106 Gti Clutch Problem

Recommended Posts

Dan Ingram

My friend has a 106 GTi and the clutch has stopped working completely. Not really knowing anything about 106s does the clutch work via a cable or is it hydrualic. Also if it does come to taking the gearbox out does anyone have any tips to make life easier??

It's cable, check the top of the gearbox first to see if the clutch lever moves when someone pushes the pedal.

Thats the first thing i'll be checking. Just wanted to make sure it was a cable and not some hydraulic system. Are there any known faults with arms snapping or anything like that?

The clutch stopped working on my 205.... it turned out the thrust bearing had come off the lever arm and was hanging freely from the input shaft having been mashed around a bit!

 

New, thrust bearing and hopefully all is dandy.

As Adam says, the release bearings go awol or collapse and the auto adjuster cables go schitzo too. Better replaced with a manual one IMO. It's an awful cable to replace, make life easier by unbolting the clutch pedal and tearing out the sound deadening if you're a savage.
