Clutch woes - please help
Major clutch issues have occurred - please can you assist?
Spider 2.4 remapped at 28k
Clutch began slipping soon after, so fitted new CG Motorsport clutch and new DMF.
Car now on 46k and Clutch been a bit sticky for a while.
Recently got much worse do booked car in for new master cylinder on Monday.
Sally just picked me up and exclaimed that the car was 'sick'!
We swapped over and clutch immediately felt very light.
Cat struggles to pull away. Giving more than half throttle results in immediate clutch slip. Wasn't doing this earlier today when I drive it.
Could it really have gobbled through a performance clutch in less than 20k miles?
My car is a daily driver, lots of city driving with some motorway. I hardly drive like a loon - most of the time i am just cruising around trying to tease out good economy, though give it both barrels on motorway skip roads.
All I can assume is it's new clutch time and possibly I may need another DMF of that's been damaged.
I have spent so much on this car in just over a year and have maintained it regardless of cost. Until now I have out up with the niggles, but struggling to find a reason not to chop her in for a C250 right now... :-(
Whaddaya reckon fellas?
Luck is the residue of opportunity and design...
