so the other day i'm driving, and my fucking clutch snapped in two. i have no idea how it happened, but heres a pic.





i didnt know what was going on at the time, but none of my shifts wanted to go in, and when i went from first to second, i had to give it alot of pressure. then it wouldnt take any of them. so i turned it off and had it towed to my mechanic. he dropped the tranny and then i found out about the clutch. so i bought a new clutch plate, had it installed, picked it up the next day. now second gear grinds everytime i shift. no matter what. if the car is in neutral and i shift without the clutch pressed, it'll grind too. theres like, no wall like there should be. the only way i can get it into second is if the car isnt moving, then i can launch the car in second and go to third. to avoid problems, i;ve been going from first to third, but what do you think it is? i have a feeling its the second gear syncro.

can a syncro just come loose from shifting with no clutch?

he might have not bled the clutch cyclinder correcty... u have to hold back the arm wit a ratchet strap or suttin along those lines.. and then u need to press and release the clutch a few times hold the clutch to the floor and then open the bleeder.... just a thought

the car is in dominican republic, where should i take it? my only option to have ia warrentied is to ship it to puerto rico, which i think would cost more than the repairs. i bought the car in miami though, so i think its only fair i gget warrenty work. i just wish i knew how... i'm selling the car though, so all i want is to fix it and get rid of it.
