Clutch, Hydraulic Bearing or syncro-mesh? or something completely different?:cry:
Hi all of you helpful people.
My 159 1.9 JTDm is very poorly.
The misses said today "the clutch peddle won't come back up earlier" alarm bells started.
Took it for a slow drive round the block, loud ticking noise started as I pulled away and as I cruised to tick over, keeping it in second, got a whining noise as it slowed then was about to stall so I accelerated ticking noise stopped and accelerated no problem. didn't dare going for third so cruised home. Stopped to reverse on the drive and reverse would not engage or go in. Had to take first gear move then try reverse again took about 5 minutes of this to get it in reverse.
Now on ticking over the engine sounds fine, depress the clutch and the engine noise smooths slightly, put it in gear and you get Louder TICKING.
Idea's, advice, sympathy, any recommended specialists in Teesside?
Thanks in advance
