Alfa 147 Clutch problem
Recently while driving back from work the clutch pedal snapped and was stuck to the floor, it turned out that the retaining clip had broken.
I got the car repaired from the same company that rescued me, the repair bill was relatively cheap (£4 for a new clip and £45 labour), however they issued an Advisory note stating that the "Clutch Operation is quite heavy".
When I queried this the technician said that I need to change the clutch within 6 months, at a cost of £800+, this caused the breaking of the clip and it will happen again!
Does this sound normal to you? yes the clutch is quite heavy but it's always been like that.
The car is 5 and half years old.
Also the exhaust box has got rusty-breaking bits, does it need to be replaced asap?
Thanks all for your time reading this and for your kind answers.
