Super A transmission grinding in neutral

Postby uworkj » Wed May 18, 2022 12:08 pm


My super A transmission grinds when in neutral when I let the clutch out. Any ideas?

Here is the OWNER'S MANUAL, and there's a short section on the clutch beginning on p.46:'s%20Manual/Super%20A%20-%20Super%20AV%20Owner's%20Manual.htm

You might remove the inspection cover on the bottom of the clutch housing to see if there is any obvious problem, such as bad throwout bearing (TOB), or clutch pressure plate fingers "out of wack", such as broken springs, etc.

Take some pictures (or a short video) and post...we do like pictures, plus they might help diagnose the problem. :D
