AX 15 from 92 to a 95 sqeaks ????

I replaced my 95 Wrangler's ax 15 with an ax 15 from a 92 Renegade. Swapped the bell housing because the 95 has external slave. Now I have a high pitched whine when the clutch pedal is all the way out. If im driving down the road I can hear the whine and the pitch will vary with my speed. If I push the clutch in just an anch, the squealing gets significantly louder. The same effect happens in neutral. If I push the clutch pedal all the way in, the squealing disappears. ALso, the transmission isn't always smooth shifting and is starting to catch a little during shifting. Seems to be worse downshifting, especially from 3rd to second. Should I have kept the old bell housing and used the internal slave? Any ideas or input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds like the throw out bearing is going bad, as far as I catching while shifting. The trans synchro gears may be going out or your clutch itself is weak. Have you checked the fluid in your CMC and bleed it? Are you sure you don't need the longer CSC piston?

The fluid is full and I cant see any seepage or leaks. Should I bleed it anyway? Not exactly sure what CSC piston is, sorry. Does that mean I should have used the internal slave setup? Thanks for your patience and help. Being a newb sucks but learning is fun...

You can bleed it that's an easy check. Clutch Slave Cylinder, the external slave. Do some research but I remember reading on one of the threads about doing the AX15 swap. They said sometimes you have to use the AX15 external slave that the AX5 slave piston that pushes on the clutch fork inside the housing is to short to engage the clutch fully.

Crap dummy me read your OP wrong. Disregard what I said about the length or swapping the external slave. Yes you can try and bleed it, this may help with shifting. But as far as the squeak it probably is the throw out bearing. This bearing is on the clutch fork I since the bell housing that makes contact with the pressure plate (constant contact slightly) and when you push he clutch in (contacts the pressure plate to disengage the clutch. How old is your clutch cause these bearing are notorious if soaked in muddy water to often.

Its your throwout bearing. Did you spray it or clean it when you had it out?

Not sure if it was done or not....friend was doing most of the work and I was trying to learn. I believe so because he's pretty thorpugh. Not sure how old the clutch. Jeep has 170K on it and had 145 when I got it. Previous owner did not replace clutch or know if it ever had. Guess I'll learn some more this weekend.....I researched the slave bleed and i'll try that first. Thank you very much.
