How to Repair the Clutch on a 1995 Ford F250

158

The 1995 Ford F-250 was available with either an automatic or a manual transmission. The manual transmission model uses a standard single disc clutch to disengage the engine from the transmission so that you can stop and start the vehicle’s motion, as well as shift the transmission. Over time as you use the clutch, it will wear out, and the discs will need to be replaced with fresh friction material. The friction material is similar in nature to brake lining material. Expect it to take the better part of a day to a day and a half to repair the clutch in your F-250.

Tools Used: Tools, Set of metric sockets and ratchet handle, Set of metric combination wrenches, Floor jack, Jack stands, Pry bar, Hammer, Drain Pan, Clutch alignment shaft
