Chrysler Colt/Vista 1990-1993 Repair Information



The clutch driven disc contains asbestos, which has been determined to be a cancer causing agent. Never clean clutch surfaces with compressed air! Avoid inhaling any dust from any clutch surface! When cleaning clutch surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid.

The clutch assembly consists of a single dry disc and diaphragm spring pressure plate. The throwout bearing is controlled by a shaft mounted horizontally in the clutch housing. All models, except the 1991-92 4-speed Colt hatchback and 1993 Colt w/1.5L engine, are equipped with a hydraulic clutch. This system uses a master cylinder, located in the engine compartment to activate a slave cylinder located in the bell housing, which in turn moves the clutch release lever.

The 1991-92 4-speed Colt and 1993 1.5L Colt are equipped with a cable operated clutch.
