    Clutch gone

    Forum Key Rings
    Not enough swear words to say how I feel. Driving home tonight the clutch started slipping in all gears. Gear change still smooth and easy, no clutch smell, pedal feels same as always.

    Rang garage not covered. Rang Vauxhall will inspect and says what's needed for £79.99.

    Really struggled to get car moving near home, all up hill etc. Seemed OK in reverse strangely.

    Deep down I know it's the clutch, but any input would be appreciated. Clutch kits not that bad, it just the fitting, fly wheel and anything else it might need.

    Really pissed off.

    Will put advert up for pedel box, only a few months old and to be honest it's spent more time switched off than it has on. Trouble is I paid £220 for it, and this close to Christmas people don't have money to burn

    No will go with luk I think, that's what vauxhall use I believe. Will get flywheel done at same time unless it's in 100% condition.
