clutch disengaged
« on: March 02, 2014, 04:55:23 PM »
So and some people saw I bought an A4. a smashed a4 but a running a4 none the less. The damage isnt really bad and I got it from a friend for dirt cheap and hauled it off the next day via towing it with a truck and more friends. The reason we towed it was because the clutch seems to be disengaged.  You can start the car and change through every gear but it doesn't move. The slave cylinder will push out but it doesn't automatically retracted so the pedal stayed limp ( this was only after we took it off the tranny, before the pedal came back fine) if I put the slave back in the pedal retracts fine again. But stoll nothing. My guess is the clutch is disengaged.  It worked when the kid parked it so I dont think there is clutch damage.  So what could be holding the clutch open? I know this is subarus but just seeing if anyone could help me with my project

Maybe the friction material has separated, so there's nothing for the FW/PP to clamp?  I can't think of anything that would fail from sitting in such a way.

Thats why im at such a loss. I cant find anything else like it. I can start the car and it males no odd noise. So it doesnt sound like anything is moving In there. Im going to pull the access panel, assuming there is one, I heard there was. And try and see whats up and if I can get the plates to go back together
