  2. Clutch change difficulty?

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    How hard is it to drop the transmission on a 2005 RSX-S? Compared to an Integra or Civic (takes me about 4 hours)? I think the pressure plate is bad or a spring popped loose. Went to SF last night and barely got home. Feels like the clutch only goes in halfway. Got a quote for $900, so that's...

  11. Bled Clutch No air - now pedal is on floor.

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    A week ago I went to drive and the car would not go into first. After some time I ended up starting in second, barely. I pulled into the gas station I just left and started researching. My conclusion is it is probably the CMC or CSC as the car shifts fine when engine is off. Also my clutch was...

    Came out of the car at 91800km. Looks like it's the 2nd clutch of the car, as the friction surface still looks good. Flywheel needs resurfacing, obviously. It's 10.25lbs, so very light compared to the 18 or whatever the Type-S has. 350 OBO.
