    Default Clutch pedal doesnt return sometimes

    Hi guys im new, just recently bought my vectra. It has a weird problem well not so much a problem yet, basicly il be driving along and once in a blue moon the clutch doesnt return to the top, it still changes gear fine but its like the clutch doesnt push back on your foot, then maybe after 2 or 3 gear changes it will be fine again? Is there a return spring on the pedal or could it be a cylinder? im thinking more likely something to do with the pedal as it still changes gear fine and the bite point is the same it just doesnt follow up after the clutch bites.

    Thanks lads for any help

    It will be the same as bleeding any hydraulic system. You will need someone to pump the clutch pedal whilst the other person opens and closes the bleed valve on the slave cylinder.

    However, if the clutch hydraulics has air in it, I would have thought that you would have problems actually changing gear as the air takes away the pressure in the hydraulic system, as if the clutch was not fully engaging?

    Theirs a how 2 on here with pics to make it easier.

    But basically find the bleed screw. Open that connect a pipe into a suitable container and then pump clutch pedal.
    Ensuring fluid stays above min mark.

    Once got nice fresh bubble free fluid going into container.
    Lock off the nipple and check clutch pedal feels firm.

    Yeah i agree mate but i will try it 1st, i still have the bite point in the same place and no actual clutch engaging problems it just doesnt come up the rest of the way and i like i say this may happen 1 in 100 clutch presses and never lasts for more than 3 or 4 presses after sometimes just once
