    Clutch Problem?

    Hi guys, I have a feeling my clutch is on the way out but I am unsure and I don't fancy getting ripped off by a garage. I've seen that Nationwide Autocentres are doing a free clutch check but I'm wondering if this is just their way of getting you in to tell me a load of bull. Just like Vauxhall did 2 years ago when they had it in and told me the steering rack was leaking and luckily I found out their was nothing at all wrong. Any advice more than welcome?

    yes it will defantly NEED a clutch after those places along with a load of other stuff too!

    im sure you know someone who knows someone who can have a look at it.

    gen if the clutch bite is high then it could be time for a new one or it its slipping then its defoo time for a new one (but you would know if this was happening)

    hope that helps

    Is their anything that i could check myself? The reason I ask is because of struggling to get it in first now and again, it judders a lot on pull off and the acceleration is woeful especially up hill.
