156 V6 Clutch Replacement
I've got a couple of questions about the clutch on the 156 V6. I have a feeling it is on the way out, but I'm not sure.
- The car has done 70K, 40K of those in London, so the clutch has seen a lot of action
- The bite point is very close to the top of the pedal stroke, it only needs a small press to disengage. This seems to have changed over the last 2000 miles or so
- It does not slip when booting it - but if I touched the pedal, it would slip.
- The release bearing is fine
- For some reason it is hard to drive smoothly, not sure why, it just is. It could be that I'm getting used to the clutch in the 159.
So, first up, is my clutch on the way out?
Second up, is this a DIY proposition? I can't find any "how to" documents for the V6, just the TS. In terms of "DIY qualifications", I can rebuild engines but not gearboxes (they are the devils work), and am pretty well equipped. Or is a V6 clutch one of those things that you are better off giving to a specialist because you'll **** it up?
