Having problems with your 1998 Subaru Forester ?
I have a 98 Subaru Forester, and the clutch has finally given out...to replace the clutch I was quoted between $800 - $1300 - so its not worth it to have it fixed. Engine runs fine, shifting has no effect now. Is there an easy way to fix this on my own? I heard the possibility that the clutch cable may be broken. I have not had the car examined, as I dont want to pay for towing...if I cant fix this on my own I am going to give this one to charity.
Sorry for your loss, you should be able to get it changed for less, around 600. Did the clutch slip at all before it broke? Can you now put the car in any gear with engine idling w/out the pedal? If yes, then the clutch is worn to nothing. If no, then it's a broken pressure plate or clutch cable. Does it feel like there is no pedal pressure at all? This indicates no cable or hydraulic pressure (if your is hydraulic) and a cheaper fix. Good luck!
