    Default Signum Clutch - Can you Adjust?

    Hi all,

    Me again, I have a question about the clutch. It doesn't engage until the pedal is fairly high, is this normal?

    If not, can it be adjusted?

    Cheers

    Default It slipped!

    Hi all,

    Went from 3rd to 4th whilst going up hill, admitidly i slipped it into gear whilst accelerating but once the foot was off the clutch it carried on slipping!

    As there is no adjustment i'm guessing it's a new clutch needed, what sort of cost am i looking at?

    Cheers!

    I would not go anywhere near a dealer for that job.

    In fact I wouldn't go anywhere. How handy are you? Is a clutch change possible for you?

    Is there any local garage that has a good reputation / or you're used before and would recommend? Save some cash by phoning around. It may be better if you supply the parts too.

    While the gearbox is off, it may be a good idea to change the clutch release cylinder at the same time. It may save you a few bob in the long term. You don't want to scrimp and then in a few weeks time have to pay for a new release to be fitted . . . . . .

    What mileage are you at with it?

    Not always mate, I used to get this from time to time especially when loaded up or giving it some, I think if anything the clutch over heats too easily tbh.

    I could possibly do it, managed to change the crankshaft pulley but I'm guessing this is far more! Where would i find instructions?

    It's done 80k and yes there are a couple of local garages i could try.

    VauxVeteran: That's a good point........... I was 3hrs into a drive to cornwall and the car was loaded!

    My concern is that i'm driving from Calais to West Brittany this summer!

    Even if it was hot, overloaded etc, a slipping clutch means one thing - - it will continue to slip and will eventually do it at all driving conditions. It's only a matter of time and where it finally gives up the ghost. If you'd been driving for a while, then the clutch wouldn't be hot, as it wouldn't be doing much if you weren't changing gears.

    Why wait to break down on the motorway when you're on your way to the most important meeting??

    Get some quotes for the job, BUT do ask what replacement parts are being used, and if necessary supply your own.


    If you want to do it yourself, then instructions can be found by asking the nice people on here if they can send you something. I'm sure someone will have access to the necessary info . . . (hint)
