Re: gt clutch
The clutch on my 1.9JTD started to feel heavy after about 48,000 miles. It was (and still is) in its 3rd year of warranty (dealer warranty). I wasn't expecting anything to be honest due to the mileage. I was very suprised to find out (after the assessor drove it) that the clutch would be replaced under warranty for me.
Very happy with the dealer (Caledonia in Preston - who I have been told have gone into administration last week!!).
I may have been lucky but it is possible and therefore worth a try.
