The first time my bella has gone wrong on me!!
So yesterday i felt the last inch of travel on my clutch pedal get a bit 'clicky/notchy' but it then went away. Today I drove to leeds from derby, everything was fine no slipping clutch or anything. Turned the car off, got out of the car to drop some stuff off in the house, got back in and the bite point of the clutch had gone from near the top (where it had been for the last 30000 miles/2 years) to hardly an inch from the floor and wouldn't really engage into any gears, i didn't dare try when i tried reverse the crunch was awful so i left it alone.
I looked under the car and there is some leaking fluid coming from where the OSF ARB bush sits. Not too sure what this is as the brake, steering, oil and coolant levels are all fine. (the AA man said this is power steering fluid)
So called the AA man to see what he had to say, he had a poke around the top of the engine bay, got in the car pushed the clutch pedal down and said immediately that because it was so stiff that his diagnosis was that the clutch has gone. That for me was a very quick diagnosis as the stiffness of the clutch seems constant, maybe a little lighter if anything, than it was before.
I have had a search around the forum and similar issues come up with the culprit being either the master or slave cylinders or the friction plate on the clutch itself.
Can anyone please shed any light as to what this could be?
Oh and the car is an 8V JTD.
