    Default Clutch problem Cherokee 2,4 Sport Manual

    Hi guys


    Friend of mine's 05 2.4 sport manual is giving clutch or hydraulic clutch actuator problem , we think it's clutch (but not sure) , the symptoms were that depressing the clutch , the clutch pedal became extremely hard to depress and suddenly something gave and now he can not get the car in gear while the car is idling

    Like to know could he opt for a FUCHS kit or any other Ideas ??

    The dealers quote is R2400 for clutch plate, Pressure plate and thrust bearing (Spares only)

    Are the other afternarket stuff worth it ??

    Me thinks not , but what are your ideas !!

    Thanks

    If it has a hydraulic clutch the slave cylinder may have exploded, dont laugh , it happened to my MK1 Cortina.

    Fuchs? You sure it is not Sachs.

    Check the hydraulics first.

    Any sign of fluid leakage? What is the fluid level in the master cylinder resevoir? After the stiff clutch what does it feel like now?

    Unbolt the slave cylinger and see it there is any movement on the actuator rod when depressing the clutch.

    PS. It is Sachs and there might well be a aftermarket clutch kit available. Sachs, Rhine Valeo, LUK Repco are all reputable.
