    well is it possible for the pressure plate to come lose? i mean i tighted it pretty good but it seems like it has started to come lose, when im cruisin in 5th at like 3k or so, i can hear it vibrate, or when i let off the clutch sometimes it will make a loud noise, is there anyway to get to the bolts without takin the tranny out :(

    If the pressure plate was loose I would think your clutch would be slipping. The pressure plate holds the clutch against the flywheel.

    Hmmm.. if you can't get to them through the starter, try pulling our the rubber boot where the hydraulic contacts the fork tot he throw out bearing (if that makes sense). You might be able to get easier access through there since its a larger opening. If none of the above work, you're gonna have to break down and pull the tranny. :(

    I wouldn't mess around with that, if your clutch is slipping its going to wear down very fast. I'd make sure all the bolts were tight, even if that means pulling the tranny. Cheaper then spending at least another $100 for a new clutch.
