A few weeks ago my clutch pedal started getting very stiff. I haven’t really driven the car for a few months due to the bad weather. Today I tried to free it off, but now it’s completly seized. I’ve started preparing the car for the work, going to remove the gearbox and strip it down, probably change the clutch at the same time too. Car is a second car so not in too much of a rush. Planning to do a suspension refresh as well, so the whole rear end is going to be dropped out.

Any my one got any advice??

By the way, this is a new website and I’ve only got it up and running, I have a few interesting projects on the go which I plan to blog about and share information and photos. Currently I’m developing some new rear lights for my lotus and I also have got back to working on my locost. Posts to come.

Not removed one from an elise but done plenty of those seized arms on other models- rover 220/mgf etc
You wont free it off satisfactory
Common problem with them seizing in the bushings
Be carefull trying to hammer as the bottom bushing can crack the gearbox casing
We used to cut the shaft with a grinder and drive out with a drift
New ones are dealer only
Hope this helps

Thanks for the advice re cracking the casing. I’ll get it out and post up the photos, you can judge how it looks when the box is removed.

I assume that the bushes are retained when replacing the arm? Was looking at the modded arm with grease nipple fitted.
