I'd like to follow up on the clutch pedal clunk my '91 CQ developed on the
Decided to explore the issue further today...
First, I found pieces of a spring on the floor mat.
Dropped the knee bar and saw that the clutch pedal connects with the cylinder
and a bracket. One of the connections has a "over-center spring" within a
white plastic piece that normally pushes against the clutch pedal. This spring
is broken and therefore the plastic piece has lost its connection to the
When I let go the clutch, the pedal engages the broken spring anyway, but it
can certainly miss it too. I am not sure if there is normally a pin there or
just the spring (now broken) pushes the piece against the clutch.
Looked at album and I intend to buy the following:
Over-center spring 443 721 403C
Lock washer N 900 649 01
Are there any other parts that I need? Any BTDT in taking out the broken
spring and other pieces that I should replace? I intend to replace the pivot
pins as well.
The car drives fine, but does this damage the transmission/clutch in any way.
Thanks in advance.
