Thought i would let you know about my clutch. I have had my GT a couple of months now and am really pleased with it. My clutch did feel a little heavy so i took it back to the dealer that i purchased it from,just to see what there opinion was.The service manager came and had a look and agreed it was a bit heavy. He then got one of the mechanics to have a look and he did a slip test on it. No slipping at all. He asked me to leave it with him and he would get back to me.
A week or so latter,i got a call from the service manager and he said that we needed to get it booked in for a new clutch. He had contacted the warranty company and they gave him the go ahead to fit a new clutch. What a result.
I took the car in wadnesday and a new clutch plate,pressure plate and release bearing was fitted. On picking it up,it felt so light i couldnt believe the difference. On the drive home,i detected a bit of a squeal coming from the clutch,but when i pushed the clutch down,it went.
I have been back to the dealer today,and they said it sounded like the release bearing. Upon
removing the gearbox again,they found that the bearing was faulty,and it had scored the bearing guide. A new one has been ordered from Alfa but wont be available till tuesday. I have been lent a courtesy car until then.
All i really wanted to say was,what great service from them and the warranty company and at least i will have piece of mind when i get the car back with a new clutch fitted.
