Mine ended up being the Clutch release lever, known as a fork. The Fork ends up wearing away hence its more difficult to put into gear. To Buy from Chrysler it is approx 250 and from my experience you can not buy a copy part. I ended up sending mine to an engineering firm, they welded and fabricated it back, mechanic put it back in and jobs a gooden, runs sweet now.

Was thinking about this post this morning and it occurred to me that my gearchanges are very light and smooth at the moment - fingertip changes, right from starting up - and I do a lot of gear changing as my run to work is 7 miles, of which virtually all is along winding country lanes, so the ATF+4 has worked well in my gearbox. I'm about to get the clutch changed and rear oil seals replaced, so I'll get an oil change done in the gearbox at the same time, will be using the same stuff again.

Adeel43 - Once you have taken out the Fork take it to a half decent mechanic he will be able to weld it up for you, and grind it into shape.
Actd - When getting your clutch done, try getting it done off someone who has replaced one of these before, as if its not done correctly you have to replce the Slave & master Cylinder, which can cost another 200.

Can someone clarify how much ATF4+ is required to do a full gearbox oil change?

Just phoned the dealer and they quoted me 21.09 + vat for 5l and said I would need at least 4l for a full change!

On my old accord it only needed 2l of oil for a change so just want to know they are right before I order.

Changing a clutch cannot in itself ever damage the master/slave cylinder. Only abuse and not taking due care and attention can do this. These cars are no different to any other front wheel drive car.

It won't damage it, but if it is not taken off correctly it will loose fluid, you cannot Bleed the master/slave cylinder as it is a sealed unit, hence i mentioned get someone to do it who is familiar with these cars.

Another myth. You can bleed them you just need to know how.

I am not disagreeing with you, it is always best to get a competent mechanic for any work. However as long as sensible precautions are taken any decent mechanic can do the job.

THanks - it's going to Motorland, who seem to specialise in these vehicles, and they seem to know what they are talking about (I hope).

I think that's about right - I seem to remember ordering 4 litres for mine, the price you have isn't bad.
