Normally its attached in some way so when the lever retracts it does not ride on the clutch pressure plate. However I have not had my Nissan apart yet so this is an assumption based on other cars.teamfour said:Is the throwout bearing attached to the clutch lever in any way, or does it simply "ride" in front of it?
inside the bell of the tranny there is a i gues you can call it a fork has 2 arms going around the shaft. the throw out bearing has 2 little retainer clips and clip to the arms and it hols its self to it. hope that helpsteamfour said:Is the throwout bearing attached to the clutch lever in any way, or does it simply "ride" in front of it?
........... :waving: your suppose to clip it in place befor you put the tranny in you better hope it clipped in and not just hookone side then possible turn on you and get locked up...that would suckteamfour said:Thanks for the replies. I pushed the clutch pedal in and I heard a click in the bellhousing. I hope this was the bearing "clipping" itself to the arm.
Everything seems to work OK.
