Clutch release Bearing


Recommended Posts


I have the gearbox out of the car and have soaked the release bearing trying to remove it.

I have pulled the fork out of the gearbox so it is not in the way - the manual does not show a circlip or anything, apparently it should just pull out.

Can anyone confirm this.
