    02A slave, T4 master, 02J box

    Righto, managed to get a couple of hours in this week!

    First I spent shovelling gearbox oil filled cat litter off the ground...

    The second I spent attempting to get my clutch sorted out.

    I have 02A slave, T4 master, 02J box, HEL all new parts between pedal and the original dmf clutch setup on my 1.8t.

    I tried
    just pumping the pedal
    Pump and hold
    Messibleed/pressure bleeder
    Then all of above with the slave disconnected and raised as high as I could

    No air is coming out, just new clean fluid. Pedal feels firm

    Clutch doesn't do anything, except chip teeth oFf the gears if I try and engage.

    Going to try bleeding once more tonight, then what?

    Thanks lads!

    Is the master cylinder being pushed in enough... full travel?

    i did wonder that but I think so.

    not exactly sure what to test in the system. cant really test the clutch that i can think of? and cant really test any components without buying new, which might be necessary

    i was a bit surprised how much fluid movement is in the resevoir

    Or start it in gear with your foot on the clutch if you have a long drive way

    I did try that last night, it does go forward

    What would that achieve?

    Could I have forgotten something like clutch release bearing etc? What would that do? Don't think I did.... Or put it in wrong?

    If the plate is stuck to the flywheel it should free it. Can't see how the clutch pedal would be firm if the thrust bearing was missing.

    Think I've been here before a long time ago, was a random bolt stuck in the pressure plate or something equally stupid.

    Gearbox off time mate.

    Lift one side with a trolley jack,and start it in gear.Never had a clutch that didn't come unstuck after a short while.

    Of course it will be, but you'll not know until you've wasted hours pointlessy removing the gearbox.

    Looks like it's been sat at the bottom of the pacific for the last ten years.
