    Default Clutch

    Fantastic news, clutch failure at 25,000km's..
    Currently in for replacement!
    What I do understand is that the thrust bearing is sticky on the input shaft, therefore the "stiff" clutch. It was not slipping, just very hard to press, and catching very low.

    Just a hint , but as the tunland has a vac assisted clutch , always adjust the pedal free travel with the engine running

    Hi, RiaanB1025.

    I felt some kind of friction during first months when the pedal travelled in or out, but they did something and itís smooth now and no other problem (near 19.000 km).


    On the other hand, the biting point is very near to the beginning of the pedal travel (or to the end when releasing, if you prefer) so I got the engine stalled several times during the first months. Are your Tunlands like that? Foton guys told me itís normal for that car.

    Exactly my point from new, and they said adjustment, and every time they adjusted, but I was never "confident", until the failure.
    What happen with mine eventually was the locating "spring" for the release bearing broke on the one side, therefore when push the clutch everything push skew, and eventually starting to seize onto the input shaft.

    The clutch adjustment is finicky , I've been loosening the slave cyl mount bolts to check if there's any load on it . If so I adjust the pedal push rod to allow the cyl to butt up to the bell housing with no pressure . This seems to give a good engagement height on the pedal . There's also adjustment on the booster to master cyl push rod . There is a heavy duty pressure plate available if you request it
