right then guys n gals - i have an annoying noise when u release the clutch on idle (no doubt happens in gear but obviously cant tell when driving)
im sure its the slave cylinder on its way out but the annoying and i mean downright annoying thing is that it was replaced together with uprated clutch and lightened fly only 10months ago when rebuilt by C9 RUM.
it started making a noise a few months back - probably a few months into the conversion but i kinda forgot about it - over the last few weeks its worsened and sounds like a bag of hammers on idle
Im yet to speak to Craig to establish if it was a genuine or aftermarket part that was used but would I be correct in thinking if this has failed or even just starting to fail then it would be covered by the manufacturers warranty ? is it usually if the fitter is only vat registered?
If so , then what is covered? is it just the part itself or the labour too ?
If it was a simple job Id happily replace it myself but the fact its an engine out, gearbox out, clutch out, slave cylinder out job then u can appreciate im more than a little pissed off.
Ok it may be a little more straightforward but id imagine its a good 3/4 hours worth.
Also ppl recommend changing the clutch when the slave is replaced......seeing as the clutch has done 18k miles and cost £350+ in the first place (Helix) would I still be advised to replace it ?
More unwanted outlay for a part that "should" not be failing within 12 months.
Anyway your thoughts are most appreciated - yes i know i can get a new slave for less than a ton but thats nowt compared to the labour etc.
Anyway whatever thoughts you have on this - feel free to share
For those not aware its a Z20LET running F23 although this should be irrelevant
