    Mileage : 67000

    Default Shunt on clutch biting and generally feeling slack

    Hi guys,

    First post since the introduce myself thread, anyhow.

    Had the Vectra (1.9 Cdti 120) for a couple of days and really lovin it however

    There seems to be a real slackness in the gear change. When the clutch bites it feels like its taking up slack. Also when you go on/come off accelerator there is a shunt too. Even it you rev the engine you can feel the odd 'sway' from it.

    Now i've done a search and C.V boots come up alot but it just screams knackered mount to me.

    Any ideas guys
