    Default Clutch not engaging

    Hi guys,

    I finally started my f20 in my sprinter but have an issue with the clutch not engaging.
    The pedal feels fine and I have adjusted it to get as much clutch fork movement as possibly so now think I know what the issue is. The engine was decreased and steam cleaned with the clutch assembly fitted and I'm fairly confident the clutch plate has seized onto the flywheel. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to get it off without removing the box?

    Cheers

    From google... but may not be relevant...

    The simplest procedure can be done in your garage in a few seconds. It assumes that the brakes are working, that the clutch hydraulics are working, the starter motor works, and that the battery is charged. (I suppose it also rashly assumes that you have two feet and at least one hand). Sit in the driver's seat. Pump the brake pedal a couple of times and hold the brakes on firmly with your right foot. Depress the clutch pedal fully with your left foot. Put the transmission in 4th gear (least likely to drive the car away), and engage the starter for about one second. If you're lucky the torque from the starter motor may break the flywheel free from the clutch disk, and the engine will crank over normally. If that doesn't work in the first try or two, move on to Plan B.

    Awesome....

    Don't be surprised if it takes a bit for the clutch to bed back in.
