NB SE clutch problems

Postby KD8LZT » Wed Apr 12, 2017 6:58 am

I purchased and had installed an Exedy Racing Stage 1 Organic Clutch Kit in my 2002 SE. I rally cross and autocross as well as drive every day year around. The OEM clutch lasted 110K and it was the little bearing in the flywheel that froze up that prompted the replacement. At first it released like the normal clutch. After about 6 months the release point has moved up toward the top of the pedal travel. I have had adjustments made so the clutch first engages the throw out after more pedal travel. There is no slipping but very short release and right after pressure is applied to the throw out.

Any ideas what is going on?

Not the clutch.

Master Cylinder starting to go.

Common failure item...but good news is that we have them on the site.
