NC clutch issue

Postby senda » Tue Mar 01, 2011 8:34 am

I was in AX on friday, and after it ends i went to eat somthing. whan I started my car - the clutch refuse to separate and i could not change gears.

After i manage to put the first gear, my clutch pedal did not jump back and i needed to use my leg in order to return the padal to its place.

I do not know if its mean that my clutch is died or that i need to replace the clutch pump?

Please help...

Hmmm...did you bleed the clutch line ahead of time? It sounds like you have clutch/brake fluid leaking (like when I flush the system, that's how the pedal behaves). Is your brake fluid reservoir low/empty or have any leaks under the car?

Yep, sounds like some kind of hydraulic failure. Could be as simple as low fluid but likely a leak, slave, or line failure.

You can but I don't think it's worth it. The clutch line isn't under that much pressure.

The brake/clutch fluid reservoir is up against the firewall on the left-hand side in the US (might be on the right hand side elsewhere). I'd look in your owner's manual for the exact location.

Good luck.

I took in to the garage - it is one of the clutch pumps.

They will order the 2 punps and than we can check which one is not functioning.
