This is the worst thing thatís ever happened in my 10 years of owning this car and Iím just so sad at this point.
I took the time to do the work myself and installed a brand new XTD flywheel PP and clutch and while shifting from 3-4 I must have Misshifted or something because I got locked in gear and was revving at its limit, it took a few seconds for me to get it out of gear and I put it back into 5th and limped home.
I pull over to find this, my PP is striking my bell housing and turned it into glitter.. itís still touching it so I got the car towed after pulling off the highway in hopes of not destroying the tranny case completely.
Any guesses as to what happened? I triple checked bolts with lock tight and shitty torque wrench upon installation, the car can still be put in gear while off and driven but the clutch is dragging completely.
I took so much time from work I wonít be able to touch the car for at least a few months . But what should I do when I do pull it down?
Can I have this transmission welded? Iíve found a few 1g AWD tranny cases for sale for $110-$230 shipped should I order one of those and attempt to swap internals?
Do I order new clutch from NOT EBAY? Use old clutch that just most likely came apart? ( obviously probably not )
Fork in me potatoes.
