Skoda 105/120/130 Estelle, Rapid Clutch Drag – Unable to adjust free play in release arm correctly

61
Download Clutch drag can sometimes be the result of a distorted release arm, which flattens in use from it’s original shape. This causes the rear of the release bearing to foul on the release arm under full stroke of the pedal, restricting the travel of the release mechanism. Visual evidence of this complaint can normally be seen by contact marks on the top rear edge of the bearing, and the top edge of the aperture in the release arm, where the two components have fouled each other in use. In extreme cases, the free play in the release mechanism will be excessive, and there will be insufficient adjustment left on the slave cylinder pushrod to set to the correct dimension. Where this complaint has occurred, the release arm should be replaced to return the release arm to the original dimensions. Pushrod Location Foul Contact Point
