New Td5 Clutch Problem

Postby Hawkertempest » Tue 23 Dec 2008 11:41 pm

I have just fitted a new Clutch assy including dual mass flywheel.
Had trouble getting the air out when bleeding.
After much frustration replaced Master Cylinder and slave cylinder.
Reverse bled system again and I am still having problems getting into reverse and sometimes "crunch" other gears.
All parts are new genuine land rover.
The only thing I haven't done is change the transmission oil.

Did you put the plate on the right way round? It will fit on either way, but drags when you try to change gear. These clutches also need to settle in and the ones I have done always need to be driven for a while before the clutch works properly.
