    Default DMF and clutch replaced but ...

    My Vectra 1.9 cdti has had the flywheel and clutch done by a local garage.
    the problem I have is the brakes are poor, coincidence or related

    Guess it could be as I believe hydraulic clutches use the same fluid as the brakes. perhaps the whole system needs a bleed. That's the extent of my knowledge on this lol. Sure someone will be along soon.......

    I've always had problems with first when engine is cold, usually have to select third then will go into first ok. Might work for now

    They might have damaged a vaccuum line for the brake servo?

    Or not bled properly as said above.


    Mine also doesn't like 1st though so that's normal I think.

    Yes. Tell them to bleed the sistem and to set up the gear linkage properly.
