- My model of MX-5 is: Mk2
- I’m based near: Wimborne__
- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: Removing the clutch pedal assy
I am plagued by, sounds like a creaking/dry joint noise coming in the more I use the clutch pedal. First thing the noise is not there then eventually in a short space of time it appears.
I really do not wish to take the pedal of from the bracket as it looks as though it could be a real problematic job especially trying to reconnect the spring in the correct sense.
The two nuts and the top retaining bolt came off and out no problem along with the plastic nut but the assy. would not come free. Further investigation showed the steering control column has at the base a bracket which is welded to the column and retained by two of the clutch pedal nuts which have been removed. The column looks to be in two halves, with the inner able to slide into the outer and facilitate removing itself from the clutch bracket assy. then allowing me to remove the complete clutch pedal assembly, but I cannot get this to move or slide. I cannot see any other nuts or bolts. Am I missing something here. Does the steering column tubing actually slide into one another or is it captive. Can someone shed some light on this for me as to how??
Cheers in advance
