Whince whenever I push the clutch pedal down
My GT 1.9 JTDm has a problem with the clutch pedal action. It has been similar from new but now it has done 55K miles it seems to be getting worse, or maybe I am getting sensitised to it. When cold in the morning the clutch pedal operates silky smooth. After a few hours motoring it feels horrible as I depress the clutch to change gear. There is a creaky notchy feeling to it. I have coated everything I can see or feel with: silicone spray, WD 40, spray-on white grease, ordinary grease, engine oil, all to no avail. If it pump the clutch pedal repeatedly and fast it goes away for a few strokes but soon comes back. If it is raining the problem disappears. The clutch itself takes up about halfway up and there is no sign of judder or slip. Anyone got an answer?
