Clutch pedal feel and cold weather?
The clutch on the GT has been reasonably stiff over the months I've had it.
I have greased all the components and eventually got it feeling pretty good to me.
The travel and pressure of the pedal was the same for the entire stroke, reassuringly stiff, without being un-useable.
But, first proper frost this morning, jumped in the car after de-icing, set off down the road.
The pedal now has 2 stages: really easy until half way, then back to the stiff feeling that I have had for a while.
Would the spring/grease react to the cold, making it easier to press?
I have just been to the car to move it in the works carpark, and it is still the same, soft 50% then normal stiff 50%.
Is this the sign of impending doom and expense or is there something I can do/look for? It just feels really odd compared to usual.
Dark at the moment, so haven't had the time to look at the internal mechanism.
Moved over to the dark side
And loving it
