Cool "Creaky" clutch pedal fix...Now with nude pics!!

Ok. you guys and gals wanted pics of this fix. Well, you got'um.

Look at this first pic. This is what your clutch slave cylinder looks like. The reason you can't see it is because you still have the "big black box" connected to your throttle body. Please remove the "box".


Ok, so do you now see the slave cylinder? Now pull the fork towards the slave cylinder. Before the rod has a chance to come back out, lift up and remove the rod and rubber boot. Please see the pic.


Put some fresh high-temp bearing grease on BOTH ends of the rod. Put the rod and boot assembly to the side for now. Now you need to remove the big rubber boot from around the clutch fork. Look at how the boot is oriented and don't forget.It should now look like this:


In order to lube the pivot ball for the clutch fork, you will need to buy a can of motorcycle chain lube. Why you ask? Because the grease comes out of the can as a liquid, and after a few minutes, it becomes a grease. Please see below:


You will have to spray directly on the pivot ball in order for the liquid to flow onto the assembly. If you look closely at the pic below, you can actually see the pivot bolt and the pivot point of the clutch fork.


I will tell you now that getting the big rubber boot back into the bellhousing is a slight pain.
Reassemble everything and then slowly pump the clutch pedal until it comes back up and becomes firm. (damn, sounds like a porno movie)

Ok, your done. Enjoy. Send $10 to my private address. Thankyou, ARG

Actually, that is a stainless steel line made by SMC. It has a blue teflon iner cover and a clear outer cover. I know it looks funky, but it is stainless steel. They go for $34 if you are interested. I also changed my fluid to Valvoline synthetic DOT4 at the same time. The clutch feels stronger and the rod pushes out further from the slave cylinder. My clutch used to lose its feel and become mushy on a hot day or in stop and go traffic. These two mods have completely fixed the problem.

ARG,
You ARE on the button!

I ordered my "clutch cable" (blue of course) from SMC 2 days ago. I also purchased 2 Valvoline synthetic DOT4 fluid bottles!

Thanks again for the info ARG! I'm going to show this info to my dealer!!!

Sev, I always knew what the problem was and was telling everyone to grease that monkey. Everyone including you were trying to prove me wrong and tell me that it was "something inside there".

Damn it, turn your ICQ on already!!!

Cool

When I go to those inport shows, you know, the ones with the sexy Asian models. I think Asian women are beautiful. It's hard to concentrate on the car show when those girls are struting around. It almost makes me forget about my future mods.

Hey, could post the procedure (w/ pictures preferably) on how to bleed the clutch line? BTW, I've never bleed the brakes before either, so please don't say it's just like bleeding the brakes ...

Thanks,
