    Default Not Vectra but Corsa clutch problem.

    Guess this is the wrong section but here goes......

    My daughter's V plate 101k mile Corsa manual seems to have a clutch issue.

    The bite point is about 1" off the floor which, as she's learning to drive, is making life rather difficult for her.

    I thought that when a clutch was on its way out, the bite was very near the top of the pedal stroke, not the bottom.

    So is her clutch cream crackered or something else more sinister?

    Do you mean that it is just 1" from the floor, ie you have to press the clutch all the way
    If so, that is quite normal on a clutch near the end of its life, however may simply need adjusting
    Put the car in reverse and see if the back of the car rises, if it does the clutch is indeed near the end of its life

    New cars usually need very little clutch pedal movement

    Sounds like just the clutch cable needs adjusting. Is the clutch pedal lower than the brake pedal?
