Still need help on clutch issue, already paid 13 pound the other day but site wants more ???
If question is closed do I get my money back ?
There is no slip what so ever you can put foot down in all gears and pulls great , its just that the biteing point is so low barely have to lift clutch and its bites , cheers
Ohhh okay .The clutch pedal can be adjusted from under the dash at the top part of the pedal assembly .This will lift or drop the pedal away or to the floor .please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.Your deposit does not pay me until the answer is rated in a positive way,Not rating or a bad rating does not constitute a refund, if you are not happy or you have sorted out your problem before the answer then please let me know.Kind regards Greg.
I will try this Greg but will it effect level of pedals as all in line at moment
If the pedal is in line with the rest then to much adjustment will lower or rise the pedal and make it uncomfortable.Was this always like this ,or do you have experience with this car having the bite point higher up .Here is what the pedal should be set up to .If you are set up like this then check the master cylinder and slave cylinder for play .Rgds Greg.
Always been like it since my wife bought it , have tried bleeding it but no difference the only thing I found was when bleeding the clutch the peddle stayed down had to pull it up manually ,

It from top the pressure , no play in pedal
Just tried clutch again and def no play or slack and pressure from top till bottom
Think there a prob somewhere as even with foot on clutch you put it in gear and you can feel a bit of drag
Slightly yes and when you put it in gear it slightly jerks forward , no fluid round slave etc bit rusty
HiThis is a master cylinder or slave cylinder issue if this is happening ,the clutch is not fully pushing out to disengage the clutch .First remove the slave cylinder and open up ,check the seals inside, if good clean and replace then do the same with the master cylinder ,if brake fluid was never change in the past then condensation builds up and causes internal damage to the master cylinder and slave cylinder ...After cleaning then refit and bleed the clutch with new DOT 3 fluid .If needed replace the master cylinder and slave cylinder .Rgds Greg
I will see if I can get new seals for it if not I can get a pattern part for £30 12 months warranty
Not forgot you Greg the slave cylinder be with me Friday so let you know asap
Just put new slave cylinder on , still same ? I give up lol
Clutch feels great , and bled system normally is bleed rude and pump pedal , pedal still stays down when bleeding it you have to pull up manually when bleeding
No sign of fluid , am going to re bleed tomorrow also try get plastic cover off that covers the pedals make life easier
The clutch master cylinder ? Thats the part I can see near fluid resiviour and it has a connecting rubber tube ?
Just looked all OK but may change master cylinder seems straight forward
Hi again tried that still same ?
Clutch lovely to operate just biteing point , still can't understand when bleeding you have to lift clutch manually
Well think I have to live with it , may try master and see how I go
