          here's an update a few months on. Car continued to be a problem, with variable bite point and clutch feeling fierce some days and not others; bite point seemed to change day to day. Had service just before warranty ran out and steelers predictably "no fault found". So investigated myself - check the obvious first and solved it. Clutch pedal return spring is a symmetrical torsion spring, with an anchor point on both sides of the pedal stem which the spring end sits in. One end was not engaged in the anchor so the spring was skewed, sticking sometimes and giving varying levels of return force. Fairly easy to re-engage once you get into the right position. So - got it sorted, added a bit of vaseline and the cluch feels completely different. Suspect it had been like this for a long time, certainly for the year since i bought it. Don't know if it has damaged the pedal main pivot or clutch. i guess time will tell.

          Anyway - a completely different car now - clutch is entirely normal and bite point right where it should be. Really pleased with the fix; kicking myself for not looking earlier and assuming steelers had checked this.



          Well done mate. The people at VX dealers are muppets.
