Slipping Clutch on Spider
Hi all. Over the past week I have noticed the cold mornings have made my clutch slip slightly, the car is on a '10 plate so only 2 and a half years old and done 24K miles. I had a few other warranty issued for the dealer to take care of so I booked it in and mentioned the clutch to them. The have said they can take it apart but I have to agree if nothing is found to be at fault the charge is down to me. I have had a look around online and have found a few mentions of cold weather affecting clutches but more saying its probably the friction plates.....
I am thinking I may as well leave alone until the weather warms up and if the issue consists then take it back (warranty lasts until August).
just so you know, the other items were:
Wind noise on drivers side at 70mph, this has already been looked at and adjusted but came back.
window button making the window go the wrong way
Alarm not available (apparently it needs a new 'tilt' sensor)
