Alfa 147 JTD 16V Clutch Problem
Hi all, My clutch started to slip a little a while ago. Last week I noticed overnight that the clutch pedal had to be depressed right to the floor to change gear and then was a little notchy. This morning, I started the car (out of gear) to defrost it, when I came to go to work, I could not get any gear even with the pedal flat to the floor. I stopped the engine and tried to restart it in gear with the clutch pressed down and it jumped as though no clutch pressed.
Is this a new clutch job or does it need adjusting? Alfa main dealer told me I needed a new clutch 12 months ago, but it was working fine up to last week.
Also, a local garage has told me £500 to replace as it is such a difficult job to get to the clutch and would take at least 7 hours labour? Does this sound right??
Any help gratefully recieved.
