    Default clutch burning

    had to tow a van today only a berlingo to get the air out of fuel lines, but am i right is saying my clutch is on its way out?


    when i was towing the revs were going high but the car wasnt moving how it should i could smell burning (clutch burning) the bites at the top aswell,

    do i just replace the clutch or do i have to replace DMF aswell?

    Sounds like it matey, towing is really hard on the clutch so maby its showing that its on its way out. I would personally do the clutch, bearing and DMF if it was my car...

    Lol..... the difference between the repset and the pro one is described on the web page linked above.....

    The RepSetPro also contains a concentric slave cylinder, which now combines the slave cylinder and release bearing in one component in one in every two cars. The concentric slave cylinder should be changed eachtime the clutch is replaced to avoid a delayed fault resulting inextra time in the workshop.
