147 JTD 8V Heavy Clutch
First off apologies from a newbie. I expect that this is already a well discussed topic.
Our 08 plate 147 has 42,000 miles on the clock. We have had the car since 2010 and the clutch has always been heavy with a slight squeak. The garage has told me a new clutch is needed and the bill will be £600ish. With 42,000 miles only I'm not buying this.
I've seen posts from people who have cleaned and lubricated the actuating mechanism and cured the problem. I'm going to give this a go before shelling out big wonga. Can anyone point me to a step by step guide with some pics please? I'm handy enough but would prefer a guide to follow.
Are there any up-rated parts/bushes from Alfa that should be fitted whilst the mechanism is apart? Thanks peeps
