Just read 52,000 this is normal, life for clutch ,, the original new car clutch will go 60,000 to 120,000 ..
52,000 miles is good for a replacement clutch
If you want top milage you must resurface flywheel ,do not lighten this way!! tho you could have it scalloped,, tell machine shop to take the bare minimum to resurface use G M parts or center force for long milage ,,Replace the trio
If you are a spirited driver as I am in some circumstances your clutch life will seldom exceed 75.000 mile and 50,000 is more like it ..
The shafts the forks the the flywheel mount the flexplate the crank shafts,axles,bearings are not so tight as they were at the new car smell time
anything do to with the fiero troublesome manual transmission system is a chance to increase your mechanical skills
My present Fiero is on its 3rd clutch at 125,000 miles , I regret because of health reasons I will have to go to Auto transmission,but the Fiero auto T125 is one of the fieros most reliable features, the manual transmission system one of the worst features
To check a fly wheel you need to place a straight edge on the flywheel you should not be able to slip a .003 feeler gauge under the straight edge
