My 2002 sat in storage for a period of time. Long enough so that the surface of the flywheel was rusted and this caused the clutch to bind with it. It engaged OK but didn't want to let go -- it acted like the two were stuck together... just put it in the FWIW category.

Good luck,


: Wow, what a great site!!
: I own a '72 2000 Touring (3440556). Would welcome any contact from other Touring / '02 owners.
: Please can someone make any suggestions on the following problem.The clutch seem to be slow to release, when pressure is taken off the pedal? Have checked the slave cylinder and it seems fine. Wondering if it may be the connector hose, between the slave cylinder and the metal pipes back to the master cylinder, "ballooning" when the clutch pedal is depressed and released. Cheers, looking forward to your replies. Dog
