    need advice on clutch

    iv got an astra mk4 and my clutch is just about at the top of the pedal so i know that will need changing soon, but when i set of in first i get a really bad judder which shakes all the front of my car and is really annoying it also slightly does it in reverse. i am wondering if when my clutch gets changed will this go away or is it a seperate job? cheers

    mine does that as well (2001 1.6 16v) got 117,000 on it and clutch done about 500 miles ago.
    Still happens, i believe it to be something to do with the dual mass flywheel on my z16xe engine
    Astra Sold! Now its back! Sold Again! Who knows whats going on!

    Currently Running MK1 1.8 MX5 with LSD awaiting boost, and a Red UK DC2

    think its to do with the clutch plate material. its a known problem that vauxhall have no idea on how to fix. should go away after a few stop and starts
