Thanks for the replies, got it fixed now, it was the clutch and the dual mass flywheel AND the slave cylinder in the end so £1135 later
!!! It was just worn out!!
I was a bit worried that being a female the garage may try to pull me a yarn but asked them to give me my parts back and I had them checked out and they were as Palmer & Philips said totally worn out
Must admit Palmer & Philips were great and would defo recommend them and use them again
I'm only up to 87,500 miles in my GT and my 2002 147 2.0l Lusso had about 150,000 by the time I sold it, personally I think that high mileage is a bit null and void these days as engines seem built to last for a lot longer than they used to be!! Hell my old old old Citroen ZX 1.9JTD (which I believe is the same engine as what is in the Alfa 1.9JTD??) was at a snip of a 249,000 when I bought it, I put it's 1st replacement clutch in it at 315,000 (and it had been used to tow a handglider) then sold it at 375,000 for £110 more than I bought it for!!
Guess plans to get a little 147 diesel to run to work and back in have now been scuppered as the money I had put aside has just paid for my new clutch!!!! Ah well I love driving my GT, and think I may feel a little cheated having to leave it at home every day!! Hell I'm the one who shows up at work every day with a beeming great grin on my face and a few waaahoooos under my belt by 8am
