Clutch damper poblem?
I have a 1.9JTDM GT and have had constant clutch problems. Its has been into the dealers and had loads of warranty work at 15,000 miles. Clutch, flywheel, bushes, fork, release bearing and sleeve, master cylinder and slave cyliner twice. I am still finding that the clutch pedal is gritty when pressed down fully to the floor. This does not happen all of the time though. One press of the pedal can be fine and the next doesn't fell right, then its back to normal.
I have read a few posts about the clutch damper that is situated between the master cylinder and the slave cylinder... could it be that? Does the 1.9 JTDM GT have one?
I do know that the hydraulic system would have been under a lot of pressure before I had the clutch replaced as one of the bushes had seized on the fork, one of the reasons the clutch was so heavy.
