Background: Non-release can be an issue in 4Terrain applications if care is not taken when handling the Clutch Plate. In extreme cases the plate can be bent when dropped or when heavy items are stacked onto the clutch plate. The clutch plates are made to tight run-out tolerances. If care is not taken when handling the clutch plate, the rigid steel ring backing the button organic friction material can be deformed enough to make it difficult to disengage the clutch.
Solution: Handle the clutch plate with care and do not stack anything on top of the clutch plate.
