Removal and Installation
Do not reuse CSC (Concentric Slave Cylinder). The CSC slides back to the original position every time the transaxle assembly is removed. This action may allow dust or contaminants to gather on the sliding parts and damage a seal of CSC causing clutch fluid leakage.
Refer to CL-16, "Removal and Installation".
- Do not allow any grease to contact the clutch disc facing, pressure plate surface or flywheel surface.
- Do not clean clutch disc using solvent.
- Remove engine and transaxle assembly. Refer to TM-28, "Removal and Installation".
- Loosen clutch cover bolts evenly while holding clutch cover.
- Remove clutch cover and clutch disc.
Do not drop clutch disc.
- Clean clutch disc and input shaft splines to remove grease and dust caused by abrasion.
- Apply recommended grease to clutch disc (1) and input shaft (2) splines area (A).
Be sure to apply grease to the points specified. Otherwise, noise, poor disengagement, or damage to the clutch may result. Excessive grease may cause slip or shudder. And if it adheres to seal of CSC, it may cause clutch fluid leakage.
Wipe off excess grease. Wipe off any grease oozing from the parts.
- Install clutch disc, using a suitable tool (A).
- Install clutch cover, and then temporarily tighten clutch cover bolts.
- Tighten clutch cover bolts to the specified torque evenly in two steps in the numerical order as shown.
- Install engine and transaxle assembly. Refer to TM-28, "Removal and Installation".
