New GT clutch woes

So the build date on my car is 02/2013,anyhow, Ive had the car a few weeks now and ive noticed that I have the clutch sucking down issue after high revs, decided today that id give the helper spring removal a shot, while being under the car im curious as to if I have the correct pedal assembly.

On my pedal assembly I only have the one helper spring with no torsional spring at the top, I though that all newer GTs have an updated pedal assembly with both helper spring and torsional spring at the top, am I correct?
Havent driven it yet to see if its made a difference yet.

took the car for a spin, problem still exists, no problems running through the gears though, im sure its a bit better without the spring attempting to keep the pedal down further, I guess ill be doing high temp fluid and a JHR clutch line..Can anyone confirm if im correct or wrong about the clutch pedal assembly?

Your car is still under warranty. Take it to the dealer.

You should have the top spring , but the issue with the clutch pedal sticking is associated with the stock clutch assembly. If you can replicate the issue for the service tech you may be able to get a boss clutch under warranty, which doesn't have this issue!

That's a bit odd the removal of the spring didnt resolve the problem. Everyone I know having the issue of the clutch pedal sticking removed the helper spring and has never had it stick again and love the stiffer feel myself included

The helper spring was a large problem on the early 2011 builds, on the 13 it's something with the clutch line, not exactly sure what or why but I know that replacing the clutch line with an aftermarket one usually fixes it

that is also a problem with the boss's too. Need an aftermarket clutch and balanced flywheel and a better throwout bearing......Problem solved and more holding power

I have a 13 as well and I believe my build date is the same as OP, I haven't took it to the dealership yet , it has done it 3 times in the last month , where I literally have to stick my foot behind it and pull the pedal back up , really pissing me off only 5500 miles on the damn thing

Jared have you removed the helper spring to see if that helps with your issue?

I even had a ford tech ask me at the track about if i had that issue and asked how I fixed it cause his was doing it and he even phoned ford and they claim no issues lol

he has let me know he hasnt had the issue since on his '13

Yea its like a 3" black spring there is a write up on it. Took me like 15min to do.

Your clutch will have small play at the top and will feel alot stiffer afterwards... I prefer how the clutch feels after then when i first got the car.

removing the spring is like a band aid. to many people have these problems. ford went cheap on the clutch and tranny.
