This may depend on why you are replacing the cable. If the cable broke at the clutch end, then you'll simply remove that part, keeping the washers, etc. from that end. If not, then you'll need to use a screw driver to remove it (Look just BEHIND the plastic housing on the top of the motor and you'll see what looks like a wormy-looking piece of rubber... this is near the end of your cable.)

After you remove that, you need to get under your clutch pedal and pop the pin that holds it in place (unless this is why you're replacing it, then it MAY be detached, but not necessarily.)

Once you've detached both ends, you'll need to pull the cable through the fire-wall. Keep track of which washers, etc. go where and what end goes where, although it outta be pretty easy once you find the clutch cable!

Put the new cable through the firewall, then attach the cable to the pedal under the steering wheel. You'll need to put the new pin back through the back of the clutch pedal.After you're done with that, under the hood (there's also an adjustment there, and you want the clutch to fully engage OR you can damage your clutch driving it without adjusting it properly!) you'll need to reattach that end of the clutch cable, THEN BE SURE TO ADJUST IT PROPERLY!

When you push the clutch pedal, the clutch should fully engage (With the pedal fully depressed, the car should NOT be in gear at all!). You can get away with a little bit of driving with it somewhat out of adjustment, BUT you do NOT want to drive it if it it's too loose or too tight (generally it's best to start off a little loose, then tighten it until it's right where it outta be, and you can feel it... there outta be no slippage whatsoever! If so, it's too loose.

Best to you and all the other Subie owners out there! The best cars on the road! :)

Hope this helps!

It is a BIG job. Unless you have a lot of tools and are a good mechanic, take it to a garage. If you want to do it yourself get a manual from AUTOBOOKSONLINE.COM.

Clutch housing, torque converter housing

The bell housing surrounds the clutch assembly. Mounted between the engine and the transmission.

It probably has a hydraulic clutch so you will have to bleed the air out of it.

the last time i changed the spark pluges in my 86 subaru gl wagon, i took the engine out. seriously, it needed a clutch at the time.

Check; coolant, fan, fan clutch and fan clutch solenoid, blocked or partially blocked lines and coolant gallery.

Time to change a clutch depends entirely on who is doing it. If you want a quote of flat rate time, call a local garage or your Subaru dealer's service department.

look under the dash at the top of your clutch pedal ;)

i have the same problem on my 95.Heard it it may be the trans. solenoid or( clutch? )teeth gears worn. In the mean time put your fwd fuse in and its fine.

If it has a hydraulic clutch, I believe they can not be adjusted. When the pedal travel is no longer acceptable the clutch disc must be replaced.

that should cost between 375 to 600 depending on the quality of the parts used, and the rate of the shop.

no, they are supposed to be self adjusting.

It is mounted to the clutch housing. Have someone push on the clutch pedal and follow the movement of the cable. From the driver side look down towars the clutch housing, it is on top.

I assume you mean the clutch pressure plate. If that is what you mean there may not be a cover. On older cars and trucks there is a flywheel cover on the bottom of the bell housing. At any rate to replace the clutch pressure plate you will have to remove the transmission. Then the bell housing to gain access to the clutch plate mounting bolts.

First remove front axels, then remove the transmission, undo clutch bell housing. Add on new clutch pressure clutch bell housing......put the transmission back in and axels

The neutral safety switch or (clutch safety switch) is above the clutch pedal near the fire wall. It is a small black (on my Subaru Impreza) button that is about half way between the pedal and where the clutch arm is attached.

It depends on the slave cylinder that you are asking about. The slave cylinder for a hydralic clutch would be neer the bell housing to disengage the clutch. The slave cylinder for drum brakes would be inside the drum between the two shoes, and pressure applied into this cylinder would engage the brakes.AnswerThe clutch slave is inside the bell housing on most of these. You have to pull the transmission etc to change it out. ANSWERSTRANSMISSION HOUSING OUTSIDE FLUID PIPE

Absolutely!. If the rear seal on the crankshaft is leaking the oil from the engine can migrate to the bell housing and the clutch. It is also possible that the front seal on the transmission can leak and migrate to the clutch.

When you stop, you may be letting the clutch out to early.
