    Default Clutch Pedal Release

    I'm looking at an 06 Rubi and when I test drive it the other day the clutch bothered me a little. It engaged at the very top (toward driver.) The dealership looked at it and said it was good to go. What do you guys think?

    Also, someone suggested pressure plate getting weak. Would the pressure plate be replaced with a clutch job?

    Not unless it's bad. Usually it's just the cluth disk that is replaced.

    The clutch disk sits between the flywheel and the pressure plate, and unless the pressure plate is burnt/scored/cracked or the springs ('fingers') are weak, they won't replace it.

    Different vehicles have different let off's, even the same type rig can have a different let off point.

    I'm not sure what the newer rigs are like, but being way at the top doesn't sound right to me. But it may be within spec.

    How many miles on it?

    Even if the clutch is worn I don't think they are that expensive and not that hard to change. If the price is right I say go for it and then change the clutch.
    I'm Mike, make sure you spell it right, because I do not want to get the wrong A$$hole in trouble.

    If you do not have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time do do it over?

    Should still be covered under the warranty. If it was/is a private sale, I think you can transfer the warranty for $500 but then again with the state of Jeep it might not be available.

    clutch is a wear item like brakes, waranty won't cover it i don't think. Changing the clutch plate with out doing pressure plate is pointless if has some miles on it. You have to figure how hard it has been drove. You can keep a kit and not worry about it. It is easy to change once tranny is out. Tranny can be out in about 2hrs if your know how.

    if the clutch petal is engaging and releasing at the top then this just sounds like you got an annoying hydraulic clutch.

    Unless there is slippage or the petal is on/off at opposite ends then it is probably in good shape
