Clutch pedal bushing?
Hi, hope all are well.

Anyone know of any places still selling the clutch pedal bushing? (1992 Geo Tracker 4wd)

Mine seems to have bit the dust and the pedal started squeaking up horribly after some extreme winter temperatures here. Used to be GM part 96057754 I think but is not available anymore? https://www.gmpartsgiant.com/parts/chevr...57754.html

Thanks, sorry for lack of info. Hope you had a nice trip.

Geo Tracker 1992 4wd, 5 speed stick. 8 valve engine, 2-door, LSI package. (and with a new top finally Big Grin)

Not sure which bushings are broken yet, still have to take pedal apart next warm day.

I sure hope some can be found somewhere. Will try that link there.

RE: Clutch pedal bushing?
only suzuki made those
most body parts are not made aftermarket for this car.
i think china has cloned front finders,
factory parts, of the 3000 parts, maybe a fraction are cloned. by aftermakets,
all the brake parts are made (rockauto full list), but not backing plates, and that rear adjuster and brakelines.
its not a Toyota corolla with 40milliion on the road.
some years of sidekicks only sold 9000 vehicle. after the (infamous tip over fear in the article in "Consumer Reports" )
nobody makes parts gets rich making or selling parts to 9000s cars or the tiny remainder, 20 years later.
and is why I call the car the Underdog. + chapter 11 status in usa, (no cars sold) Bankrupt selling cars in USA>

my guess is you have not even began the job of finding the cause.? or your mechanic never even looked or did the diagnosis?
if you had asked me first (LOL)
id say it fails just like all suzuki do , see my clutch page (linked my signature below or the links below)_

see this page, this is the page i made 11years ago to show how parts needed badly are hard to find or the $1200 MAF sensor pain or buying defective china cloned parts (vast now) (btw, USA perspectives only)
http://fixkick.com/buy-parts.html

how ever one can use many vitara parts world wide and find parts, not here in USA mainland. that match (many do)


did you click my link above, in post 2?
and then in the calif, search box suzuki dealer?
and type in 09307-16001 (only suzuki sells this busing part and then number is owned by suzuki too)

TEST1: (floppy pedal)
if you use a flash light and move the clutch you see the lever of the pedal flex oddly left and right them see the main shaft not move, bingo weld failure. 5 min, work that.



facts:
they all have horrible welds on the pedal at the top of the pedal arm , at big shaft, it's only tack welded, ask any welder how good that works, not good.
so I had to weld all mine, or they broke, (all 3 cars) (mostly for previous owners damage , all my cables were new)
but wait a case can be made , suzuki did this on purpose, to save the firewall, from huge damage, (using the weakest link engineering methods)



my clutch page (start at title logic) (type clutch in my search page land here)

http://www.fixkick.com/tranny/clutch/clu...-kick.html

every sidekick vitara made, do this. (with zero service , cables can be lubed, just like on motor cycles, a fact)
the cable clutch fails, on all of them they all seize at say 150k miles?, less in salt environments (salted roads in Detroit ) or on Ocean Island. RUSTS .

then the owner of the car ignores the stiff clutch, and presses hard , a grown man and can push with 100lbs of force at the pedal. super easy
the pedal is 6:1 lever ratio (ball park) so the force at the top of the pedal and firewall mount is 600lbs (gorilla grade force/ weight?)
that breaks the pedal first. (like clock work we say)
then the owners welds this damage next (pedal in hand as my photos show) (seen first fixed first, no magic here)
next week,...
then the fire wall cracks, oops, a daisy, that is nasty.
my slide show , shows all this classic horror and the cure is new cable every time, then repair the collateral damage.
oops 1
http://www.fixkick.com/tranny/clutch/mik...age_8.html

oops 2 (fire wall wrecked by bad cable)
http://www.fixkick.com/tranny/clutch/mik...age_4.html


did i bingo?
hope it makes for fast cure. Cheers.

PS

next my guess is you will ask for cable.? sure, cant blame you,. AZ sold one cable made if plastic that is pure junk, seen it. DuraCrap
and that is cloned, and some are junk. (china plastic cloned cables) (rubber boot on the end is quality.)
there are IIRC, 3 cables. for the 2 bodies (2/4dr) and 2 engines

on the same page, find ( control +F) PC search
CABLE CITY.
bingo.

that list is old, 11yr. and there may be vastly more cables made, lets look now , oops , only more clones and less good parts. IMO

the beck wins for quality others can be SUPER junk, the plastic over the steel casing is quality, but one cable was all plastic on the actual casing all the way to the flex cable, and useless.

http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/suzuk...cable,1972



what is your USA vin number off top of dash or on left side of dash , car drivers door open.
we can see if car is USE FED or USA CALIF. car. so parts matching works.

in the USA dealer that is the first words from his mouth, for very good reasons.


the 95 years 96 year changes is the end if the cable.
the end is not double nutted to a mount
and see rubber mount cushion, look under car, at the mount, if no nuts on shaft and just rubber drop in bushing your car has the newer setup.
my 96 has that, rubber type.

thats it , the above is just repeat of my whole clutch page.
