New to this forum site and need to drive car back from Germany to UK. Clutch prob came on really fast with GTV V6, but first signs were feedback from pedal feeling some form of vibration; this got worse to the point where engaging the clutch results in car vibration, perhaps the flywheel. Once engaged and clutch pedal fully released all ok, but any gear transition, results in some form of vibration albeit less when on the since speed in some cases equals the speed of the clutch plate.
Almost a week later, the gears are becoming stiff and fully depressing the clutch pedal just allows the gears to operate. Checked the block diagram and indeed all hydraulic system and needs that system to release the strong pressure. Is the hydraulic part that moves the clutch fork external to clutch unit.
Suspect main prob is hydraulic but clear some form of twisted part is making pressure contact asymmetric - i suspect! Can the hydraulic system be examined without the need for clutch removal? Alfa German garage want 1200 euro for clutch repair but decided to drive to UK and do it there, but this recent hydraulic problem could prohibit such. Brake-clutch fluid just below max - oddly enough it was topped up by same German garage and he did say the clutch pressure was very stiff to press and contact point was high - i thought the hydraulic system took all that into account.
If main bearing was worn, this would make it difficult for fork to apply even pressure - there are sounds from engine that could be bearing noise. Aim is to just get back to UK....!
Any thought much appreciated......!
