Ive got the copy of the report through now.
"All indicators are that the combined clutch release bearing/slave cylinder has been leaking onto the friction plate, causing the same to glaze and at the same time start to break up. This is not a sudden mechanical failure, but represents long-term wear, which was present at the time of purchase."
The rest of the report basically says that the clutch plate, fingers, fly wheel are all slightly worn but not excessively and that it is "commensurate with the vehicles age and recorded millage" - 54000miles
I've always said that I would pay for the clutch to be replaced as this isn't the fault with the car and that it's a good idea to get it changed whilst in there.
How he can state that it was there when I bought the car I'm not too sure. The problem is that I bought the car in September, and extended the warranty that came with it, in December. So it is fairly close to taking out the policy etc etc.
The master cylinder was replaced in Febuary - apparently incorrectly. This I feel is the garage's mistake and not something that I should be penalised for, as if they'd got the slave changed at the time, then I maybe might not be in this position.
