Has the clutch been slipping or has it now lost all drive?

First noticed on speed control af you put more speed on it would speed up for a second or two then over rev and the speed control would come off . To get home I had to be very gental with the throttle and geared as it would over rev. Philip

It does sound like it is slipping.

 

This is going to be difficult to prove it wasn't your fault or style of driving that caused it.

What you can do is ask to inspect the parts when they are reomoved. If the drive plate is worn then that is probably your fault they will say. If the drive plate is servicable then the pressure plate is likely to be the cause. This would then be a mechanical failure and so should be covered under warranty. The other thing to look for is contamination of the drive plate. If oil has got onto it then again this is mechanical failure and should be covered.

I thought you said car was 18 months and with 30,000 miles on it?

 

Make sure also you are not getting mixed up with clutch/flywheel problems on diesel cars due to the dual mass flywheel.
