Alfa 156 clutch, rebuilt but now pedal is slow to return
Hi Alfa Owner forumites!
I've got a problem with my 2000 156 2.0 TSpark clutch.
So my father replaced the whole thing late last year while solving an oil leak problem for me. New pressure plate, diaphragm, slave cylinder or master cylinder (I think, not sure) washers and bearings. Clutch is beautiful and light and responsive now (most of the time).
The only issue is that when it heats up the pedal starts to slow when it returns. So after heavy use in car parks or on hot days I can take my foot off the clutch and it will take a good three to four seconds for the pedal to come back to the top and for the clutch to re engage fully. The problem starts off small but yesterday was a hot day and after twenty minutes of light traffic the clutch was all but unusable. And making a loud hydraulic wheezing/squeaking sound. I parked the car for 10 or so hours and when I drove back in the cool night the clutch was fine. No issues what so ever.
Has anyone else had an issue like this? Any idea what it could be?
Thanks for taking the time to read my problem, I look forward any and all wisdom that could come my way. Also, apologies for any formatting and spelling errors, I'm posting from phone while sitting in a stairwell.
