Since having the clutch replaced it has an intermitent problem - the
clutch is not disengaging when the pedal is pressed so it won't go into
gear unless the stick is thumped. I sure its the clutch rather than the
gear box as there is some power transmition when the pedal isn't pressed.
It has a hydrualic not a cable link. Problem now continuous - wondered if
debris in clutch housing might prevent plate traveling?
ok for the drive home after fitting clutch - then had its first episode
later that day - problem disappeared by the time I got it back to the
mechanic - week later it happened again but disappeared after a couple of
miles - after another couple of weeks its reappeared and stayed for the
last few days
I want to be clued up when I go back to the mechanic with it.
On a hyd clutch I would check the fluid first, if low look for leaks. If no
leaks found try bleeding it. If leak found, fix it and then bleed it. If its
real low at least fill it (with brake fluid) and pump it real good and it
might come back to life.
