Hi all, first time posting, long time lurker on here.
So, last week I took on the wonderful task of changing the clutch and dual mass flywheel. All went swimmingly, release bearing pushed in with relative ease. All back together, lovely. Drove it about for a few days fine, but on its longest run since the clutch change, after a short burst of power on an overtake I could feel a juddering just at the very top of the pedal. Then 10 miles on when powering through into 5th gear the release bearing popped and I had no clutch pedal at all. Lifting the pedal just caused the pedal to go hard as the slave had pushed out the push rod too far and couldn't go any further.
On final getting home without a clutch pedal, I stripped the battery and all that out to get to remove the slave, pushed the clutch arm to push the release bearing back in, and bobs your uncle it's perfect again.. The has happened twice now though making it a bit off putting to take it out
Any ideas from anyone would be appreciated, as I say, the bearing pushes in with ease and then works fine for a short while or until I'm powering it on the motorway etc. just wondering if I need to do anything else when seating the bearing, like a short prayer or something!
Thanks in advance
