Clutch Broke !

Recommended Posts

Just a heads-up....88 MJ Pioneer


While driving in city traffic, i depressed the clutch pedal to shift gears and heard a loud pop.  Truck was locked in low gear and i could not shift it to neutral. 


Feared a transmission removal and slave cylinder replacement, but trouble shooting revealed that the spot welds that hold the shift rod bushing to the S bracket under the dash had sheared, so the clutch was not connected to anything....


Removed the bracket and bushing and rewelded, all is good, but the original factory spot welds were

pretty shoddy....might be worth an inspection on your heep..
