Question Drive Bearing warranty campaign?

Regarding the first post, is there a campaign that allows you to have the bearing replaced on a GS with CC regardless of issues? If not what should I be looking/listening for that would indicate I have a problem?
Thanks

To be honest, I wish I had the TO bearing replaced, just in case.

Hey guys,

Perhaps this is a bit extreme but, if I (still) lived in a town like Columbus Ohio and the only local place to service my GS was the dealer..I would have no issues with paying $1000 to truck/ haul the car out of state to a great independent.

OK so I just picked up my 2003 Coupe GT from fusion Motor Sports. The car was spot less inside and out,plus under the hood has well.
Now the total bill with all of the clutch parts plus the clutch slave and a fluid service was $3,900.
The Auto Gallery gave me a discounted estimate for just the clutch job with out the service or the clutch slave of $3,800 - $4,200.
I can not believe how much better it drives with the new clutch. The peddle is so much lighter and the clutch engages in the first 1/3 of the travel instead of the top 1/3. I now know what a new Coupe GT must have been like. I bought my car used with 14,000 miles on it three years ago.I also had them adjust the shift linkage as well; it is way better (less effort required and more precise).
So I think the price that I paid was terrific!! I highly recamend Damian for those of us in the Valley,his # is 818-773-9636.
Ron

Damian is indeed very talented and very capable.

You just have to get around the British accent?

Did you know he is the voice of the Geico Gekko?

From what I understand, it is a well-known issue. There was a service document that out. Listen for a "hooting" or "screeching" noise on takeoff. I don't know if the dealer ever confirmed the noise, but they did do the work.

Thread resurrection. My car made that sound the other day.... anyone know exactly what needs to be replaced and if it's doable by myself?. I'd like to DIY it if possible and I don't need a SD2 computer etc.

p.s. I got my car codes and I had 3 arrows from wat hey said all pointed towards actuator/bearing.

The issue is the input shaft support bearing inside the bellhousing. The outer race of the bearing spins inside the case. The factory fix was to remove the bearing, rough the inside of the case up with a hammer and punch, apply bearing retainer loctite and reinstall the bearing.

You could DIY the job to an extent. It will take a press to R&R the shaft & bearing. You will also have to bleed the clutch circuit after opening everything up. It's suppose to be done via the Diag computer, however with help from a friend you can crack the bleeder open as someone selects 1st and Neutral repeatedly and get the same result.

Josh- are you referring to the cambiocorsa hydraulic circuit? I wasn't aware that there was a bleed routine a DIYer could follow. This would put another item that many view as a "dealer only" procedure --changing the CHF fluid-- into the hands of a competent "shade tree" mechanic.

There have been a few threads on the DIY to bleed the system. Try a search and you should find some good info.

I have access to a lift and every tool imaginable other than SD2 computer lol. In other words this sounds like an easy DIY. Although I might as well just get the whole clutch replaced considering the last time I had it checked out it was at 92% and it has this issue. I think it might be safe to assume I just need new stuff.

It will take a couple days to get it done since it's not a routine for you, but definitely do able. At 92% accompanied by the squeal, I have to agree that the car would probably appreciate a good going over.

To replace the bearing you are doing everything to do a clutch job, except removing the pressure plate and flywheel.

You might try Google, specifying "site:maseratilife.com" at the end of the search string, which will limit searches to this site. I know I've had in-site content show up in general Google searches for Maserati info before.
