    Default Clutch smell

    What causes the smell, don't think its slipping. Started noticing it yesterday. Any ideas on cost for a 2.2 direct?

    Would only smell if its slipping as its the hot smell of the friction material that causes the smell.

    DMF could be near to failure, I started to get a burning smell a few hours before it failed

    The clutch hydraulic system could be faulty, lifting the clutch and not fully engaging it

    If it is just the clutch, probably looking at £600
    Have the DMF inspected at the same time
    If it is both then pretty much £800
