I have started to get worried that my clutch pedal is getting heavy, but the problem is I started to notice it after I was told that that was a sign of it failing. I have tried to convince myself that it always felt like that (and would have felt like it at the point my mechanic said it was normal), but something happened yesterday to get me worried.
I was waiting at some lights and as I pulled away the clutch didn't engage properly, so the engine revved up but it wasn't translated into movement. Clearly a sign of the clutch slipping so I began pricing up clutch changes. Just been asked by a friend to do the lift the clutch in 5th/6th trick and the engine stalls as expected, so he said it might not be the clutch friction.
Any idea if I need a new clutch or not, or if theres something else thats causing the problem? I have to admit that I don't know what I am going to do if the clutch does need changing, I am starting to fall out of love with the car at the moment and this could spell the end for my GTV days.
