Biting point shudder
Hi fellow Astra owners,
I bought a Vauxhall Astra, 05 plate 1.6 Club Twinport, approximately 3 months ago.
I have noticed that the car seems to shudder at biting point when in first gear. At first I thought it was me brining the clutch too high too fast or not pressing the accelerator enough, however I have noticed that the problem goes away after driving it for a while. I think it may be an issue when the car is cold, as it usually only happens soon after starting the car and we have had some very bad weather recently.
I tried googling the issue and found a few people with a simillar issue. Their solution seems to be to replace the clutch. Does this sound like something that I may need to do?
Also the car has done 54K miles and has not had the cam belt replaced. When should I look into replacing it? I have heard conflicting opinions, some say 40K, some 60k and other 100K.
Thanks in advance,
