The Clutch

Ok I found a thread on this sight yesterday and I cannot seem to locate it now. Some help would be nice but it said somethin about the clutch problem has been solved or that someones dealer had fixed there car by putting new lines from the master cylinder on or they put a corvette master cylinder on and the extra pressure kept it from slipping. Hope someone can help thanks.

there is no fix
there is no TSB
there is no point in doing a master cylinder swap with stock set up.


swaping a master cylinder is NOT going to press the clutch and flywheel togather harder...

the master cylinder is there to provide fluid pressure to push the two parts apart...the clamping force is all done be the springs on the pressure plate.

Yeah I seen that thread also, they said something about shimming up the pressure plate so that the springs exert more force to keep it from slipping.

There was a guy on .net that claimed his dealer fixed it, but when pressed for more details he has disapeared. Possibly a hoax or false alarm.
