced at ~20K in July '02 for chatter. It has come back, although not nearly as severe, at ~29K.
This time around the clutch doesn't shudder as much, but it does it longer.

unless subaru uses lighter springs on the clutch
and gives the clutch pedal more stroke, the shudder will
not go away for you guys.

The new parts are different, the clutch shudder is gone on my car. The big difference I have noticed is that the new clutch is the same, regardless of weather conditions. The old one felt different (abrupt) in cold weather, even before the shudder started.
The new clutch does give a light pedal feel, compared to the old one.

Question Will it hurt performance?

Can anyone tell me if the TSB discusses here is a more agressive or less aggressive clutch than the stock WRX clutch?

My dealer just documented my clutch shudder this AM. I'm in Canada and our TSB on this issue only covers the 2.5L cars. My service guy said I have three options:
1. Get the stock clutch replaced
2. Get the upgraded clutch as per the USA TSB
3. Put in an aftermarket (I pay for it)

I am trying to debate as to whether I get the stock clutch replaced, which is supposed to be an aggressive clutch. Or, get the USA TSB recommended clutch. I have considered going aftermarket but the funds can't support it at the moment. I am considering throwing in a short-throw though.

Thing is, the Master Tech at my dealer tells me that the 2.5L clutch replacement is a less aggressive clutch to make engagement smoother but as a result, you lose some off-the-line performance and clutch life is shorter. Does anyone know if this is also true for the 2.0L Turbo clutch upgrade? If it is, I may just get the stock clutch replaced with the same unit. Has anyone actually seen the two clutches side-by-side for a good comparison?

Thanks, JC
