Default Clutch pedal spring on Gen 1

Hi,
Has anyone replaced the clutch pedal spring on a Gen CRV....I've just replaced the clutch slave cylinder (it was leaking at the seal) and then bled the system but everytime the clutch pedal was pressed it had to be pulled back up again , it does return when the bleed nipple is closed though. I asssume the spring has broken or come away and Ive no diagrams to instruct me on it's placement. any help would be appreciated.

One very important point about bleeding brake/clutch lines, if you push the pedal all the way to the floor you can permanantly damage the master cylinder. It is designed so that the fluid pressure keeps it from bottoming out, so while bleeding the system do NOT exceed the normal travel. With that said, the spring should be at the top of the pedal. And you would have to remove the pedal attach bolt and the pushrod to the master cylinder. (do not change adjustment on the pushrod) Unless the spring is broken or missing, that may not be the problem.

If you think that the clutch master cylinder was fine before the slave cylinder was replaced (I'm assuming it was since the slave was leaking), the failure of the clutch pedal to return is caused by air in the line. I just replaced a master cylinder and it took a while to remove the air. Until the air was removed, the clutch pedal stayed at the floor.

Or, you said that the clutch was fine when the nipple was closed? Then that's normal. Simple insure you've bled all air and you're fine.

Either way, it's not the clutch spring - a normal clutch pedal will not return when there is air in the system.

Also, I wouldn't worry about damaging the unit if you've pushed the clutch pedal to the floor - that's the normal travel.

Default Clutch Spring

Hi Again,
Thanks for the replies....I've since bled the clutch system again and it does now feel better I also checked the master cylinder and the spring and they both seem fine , guess you're right - it must be air in the lines, I'll bleed it again in a couple of days. One point if anyone is interested,... I had to replace the Slave cylinder because it was leaking so badly ( 2000 CRV with 59,000 miles....owned for 9 mths) I contacted a Honda dealers who quoted me 106 .00 incl' Vat for the part, I then contacted a local car parts shop who got me the same part ( and I mean it's identical... same numbers etc) for 45.00 incl Vat..........amazing eh! , anyway thanks again.

Yes, my statement was more applicable to the brake master travel than clutch. But still something to be aware of.

Hello there. I am looking for a procedure on how to replace the clutch pad. I've read your post and it seems that you have the idea for this one. Mind if you can share that to me? Thanks.

Welcome to HondaSUV.com.

The thread you posted to is 5 years old, so the OP might not be active anymore.

What do you mean by 'clutch pad'?

You may be talking about the clutch plate or the clutch disk. Start by telling us what kind of vehicle you have and your location. The vehicle's mileage might be extremely informative too. Is it new-to-you or has it developed some symptoms since you got it?

The clutch sits between the engine and transmission.
So you have to remove the transmission from the CR-V in order to get to the clutch components.

It's not easy.

Why do you think your clutch needs to be replaced?
