    2005 X-Runner 27,090 miles Clutch disc gernaded taking out bellhousing, flywheel, slave cylinder, release forks, and presure plate. X has been at the dealershipship since October 4th, still waiting on regional to call back. Corperate refuses to fix or help out in anyway. Price tag for repairs $2,611. If your going F/I seriuosly concider upgrading your clutch.

    I say screw Toyota and the dealer.

    I have the parts you need. I have the forks, the slave cylinder, a throw out bearing. All that you can have.

    You can get that tranny to a welder and have them weld up that bell housing for next to nothing if you have all the pieces.

    I have a used flywheel in Cali you can have as well if you pay shipping on it.

    If you really need it I also have a used tanny in MD if you want to come get it. The bell housing is fine on it.

    Then you just need a disc and pressure plate.

    I would love to help you get back on the road.

    No problems with the stock clutch, but replaced it with a CC Stage 2 at about 3,000 miles.

    I had that happen to me at 8k. My clutch itself has made a squeeking noise twice and had to be replaced. The truck is an 08 with 13k miles and I don't beat on it.
