Don't even remind me of the clutch in the 164sounds like it to be honest....basically the fingers in the plate wear away and the momement in the clutch reduces to such an extent that soon you won't be able to disengage gear. You may also get slipping under power if the friction material is badly worn as well.
Is the clutch on the 166 V6 as much of a 'mare as the 164? My specialist took 12 hours to change my 'leafs old one - 4 hours of which were spent trying to undo the top started motor bolt!
Hi joniboy. Mine's just the same. A quick vacuum out under the pedals helped (only joking). I mentioned it to my mechanic (Alfa trained independant) and he said it was fine. He reckoned it's when they get to the top of the movement before engaging that you've got problems. I'm not entirely convinced though. Anybody else got an opinion on this one?My 166 3.0 Super is also very stiff on the clutch front and you can't get a smooth change unless the clutch is pushed hard to the floor. If you lift half an inch of the carpet then the car begins to move (in gear). Is this the end for the clutch? It's covered 72k miles from new.
£350 fitted, but the V6 and JTD clutches are a little heavier than the TS ones, just because they have grip better against the torque.You don't want to be left on the road on a rainy day with no clutch, do you? Don't wait until it starts slipping.. it will start to "click" earlier :lol:
How much does a clutch set cost for a 166 V6 in the UK?
