Clutch biting point changes randomly
Hello fellow Alfisti,
My 159 1.9 JTS started doing something really strange a few days ago. I engaged reverse to maneuver into a parking spot and upon lifting the clutch was surprised to find the biting point to be extremely low - like 1/4 of the pedal travel - down, whilst it is usually (as normal on the 159s) very much near the top of the pedal. Instinctively I pressed down the pedal again and, as I retried, everything was back to normal.
Since, it keeps doing it randomly - at least once a day, it does the "very low bite" trick and then gets back to normal.
What is your take on it? Busted pump? Slave cylinder? Maybe brake fluid needs to be changed?
