Fg Xr6t Clutch Problems

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I've been having a few problems with my clutch. I have a FG xr6t 2011. I was hoping that someone here would be able to help me figure out what the problem is. I'm stuck out in the sticks at the moment, I've hurt my back  real bad and I can't work some money is tight. Basically when I release the clutch pedal it makes a loud click noise. I got down and pressed it in with my hand and I could see where the noise is coming from and it is from around  the spring part that returns the clutch pedal after taking your foot off the pedal. I'm hoping its is an easy fix that I can do myself. Thanks! I have a photo of the part that's making the sound but I am trying to figure out how to insert photo?

ok, it's probably the return spring on the pedal just moving about a bit, but that's only a guess.

hmm, you might need to lever the spring (or the bit of metal itself) away from that bit of metal that it's pushing on, to prevent it from jumping around, as it should move smoothly

Ah I will give it a try thanks. I dont think its actually the spring itself but rather the part of the assembly. I'm pretty sure it's the little black piece at the back that kind of slides horizontally and "Clack". Its pretty hard to see in there. Thanks again for your help Keith.

Yeah actually Keith you can see it move or jump a bit when it makes that noise. Here's the return spring

looks broken. see the plastic at the top side of the spring (black part) could just be angle too though

I can see a crack in that bit of white plastic, That black part is metal. It has a little bolt on the side that can turn and I assume a little rod through the middle of it. I'm going to take it to the mechanics soon but money is tight at the moment and I always like to know what is broken before getting it fixed. Stuck in the sticks as well so I got to go a different guy I've never been to before.

Just an update guys. I had a mechanic have a look and it is definitely the return spring that needs to be replaced. I called ford and they said they can only sell me the entire pedal assembly for about 550. All I need is that 1 part. I tried a wrecker and he said about 250 and he reckons no one will want to sell just that part only the whole pedal assembly. I will keep looking, but I was hoping someone on here might have an old one that they might be willing to part with for a bit cheaper.

Pretty sure you can just use a spring.

From memory someone here had a valve spring modded to fit and repair theirs.

Sorry I am late to the show.

Camo, spot on mate. It is the spring that has snapped. Happened to mine.

Not an easy job if you don't have the tools. It is a valve spring that is in my car right now.

However you will need a die grinder to flatten an edge up a bit and grind the internal part of it to allow it to fit in said place.

 

The alternative is to pay $280 for the pedal set which includes the spring.

Good luck @Duane343

Hey Guys, I too have had the Clutch Return Spring snap and cut my right leg. It's a BA2 Turbo with the T56. The Clutch Pedal was always heavy with the Standard Ford Clutch and after the Xtreme HD Clutch was installed it was just as heavy then it just snapped. In the morning the Pedal is slightly depressed and after a few pumps it seems to come back to normal height. Can you let me know what Valve Spring you used as I thought it had a hook end but if it is a flat end even better. Thanks.

@clevo400, I haven't been on for a while, so late to the party again.

The FG valve spring was used. I believe that the hook would have been removed or cleaned up with a die grinder. I did not do the work.

Mechanic did it for me.
