Throw Out Bearing Fork

The clutch is beginning to slip in my 90. When I replace it should I get a heavy duty throw out bearing fork? I know nothing about this crap but it was suggested by another board member.

If I'm not mistaken, the clutch fork on the v8 is cast iron, as opposed to the rather thin one found on 4 cylinders/tdi's. So If yours isn't showing any signs of wear, then it's probably ok.

The clutch fork is part of the tranny so why would that be different V8 versus TdI??

Would think it would be the same unless the NAS tranny is different than ROW.

No???

I got the run around on the clutch about 5 years ago. 3k later it was the little rubber flex hose between the bulkhead slave cylinder had gotten weak. I would think one of the clutches should last a very very long time if driven accordingly.. It would be worth a try if you havent already replaced it.

Oddly enough they are different. All 4cyl gas and diesel use the stamped steel, v8s use the cast. Not sure if the TO bearing is the same tho

Matt........that's great information.

I wonder if the cast fork can be swapped in for the stamped fork or if there are differences, ie the TOB, etc.

Good thread with pioneering information.......ha!

Make sure it is really the clutch, not bad hydraulics. You must drive it hard as the clutch should last forever.

I dont drive hard at all. My last car I got 160k out of the clutch. It only slips right now in 5th which I was told is the first sign of it going. I only have 69000 miles.

Now. V8 and diesel bellhousings and the throwout assemblies are different.
