CAUTION: When installing the clutch, apply grease to each part, but be careful not to apply excessive grease. It can cause clutch slippage and judder.
CAUTION: Do not apply more grease than necessary. Too much grease could cause clutch slip or Judder.
NOTE: When supporting the transaxle assembly, make sure that the lifting force is applied to a wide area, not to a small localized area. CAUTION:
This bulletin provides a service procedure for the removal and installation of manual transaxles with the "pull" type clutch system.
"Pull" or "push" type clutch systems refer to the direction of operation to disengage the clutch relative to the flywheel. In a "pull" type clutch system, the release bearing is attached to the clutch cover fingers and "pulls" the clutch cover away from the clutch disc (away from the flywheel), disengaging the clutch.
All 1996 Model Year and newer vehicles equipped with manual transaxles except Accents which have the "push" type clutch system.
