Help 156 JTD - Nightmare clutch problems

Hi guys,

Can you help save my '99 2.4 156 JTD from the scrapheap?

I picked up my car 4 weeks ago - and the gears failed to engage the next day....

So I have changed the clutch, the master cylinder and the slave cylinder but it stubbornly refuses to go in gear with the clutch. The gears work fine with no clutch - ie you can crash change the gears.

I have spent three weeks solid on this car with a mechanic mate of mine, and bought a new Valeo clutch etc and we are stumped.

The actuator arm works fine and it has been bled.

Any ideas?

Thanks guys,

You say you've changed the clutch (assuming this includes disc, pressure plate and bearing) there is not much left as you have already changed master/slave cylinders. What you did not mention is the dual mass flywheel. I think someone here mentioned that these can develope a problem where the two parts (back and front) of the flywheel start to come apart resulting in that the clutch won't release fully/or at all anymore...
