We recently replaced the Clutch on our 4WD Wagon. The clutch cable is frayed and looks like it is about to snap. I would like to take the hill holder out of the picture entirely. I think I can just remove the Hill Holder Cable from the Rocker Arm Assembly and be done with it. Has anyone done this?

You can do it, but you need to install a spring for the clutch fork return.

Thats what I thought, after messing around with it and learning how it worked it seemed as though I could just take it off and be done with it. Thanks

Theres a spring on the HH mechanism that acts as a return spring for the clutch fork. If you dont want it sticking to the floor, you may want to put a spring on it.

Gotcha, I know a guy here in town who removed his but I have not been able to track him down to ask him. I will check his wifes car to see if he put a spring in. If not then I will put one in her 85 as well as mine. Thanks

i took mine off yesterday an now it seems that the car drives somewhat better,thinking the HH was sticking a little.the way i look at it,if you need the HH to help you out.then you need to either practice alot more or get a automatic.:-p

oh btw,took mine off on a 94 ej-22 that has the return spring for the clutch on the pedal itself(which i also had to replace awhile back.)

I just unhooked it from the throw out fork. It returns just fine still. It does feel a lot 'softer' when I push on the clutch pedal however.

I was reluctant to teach my nephew how to drive a manual with that Hill Holder. I want him to know how it really is to be on a steep hill and need to use the clutch and gas to keep you steady. of course there is always the impromtu Hill Holder called the E-Brake. Either way I am concerned about it sticking just a tad because the adjustment is kinda touchy. Thanks
