My problem is with my 1997 outback 5sp w/ 125,000miles
Story goes, about 3 weeks ago the clutch stopped returning to regular height. It was a sudden occurrence, fine one moment and then just stopped. While driving it home the clutch began to disengage less and less until it got to the point where I was driving without disengaging the clutch.
Since then I have done the following.
Replaced hoses, no change in pedal
Replaced slave cylinder, no change
Replaced master cylinder, no change
Bypassed clutch damper, slight change, but still not returning
Each time this was done I completely flushed the fluid through the system while bleeding. And made sure that there were no bubbles in the bit of hose I was using.
For my next step I removed the boot around the slave cylinder while the pedal was at max compression, so the slave cylinder was at it's max extension. I saw that the internal cylinder was extended about 5/8" past the edge of the outer cylinder.
My ultimate question is whether or not the next step should be to replace the clutch, and supporting items?
It is costly and time consuming, and I am poor. So any other ideas or anyone that might have experienced this already, to either confirm or tell me I am going about this all wrong?

Sounds like you may be in for a new clutch.

It is time to pull the trans.
Has anyone tried changing the clutch by moving the motor forward on an OBW? And if so can you get to the rear main seal to replace it that way?
