EM clutch cross shaft question
Posted by: blackspyder ()
Date: January 04, 2018 04:46PM

So I am rebuilding my clutch cross shaft and came across something interesting.

In the shop manual, it shows that there are only 2 of the clutch ball "nylon seats" used, and they are used on only 1 of the studs.

But upon disassembly, my cross shaft had 3 nylon seats, 2 installed correctly, and 1 installed at the base on the opposite side on the other ball stud.

I searched and did see 1 or 2 posts showing only 2 nylon seats being used.

Now this shaft is original to the car ,and to my knowledge never been disassembled. I never had any issues with anything pertaining to clutch release, shifting, or anything.

Before I reassemble, which is correct, use 2 like the shop manual states, or have other people seen 3 being used?

DON'T FIX IT

others may disagree

I am rebuilding because my original one was a little worn, so I was planning on putting in new nylon seats and new seals and new grease and installing in my NOS cross shaft
