BMW Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I have a BMW 318i ES 2006. Just had a new clutch fitted, new fly wheel plus slave. Not at BMW main dealership. They have replaced clutch in past without problem. Clutch pedal is very stiff and heavy. Driving in traffic, when your in and out of first gear is really bad...left leg feels dead after a driving for even half an hour. Please help!!
I NEED ANSWER SOON! I aim to speak to garage Saturday 16th May, they close at 12.30 am. They have taken £900 of my money already.CAN NOT AFFORD TO GO TO BMW, they will want to replace clutch...they will charge £1300 plus!!
what kind of help is it that you are seeking?
What might be the problem with the clutch to make it so heavy that it is becoming impossible to drive the car safely? Is there something the garage has not done, or should do to remedy the problem?
I have given up waiting for a reply!
I think I may know the answer to the problem. I believe the clutch was not fitted correctly, and that the locking plate was attached at the wrong stage in the assembly procedure which locked the clutch from self-adjusting.
Sorry, but I would like a refund please!
