    Default Hi

    Hi
    Have been a lurker for the past few months since buying a 56 plate Signum 1.9 CDTI. I am looking for a little bit of advice.
    Recently go stuck in heavy traffic which caused the clutch to start to dissapear in to the floor. Have bled the clutch a couple of time which solves it for a day or so. I don't ever lose the clutch completely but want to solve it. Have also put a second hand Master cylinder on this does not seem to have altered anything. Do not seem to be losing clutch fluid.
    What are the odds of two knackered master cylinders?
    I am now considering doing the clutch, slave cylinder and DMF myself. Has anyone done this got any advice? Do I need to renew the bolts on the DMF? How do you tell if the DMF is knackered when you split the gearbox?

    Cheers
    Chris

    Not something that I've experienced and I know very little about the hydraulics in this system but maybe you have air within the fluid? Perhaps you've not bled the system correctly? Either that or you've not found where the clutch fluid is leaking! I've also not had problems with the DMF, so not sure what the symptoms are, other than rumbling when depressing the clutch.
    Sorry, I can't help more. Help needed Members!

    As far as i can tell i have lost no pressure or fluid. When I bled the system for the first time the clutch fluid was black, after a couple of bleed the flid is now a normal colour. I have bled the system using an easybleed like shown in the how 2 article. I'm sure i read that vauxhall had revised the bleed procedure but can not find it again now. Anyone know the best bleed procedure if different from the How2 on this forum?

    Hi
    Bit more information. With the engine running, car in gear and clutc to the floor held the clutch in for 11 mins and no change. This makes me think that the hydraulic circuit must be ok. If i had any leaks it would have engaged the clutch and crept forward. It makes me think i just have air i the system any thoughts?
