Hi All,

The stock clutch on my 2005 Elise stopped disengaging at the end of a recent track day. No slipping at all, just no disengaging at all (or very very little) I assumed I had some air in the hydraulics, so I bled them, but that didn't help at all.

The slave cylinder is moving about an inch under full pedal stroke, which seems normal to me, indicating the hydraulics are operating properly.

I am suspecting the pressure plate may be busted. But I would like to be more sure before I open up the trans. Does anyone know offhand what the normal travel is on these cars?

Thanks,
Josh

Yes, it should move about an inch when functioning properly.

I know this because I had my significant other help me bleed the clutch a few weekends ago. She let up on the pedal before I said to and let a huge air bubble into the system. The slave only moved maybe 3-5 mm after that...

Sounds like something else is broken :(
