    Default Clutch question

    Over the last month or so (2500 miles) I've noticed that there is a vibration through the clutch pedal when engaging and disengaging the clutch at 3000rpm or more. I've had the car a while now and it wasn't doing it when I bought it.

    I don't do a lot of town driving and I don't drive the car particularly hard. Since the vibration appeared, it hasn't got any worse but I'm curious to know if it's a problem anyone else has had.

    Clutch has done 31k miles if that's any help!

    I'm useless when it comes to anything other than engines

    Thanks mate but I'm well out of warranty, car has done 143k miles!

    If this is the problem, does anyone have any idea how much it will be to fix?

    OUCH! Didn't think it was going to be that much!

    The clutch operation hasnt changed so hopefully will be ok for a while - might try and see if Vx will contribute as it had a Gearbox, Slave Cylinder and Clutch not long ago!

    Do I have one of those? I thought that was just the 2.2, 3.2 and CDTI's that had one....
