Re: Why are diesel clutchs harder to press than petrol

My clutch in my old diesel GT was very heavy then one afternoon the clutch pedal snapped to the floor. I had the RAC out and he replaced a simple clip in it and after that the clutch was much lighter??? I'm guessing the clip that snapped had somehow worked it's way into an odd position making the clutch feel heavier?

P.S Even after it was still heavier than any petrol ones I have owned

Re: Why are diesel clutchs harder to press than petrol

i must admit, my pedal pin snaped a while back and it been lighter ever since, but every now and again it feels a little heavier/stiffer that normal.

Must that pin moving about, i think they put a washer in once it was replaced to ease the cluth pin.

A good grease should lossen things up as well!
