well it's hard when i step on it but it's still harder before i replaced my clutch.. i also asked someone to press the rod all the way down while removed and the rod pushes up..

can't think of anything else i did wrong aside from the slave cylinder being broken??


- is the push rod suppose to fall off like that? i just left it hanging on the side when i remove them the transmission and the rods just fell on the floor..

also are the pressure plate springs suppose to be in compress position when all is in place and shipping plate (star lock) remove? i just wanna rule this one out because my old pressure plate (the one i remove) is stretched out..

1: is the pressure plate springs suppose to be compress even if i remove the shipping plate (star shrunken like lock) like this image:
again thanks all in advance for the help..
