    Default Think the Clutch is Dropping hints.................

    .......That it's on the way out

    After dropping my Dad and sister at the airport on the way back home was in 5th, put the foot down and it rev'd slightly with no power then the revs dropped slightly and the power came back.

    Happened again in 4th, put the foot down and it rev'd a lot more, but they never shot up a ridiculous amount, but again they died slightly then I had power. Just checked and the clutch will cost about £200 at trade price, good job I don't have to pay for fitting. I just need to treat it nice and make it last till January

    All this to go with a coolant leak I've got as well, but I just keep topping it up ATM.

    TBH it's the very early stages if it is going, only happened twice so far. Not willing to put it under any extra stresses just in case though
