just took my MK3 to a garage to get a new clutch fitted, the car only just made it. On the entrance to the garage there is a small incline(upwards ramp)(only about 3inches high) onto the car park, with the car in first gear i couldn't get up the ramp, nearly full revs and the clutch almost all the way out. I ended up asking the garage owners to give me a push,LOL.In first my maximum speed is about 8mph, foot to the floor.
I know my astra is only a 1.4spi but a 1.2 nova i have driven is less bhp and can easily touch 30mph in first gear. So 8mph in first is about the speed of a milk float , deffo not right.
Lets hope this is new clutch sorts it out, £130 including fitting.
My only question will the pressure needed to press the clutch down be more harder because at the moment it is dead easy to press. And will the biting point on the clutch change, i was thinking the bite would be further towards the floor so you don't have to let the clutch out as much.
