So I know it's been way too long to do anything about it now, but I wanted to post these to show this clutch..
Because I was asked to post up pictures of the clutch once I got it out, so here it is.. let me know what you think..

It's kind of hard to tell from the pictures but the pressure plate and flywheel both still have the grooves in them where they were machined.. it honestly doesn't even look to be broken in completely..

Exactly, that clutch looks brand new with minimal wear just needs to be finished being broken in.

So I guess my next question is this, If I put this clutch back in and drive it for say another 5k or so and it doesn't quit slipping then what? buy a new one?

Or if I take it on your advice and put it back in, will you stand behind it if it doesn't quit slipping? I don't want to do this again...

1. It never squealed or anything? That would make me think glaze.

2. It's VERY uncommon, but sometimes they do need a shim...

I'll admit, that is just odd to me

no it never made a noise, other than the shuttering when the disc would break free, a shim should be more for taking up the free space between the throw out and pressure plate fingers.. and there wasn't enough space there to need one

my biggest thing with this clutch is, there was absolutely no give in this clutch the first 1900 miles.. then one day out of the blue as described in my earlier posts, it just gave up..

there was no trying to slip the clutch off the line when it was first installed, it was an on/off switch.. my gf bitched about it constantly lol, telling me that my driving was pissing her off..

No big deal there lol

so I continued to drive it until I knew for sure that it wasn't going to get any better, parked the car until I could get it apart.. Life happened and well I was finally able to pull it apart and what you see is what I found, so I'm left scratching my head as to why the clutch was slipping..

so any input on that would be greatly appreciated

Give me a call so we can go over things from the beginning, which I believe was 2 years ago...Chris, 817-750-2000

yes it was, problem started less than 6 months after install.. car was parked due to the problem, too much going on in life to deal with it at the time.. its been sitting since..
I do not expect you to replace the clutch under warranty, but it was suggested that I re install it and "finish breaking it in" but if I am to do that I want to know if the product will be stood behind if it continues to slip, Because it looks brand new, I will put it back in and try again.. but I don't want to do it if it's not going to be covered

If that is not in the cards for me cool, I'll buy a new clutch and move on..
as you can see from the pictures there is almost no wear at all in a little over 2500 miles even considering the clutch was slipping

I'm not trying bust anyone's *****, it is what it is.. I know its out of warranty, and that is my fault.. i just want to know why it started slipping and not holding power when visually there is noting wrong with it

It doesn't appear to be slipping, please call me to go over things in detail so I can make a more accurate assessment in a timely manner as I can tell you're frustrated with the head beating against the brick wall. Trying to help you with a 2 year old situation is doable, we stand behind our stuff, but I want to have a conversation with you to go over things in detail.

Hopefully this makes sense.

Just a thought, but could this be causing problems? I just now pulled that apart and seen all the grooves and notches that have warn into it already.. and they seem to be very uneven in length and how far they go out towards the edge..

Sorry we were out to lunch, but good talking to you after we got back and returned your phone call...the wear in those pics isn't going to cause the clutch to slip

Idk I'm at a loss with it, nothing peaks my interest as being the cause of it anymore..

I'm going to re-install, and if it still will not work like its supposed to after I put some more miles on it, I'll use it for a paper weight or turn it into a clock.. lol

At this point I feel there is nothing to lose, besides an hour or two of my time.. and if it does still slip I'll post videos up here before I pull it back out, and this time it wont take me a year to get to it..

I'll keep you posted through the next few weeks of driving, It's going back together Saturday
