147 slipping clutch but working now?
Hi All, I recently bought a 147 Selespeed 2006 which I love so much. Jump in the car this morning and when I put it in reverse the gear the engine reved but it did not move. I pushed the car off the drive and tried putting it in to first and again it didn't move. I revved it a bit more and then slowly the clutch seemed to grip and off I went. Once the car was warm it seemed fine and got me to Abu Dhabi city though still a bit juddery in first gear. Could it be oil contamination on the clutch or the clutch beginning to fail? Any advice would be greatly received as I still haven't told my Wife it is faulty! Many thanks
