This is the bent spring from the pressure plate...so it doesn´t declutch enough, because pressure plat doesn´t rest flat!!

Unbelievable !!! - We installed the new Clutch set (pressure plate + discs) today but it´s the same problem again - I can´t shift into the 1. gear and reverse gear when engine is running!!

Flywheel - Pressure plate - Discs - Slave - Tube Line / everything is new and changed - it doesn´t work!!

The Slave cylinder press only 1 cm into the pressure plate - is this enought, or is this the problem? But why? Is there air in the system...? Anybody an idea, please help....

Make sure you bleed the slave cylinder. There are instructions posted here somewhere. As I recall, you essentially grab the clutch pedal and pull it back towards the seat several times, then fully depress the pedal, repeat as necessary to pull all air out of the system.

Hello on everybody!

 

The problems are solved! Unbelievable what happened - this is a long story, but let me tell you:

 

After removing the gearbox for the third time we also removed the flywheel. Then we bolt the pressure plate on the flywheel and simulate the lift from the slave cylinder - we saw now that the first disc in the pressure plate goes free (declutch) but the second one on flywheel side not!! But why? We don´t know - there are 6 springs outside the pressure plate - three on the top and three on the bottom - this springs connect the two parts from the pressure plate (between them there is one disc) If this items work correct both discs are "free" during declutch...

So we bent (!!!!) this three springs on the bottom with a tire lever (!!!)  till such time we think it works...after this we installed all the parts again and unbelievable - it wooooooooooooooooooooooorks!!!

I have bought 2 brand new clutch kits and both are damaged?? Unbelievable - I am really amazed about the quality of the parts I have ordered from US. Two pressure plates and both doesn´t work - Certainly we have also adjusted the second pressure plate - so I have a second one in stock!

Thanks for all your help and tips - but the fault was only the quality from the (US) parts....unbelievable!!!

 

Best regards from AUSTRIA

Hannes

Hannes,

 

I have been monitoring the clutch problems since 2007. I am on this site everyday for the last 6 years. I have never seen anyone have this problem. You are a very special instance and I do not believe you can judge USA parts from this one of a kind issue. If this was something that happened often....then you have every right to slam our USA parts.

 

My 2 cents.

I also have this thread tagged and read every post. I too have the 07 and have had an 08 clutch installed at eleven thousand miles along with transmission, now have 38,000 still no issues but very heavy clutch pedal as it was when new . I'll go with a after market parts when I need to have a new clutch. nothing worst than to be in a different country and have to order parts over seas and wait, only to find them to be defective. First time I have read about the Ford clutch being new in box defective :headscratch:

Glad it all good :kookie:

I had my clutch upgraded to the 2010 system. My 2008 has 14,000 miles(22900 Kms). I am happy with the results, here's what I have noticed so far:

- Softer peddle as everyone has indicated

- Easier starting, less drag

- Shifter is smoother

- Engine speed between shifts is lower, part of re-tune in TSB

- Smoother engage from take off

- No hiss from under car

 

All together I am pleased.

Hello on everybody!

 

Please don´t misunderstand me - this is no attack to somebody, but I have wasted a lot money about this stupid fault! I have bought 2 clutch kits and both doesn´t work? So what would you say if this happens to you? We tried a lot of things (new hydraulic tube line, bleed for hours,....) but nothing helps!!

And after asking TASCA PARTS the only answer was that we have made a mistake during installation!! This isn´t a prudent answer - it makes me angry, because if you know how the parts are build then you also know that it isn´t possible to install them wrong! 

But now it works and I´m happy - but afterwards again - I don´t understand why this happens....

 

Best regards from AUSTRIA!

 

Hannes

 

Thanks all again for help!!

 

@grabber: it is not really necessary to change the tube line, believe me - now I have a lot of experience .... ;)

I´m happy that my snake bites again.....

Just wanted to let everyone know if you still need to do this upgrade. I just ordered my parts today through Tasca, (BTW thanks for this info!), my price shipped came out to $984.82. My local shop price would have been $1360.51 PLUS another $115 for taxes. Needless to say this is a HUGE savings! Plus the guy at Tasco already had the parts list in front of him because they get so many orders and knew what he was talking about. Also as a plus in case your interested, they take payments through Paypal which allows you to take advantage of 6 months no payments/no interest which gives you time to pay on it if you need to.

 

My 09 had a clutch upgrade done in May of 2011 by the previous owner but at that time the dealer was working off an older tech bulletin and used the original parts for the car and not the 2010 upgraded parts. The factory clutch went out at 20k miles and now this one that was installed back then is slipping out at 36k miles. Hopefully this one, now that it's the correct upgrade, will be much better!
