Capri Tranny

I have an '84 Mercury Capri..5.0/T5..When I push on the clutch pedal, it is very hard to push down to the floor, it doesn't snap back up like it should.. and there are squeek type noises coming from the tranny. Its not clicking or grinding. It sounds like a squeeky door opening or closing.

I'm assuming that I'll need to change most of the clutch assembly stuff, but before I go through the hassle, could it be anything easy or stupid? (LOL). Thank you anyone!

Check the linkage for broken parts/binding issues.

Your Capri uses a cable operated clutch. The cable could be frayed & binding or the clutch quadrant could be worn. Both problems are pretty common on this vintage Ford.

If the cable & quadrant check out, remove the trans & inspect the input shaft bearing retainer for wear. The throw out bearing rides on the input shaft bearing retainer & can wear it over time. A worn bearing retainer can cause the throw out bearing to bind, resulting in a stiff & or jerky clutch pedal.
