Dang! Too late to the party it looks like. Had issues first time I engaged the clutch backing out of the dealership shop after they prepped the car. Still hate it at 300 miles. PM me if I can get in on the deal still or please send me spring manufacturer and P/N please.

This might just be what the doctor ordered. Will look down in there during the weekend. 6'5" here so I'm not looking forward to stuffing my head down there.

You can find the part number if you go back just a couple pages. I only ordered 10 springs so you're out of luck.

Its not all that comfy to get to, but its pretty quick with the right tools.
Just get rid of the current spring now, and you'll be so much happier! then work on getting the Century Spring to minimize the tiny bit of extra play with no spring.

The "right tools" being a small flathead and needlenose, correct? I need to get down there and take my spring off soon.

np. I haven't gotten a shipping email yet but I placed the order on Monday afternoon (8/22). I'm assuming they already shipped (I have already been billed) so I'll update you guys when they arrive. I thought about having you guys send payments early but I am more comfortable waiting until I have the product in my hands - that way I won't have to deal with paypal reimbursements if something happens to the order.

I honestly only used a very long set of needlenose pliers. Something like the straight pliers here...

and a scrap piece of wooden closet rod to push down on the clutch to release the pressure from the spring. That way i didn't have to wedge myself under the dash too much.

I used the long pliers to pull the retaining ring. Then pushed in the clutch. Again with the pliers, from the right side i pushed the pin to the left side, then grabbed the pin and pulled it the rest of the way from the left side. It was a little more complicated, once i got the replacement spring, to put everything back together because of the spring making it a bit harder to line everything up perfect. but not too hard.

Looks like they want a 4 piece minimum.

Vaughanabe13, put me down for 1 if you still have an extra.
