^Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.

If you kick the clutch, do you have a beat in the clutch pedal?

If so, this is an indication that a lamella on the clutch plate has broken off. If not, your Ford dealer is unfortunately right and there is no damage to the clutch plate.

please cancel renewal I will not be using this service in future

Unfortunately I cannot always answer immediately, but I will answer as soon as possible. So there is no need to worry.

The engine must be on, the vehicle can run quietly in neutral.

The request for the telephone service is unfortunately sent by the system, we experts have no control over it.

If the clutch pedal hits noticeably, then the pressure plate is defective.
