problem after work

I put a coolant heater in my prowler, easy peezy, took it out today and drove it to the elevator 1\4 mile away and when I stopped, it acted like the clutch wouldnt disengage, it was acting like it was stuck in gear,I suppose because the clutch was engaging and there was torque on the gear lever.why would this happen now, it had a lot of snow underneath when I brought it in yesterday, maybe something thawed and froze again, I dont know, what does this sound like,I know its happened to some of you vets, help me out,it was making a funny rattle too when it was idling in gear when I first stopped it, it wouldnt start in gear, just wanted to go with the starter,in neutral it would start but when I put it in gear, it would lurch forward and die. thanks

Sounds like the 1-way bearing locked up. I'm sure RD will chime in soon
Fairmont79 and Firecat like this.

I agree on the one way bearing. Many have eliminated them. AC issued a bulletin to remove the bearing if the machine is to be used for plowing, pulling heavy loads, or carrying heavy loads. There is a slight decrease in engine braking. Just another 85 dollar part you don't need! LOL

I watched youtube videos on how to take a AC clutch apart. Don't worry if the video is on a ATV the cover and what inside are the same. Also don't worry if it seems backwards. The motors on many models of prowlers are oriented different from the ATV's. i.e. backwards.

Check the frequently asked questions section. Look at the clutch removal post.
