Re: PLEASE help!!!! 88 80q

Hate to say this but I would change the slave and master cylinder for
the clutch along with the hose and all brake fluid flushed...
A little pricey but my girlfriend's 300zx did the same thing and after
the repair no more grinding AT ALL!!
She had driven the car for almost a year before the slave cylinder crapped
out on ME driving in downtown FT. Worth... not fun but I managed..
