CLUTCH STAYOUT AT HIGH RPM - BUILT ON OR BEFORE 4/25/2010
Publication Date: September 20, 2010
Some 2011 Mustangs built on or before 4/25/2010, with a manual transmission and low mileage, typically 10,000 miles or less (16,093 Km), may exhibit a clutch pedal Stayout condition at very high engine RPM. This condition will generate a concern of the clutch pedal remaining on the floor during high engine RPM shifts. When engine RPM drops, clutch pedal operation returns to normal, but the re-engagement may be abrupt.
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
The clutch pedal Stayout is a condition where at high engine RPM, centrifugal forces on the clutch system can reduce the force with which the clutch diaphragm fingers push against the release bearing. This can result in the clutch pedal staying on the floor until engine RPM decreases and the diaphragm return force increases.
Replace the Brake Pedal and Bracket assembly. Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 206-06.
