HI there,   It seems as if I may have a clutch problem?

                1973 2002 base I call her Grizelda, drove to 

                work and parked fine, Until I got in and started 

                her up to come home,after a long hard day.

                the clutch peddle seemed unusually  loose/free/deep

               with no resistance . That said......I tried to put her into 1st gear  and the spinning of gears presented itself as that famous grinding sound , I shut it off, and here I am. Fortunately I have a 1972 2002 back up that I love equally  that in the 10 years that I owned her "Prudance" I call her......has never presented this issue? Can anyone pass on their expertise in this matter?

Ps. I have a extra slave cylinder in my trunk, as I was warned to keep one for my 72,.... and never used it?  Thanks DEZ

 check to see that the rod from the clutch pedal to the master cylinder is actually attached to the pedal .... I had that bolt come loose from the pedal.






The pedal to cylinder pushrod has been known to break on some replacement master cylinders, like mine did once. Get a pushrod from an early car if you can find one - they're made of steel. The later aluminum pushrods seem to have occasional issues.




no bimmer, for now

    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
