Sorry if this has been covered before I looked and couldn't find it.
Have an 03 plate 1.9 JTD, only had a couple of months and love it, it's my first alfa and does have some faults with front brakes and suspension which I'm going to be working on.
Had occasional slipping of clutch and grinding when trying to engage gears and a loud clunk when put clutch down a couple of weeks back, occasional slip and grind etc but nothing else for 8 days and probably best part of 500 miles, now it gets confusing.....
Parked up fine last Tuesday after doing probably 75 miles that day, got in Wednesday morning to head to work put in gear and had no biting point at all
, engine running can go through gears without moving clutch pedal at all, my mate had a look (mechanic of 18years) could hear it driving in 5th gear and diagnosed faulty clutch...
Had clutch out (plate seems ok probably half it's wear left) so new kit is in place although having problems getting box to engage with release bearing so still on stands at the moment but starting to wonder if could be something more serious after reading around forums, what's most worrying is when car supposedly in gear it can be pushed around and can turn drive shafts by hand
Could anyone shed any light on this please
