Re: Slipping clutch - GT Q2
Thanks filipharvey. The key thing here is driving style....sure if you use heavy acceleration all the time, don't change down etc. then you'll be putting a lot of torque through the clutch and gear box. I didn't feel I was doing this but there again maybe I was!
To compare, I had a chipped Golf TDi and did nearly 270k miles in it without a single clutch change. Our other car is a Skoda Octavia 1.9TDi and that has done 180k without a clutch change. 30k on the GT clutch, driven almost entirely under traffic free conditions with mild acceleration etc, P-box or not, seems to be verging on the low side.
The next question then is can anyone recommend a good independent and is there the possibility of fitting an uprated clutch.
By the way we are virtually neighbours!
