'95 9K Aero
So I replaced my clutch with a SPEC stg. 1 disc and pressure plate a while back , and while I was at it I also replaced the slave, master and hydraulic line which were all looking past their prime.
The clutch disengages with no trouble but is slow or 'drags' when it re-engages or when I lift my foot off the clutch pedal. This makes low speed maneuvering tough, and when shifting at high power/tq causes a nasty clutch slip
(which I can actually hear) for a split second before the clutch fully bites. Can't be good.
I have a proper pressure bleeder and have bleed a few litres of brake fluid through the clutch line so I'm fairly sure there is no air in the line. My next step is to do a reverse bleed (applying pressure at the nipple) to see if that helps.
My question for the forum is how fast does your clutch pedal bounce back after being released? I can literally take my foot off it and it will be slow enough that I can lift my foot fully off the pedal before it snaps back. I remember the clutch pedal being pretty responsive before... I'm looking for a reality check here.
Second question is if anyone has experience with ProParts slave cylinder from eEuro. I was warned about ProParts... and the slave was the only non OEM part I used when I replaced the whole clutch hydraulic system. Has anyone else had issues with the slave binding up or being slow? I've also noticed that the slow engagement is a function of temperature- the colder it is the more sluggish the clutch pedal.
Any help/thoughts here would be grand -
