2012 HDX problems in the clutch HELP

My HDX is giving me problems in the clutch. I have warrant still so I'm not doing the work . my seal leak's every time they put a new one and we have tried two different clutch kits one was a cat track kit and the one in it now is a epi muddin kit and the belt still slips and squeals I do run tracks in the winter and 26 mud light in the summer its bin in the shop for month and a half this time and over two months in total it has 500km on it SO do I ask for my money back or a new one and I want them to make my payments that I have not bin able to use it.

I'd push for replacement. If you have a documented history on this you may have a case. I'd ask for a company representative to be involved. Belt slipping is one sign of oil in the belt case. The seal job is not that difficult to do, I would think a dealer should be able to get it right. The clutch kits should help, did they re-use the belt?

How long doe's it take for the belt to start slipping? Doe's it do it without the trac's? Changing the clutch to a mudder clutch adds low end, both clutch kits do that. It almost sounds like there is a lot of drag on the drivetrain that the belt has to overcome.

X'2! Either the shop doe's not know what the are doing, or something in the drivetrain is out of whack! If nothing is dragging, or binding up, then it has to be in the clutch and related parts.

From everyone I've heard, Airdam could resolve your clutch issues.
