    Default 1.8 VVT clutch replacement question

    Does anyone know,who works for Vauxhall, if when the clutch is replaced on the 1.8VVT engine ,you have to touch anything to do with the brakes.Ie remove pipes and refit ,then bleed the system?

    The reason i ask is that since i got my car back from having the clutch replaced the brake pedal travels further than it did before.

    Or is it just a case of the brakes bedding in?

    Also since having the clutch done i have noticed a very slight judder returning under some conditions.Nothing like it was but still not totally smooth.Anyone else had this?

    They were suppose to have changed everything as a kit. inc flywheel.

    I am fed up with the car and me and the misses have said we'll probably change it in March for something Japanese.

    My last 3 cars have been Vauxhall but the lack of commitment (handbrake problem),indifference to the customer and faults and rattles(build quality) have all put me off buying another.

    Buy a Renault. You'll then know what crap dealers and poorly constructed cars are like. You'll be back to Vauxhall like a shot.
