I posted earlier about clutch problems, i have a dilemma, tell vauxhall in the morning to go ahead with taking the gearbox out to find what the problem is or hope that it is indeed a faulty clutch, and get the car back and have my dad and his mates fit it themselves. Vauxhall and my dad can't be sure what the problem is without taking the gearbox out but the symptoms are:
Car jolted when i changeed from 2nd gear to 3rd gear ( quite high revs in 2nd gear at the time )
Bite is higher than it used to be.
Clutch smelt v. badly when AA guy reversed it about 2-3 metres when arrived shortly after the jolt.
Clutch slips when revs are high ( AA guy drove it to vauxhall dealership v. slowly )
Car is 53 plate, 16k miles.
Should i go ahead and let vauxhall take out the gear box ( £300 ) and then have them tell me it is indeed a clutch problem and that they will replace the clutch cylinder/clutch for a further £300 or should i assume it is the clutch and have them give it back and buy the clutch myself and get it fitted by my dad etc.
The other 2 problems they said it could be were the clutch cylinder needed replacing or some seal had gone and had leaked into the bellhousing? I think that was it, do these sound likely considering the symptoms?
