    Question Is there a way to test the clutch?

    Hi guys

    my clutch is not slipping or anything, but sometimes when i've been on a longest journey, 50+ miles and finally come to an halt, i get a kind of metal burning/friction smell in the car - dunno why i think it maybe the clutch? - it only went through its MOT last month and the brakes were fine - what else could it be

    Cheers

    Brakes can be working well but a sticky caliper could be causing one to bind and heat up the pads and disc causing the same type of smell. Do any of your wheels have a heavy coating of brake dust?
