    not the 1st 1.8 to have a juddery clutch.. quite common...

    he'll have to take it back in to get checked..no dual mass flywheel on these cars..just a typical 3 part clutch..hopefully it's just a defective pressure plate..

    Mines a pre-facelift 1.8 and suffers the same prob Seems to be a 1.8 thing as other members on here have had the same prob with the clutch.Did take it back to the steelers after a couple of months,they said there was nothing wrong with it,well they would wouldnt they Had the vec now for nearly two years and it still does it.My advise would be to take it back and have a rant,dont let them fob you off,get it done while still under warranty.

    I've noticed that mine has started that just recently (10k) so I think I might pop back to Burnham Garage...
