strange clutch issue (video included)


Recommended Posts

I'm having a strange clutch issue with my stock master/ slave (ate brand) and 4 speed.

When I press the clutch pedal in slowly (at the same speed as taking a careful step). But if I push on the pedal with a tiny bit of force I feel resistance. I bled the SLA e cylinder last night and nothing changed. I'm at a loss and before I buy a new master and slave cylinder (/mine are only 1.5 years old max)

Please take a look at the video and give me any suggestions on what this might be.

I have had this exact same issue twice. If you rest your foot on the clutch pedal very softly press it will go to the floor with no resistance. If you press quickly with force it will work. Both times I had to install nw clutch masters because they were bleeding by(confirmed both times by a real mechanic, not just me). One thing to make sure of when you install the new one is that the clutch pedal is the same height as the brake pedal. I

had my clutch pedal about an inch lower (not sure why)when I had this issue both times. On the new clutch master I adjusted it out so that the clutch pedal and brake pedal are even. Has worked great so far. So order a new one from BLUNT and adjust it...should fix it

I'm not as dumb as I look

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
