Out of curiousity what would cause a spring to fall out of the clutch disc assy? I'm in the middle of doing a clutch replacement and found one of the springs had "popped" out. Thanks for any info.

defect or failure. Springs should not fall out of a clutch disc. unfortunately, not much u can do about it except replace the disc. unless its brand new i doubt anyone would give a warranty on a consumable item like that.

What type of clutch is it. I know Exedy clutches were known for that for a while. I think they corrected it though.

Not sure what brand but it needed replacement anyway. It's worn down close to the rivets. I'm replacing it w/ an Exedy clutch so I hope they corrected the problem.

also, if someone was constantly beating on the clutch, ie. dropping it at 4000rpms, etc... then it could result in that type of failure after a prolonged period.

I'm running an Exedy Stage 1 for last 10k miles and no problems at all.

Actually, it is actually more common than you'd think. There is a very slight design flaw in the little lips/tabs that hold those springs in place which can cause them to wear down in a specific area, eventually allowing a spring to pop out.

I just read a thread a little while back that did a very good job of explaining this with good pictures and everything. But damned if I can find it again now.

Usually there is some destruction involved, so if yours came out of it okay minus one spring then you are ahead of the game

I'l try and dig up the picture of my clutch from December 09'. A 2'' part of the metal enclosure broke out and released a spring.

Hear is a thread on HT about it, it seems to be an ongoing thing. From what i understand,this happens if the clutch pressure plate forks on one side gets weaker,or a hyper extending clutch or the TOB ear breaks can causes the clutch to engage sideways.

And pics

That looks just like my old clutch disk, LOL. Installing the tranny sure is a PITA when you're by yourself. Tried to muscle it in but no go. Busted out the engine hoist and that made it a piece of cake. Just have to fill her up w/ Redline MTL and she should be good to go. I also changed out the starter contacts, installed new brushes in the alternator, new drive belts and oil pan gasket too.
