    Default Running out of ideas with a clutch problem. Anyone help?

    Hi guys

    Ive recentley changed the gearbox and clutch on our 54plate 1.8life. Fitted a new three piece kit from LuK and bled it every way possible. However, the clutch peddle is like treacle both when pushing down and returning. Ive changed the master clylinder but to no avail. Perhaps the best way to describe it is to call it like a door damper - you know on fire exit doors and such like you have the damper unit to save the door slamming fast. it just has too much resistance pushing down and comes up just as slowley. The old gearbox had a hole in the bottom hence the change but clutch operation was perfect. The clutch functions fine in so much as the biting point is right and it engages and disengages perfectley as long as you dont mind the worlds longest gear changes!!

    Anyone any suggestions? Scratching my head with this one! Cheers

    Well its plain its a clutch problem i would have thought, but lets look at it logically! its slow to depress & return , SORRY! its drop the lot out time!, Its gotta be thrust bearing or actual clutch related surely? but maybe the replacement box, Were/are the parts fitted the correct ones?, have the parts been fitted with NO problems ie awkward or tight to fit or loose fitting, there's a resistance as you have stated so somethings 'not happy', It can be a pig but part it & check the box is 100% the same! there 'is' something different somewhere!, A part is wrong or miss-fitted or the box is very slightly different, as above remove inspect & ''measure exactly'' against the removed parts. Including the box shaft.

    Thanks for your replies chaps. I think box out again is the only option too, wizard. The box came out of another vec c 2006 1.8. There are lots of f17's around so made sure i pulled it out of another vec at the breakers. I have read people having issues with pattern slave cylinders, but LuK are normally spot on, it looked the same as the old one,fitted easily (as did everything else),i copper greased the splines and made sure it travelled smoothley. Cover and friction plate measured up exactley too. The fact that it comes up slowley like through treacle is what realy bothers me. Never had that on a clutch b4, if anything was causing resistance on the way down you would think that it would spring the pedal straight back up again. The fact that it is the same on return as it is when being depressed stands out as being rather odd to me, plus the fact that the actual clutch operation is perfectley fine...as long as you dont wanna change gear quick!

    What will realy be a mystery is if i take the box out and find nothing obviousley wrong! Almost dont want to do it, just in case.......
