clutch problem i hope?

thanks for reading and your time!

i have a 147 ts btw

the other day my gear changes seemed harsh and blocky(hard to change gear) like the clutch wasnt working so i moved the seat forward and forgot about it as it wasnt a problem.

until today after pulling of the motorway on the sliproad i changed gear and it was hard to get back into gear,driving back home the clutch goes completely soft and i get stuck in neutral unable to change back into any gears?

i had to stop twice on the motorway as i changed down a gear

its strange because now im home its working but slighty notchy?

i read the thread about the 147 clutch,is it just the clutch or a bigger problem(i hope not as im skint).

i need to use the car tomorrow on a 70 mile round trip to work and can get to my garage on monday but do i take the risk and get stuck in neutral,i was thinking of getting the breakdown guys to look at it while im at work.

thx for your help!

Sounds to me like your clutch needs replacing... Your symptoms sound like those I had on my 166.
