Chrysler recommends the use of special tool C-4676 for disc alignment.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figure 1
- Remove the transaxle.
- Matchmark the clutch cover and flywheel for easy reinstallation.
- Insert special tool C-4676, or its equivalent, to hold the clutch disc in place.
- Loosen the cover attaching bolts. Do this procedure in a diagonal manner, a few turns at a time to prevent warping the cover.
- Remove the cover assembly and disc from the flywheel.
- Remove the clutch release shaft and slide the release bearing off the input shaft seal retainer.
- Remove the fork from the release bearing thrust plate.
- Inspect the components. Replace as necessary.
- Install the throw out bearing, fork and component parts.
- Mount the clutch assembly on the flywheel (Mate the matchmarks if old unit is used). Install the clutch disc alignment tool. Hold the alignment tool in position and loosely install the pressure plate retaining bolts.
- Tighten the bolts a few turns at a time in rotation. Tighten to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
RELEASE CABLE ADJUSTMENT
The clutch release cable cannot be adjusted. When the cable is properly installed, a spring in the clutch pedal adjusts the cable to the proper position, regardless of clutch disc wear.
CLUTCH CABLE REPLACEMENT
See Figures 2 and 3
- Remove the clip from the cable mounting bracket on the shock tower.
- Remove the retainer from the clutch release lever at the transaxle.
- Pry the ball end of the cable from the positioner adjuster and remove the cable.
- Installation is the reverse of removal.
