156 TS clutch problem??
Hi, all. I have a 2002 156TS 1.8. I had the clutch replaced about 18 months ago and I am almost certain they changed the slave aswell. Not long after I had an issue of my biting point being really low and struggling to get in gear when I first started the car, the clutch also stuck 3/4 of the way up. I returned to the garage who changed the clutch master cylinder. This worked great for a few months before happening again? the garage claimed faulty part and replaced again. Job done! or so you would think.
The garage I previously used has now closed down. I had isssues again with the clutch and the garage I now use noticed a couple of bolts missing on my gearbox(snapped). They tried to remove them by welding a nut on but no joy. so tightened up the remaining bolts quoting me 2-300 to remove gearbox and drill out old bolts. this resolved my clutch issues again, and the garage suggested if I did not want to commit to a large bill they could just tighten the gearbox when needed.
Sorry to go on!!
My clutch once again started to bite very low, struggle to get in gear when cold and catch 3/4 of the way up. So I had gearbox tightened again, which was apparently "not to bad", and this made no difference at all.
So my question is, Has the loose gearbox affected the clutch master cylinder?(due to the 2 changes of this working previously) and if I change this and have gearbox tightened/fixed will this be the end of my issues?
Thanks in advance for any help.
I am just trying to keep going with this car until I get the funds to change, but after a very tough year health wise(no sick pay either!) I just dont know how much longer I can hang on.
