Hello

Took my daughters car for an MOT 2 weeks ago, it came back with a clutch problem, it was a real challenge to get it into gear.
Took it back, they bled it and its been fine until today ( I checked the fluid level every other day).
Its a problem again engaging a gear but the fluid looks fine.

Can anyone confirm that the clutch will probably need replacing ?

Any insight/thoughts most welcome.

Cheers

Craig

sounds like the thrust bearing has gone in the clutch

get a new clutch & bearing fittet m8
sounds like the problem to me

look here for the parts

www.buypartsby.co.uk
or
www.fordpartsuk.com

check them for prices & ask for the thrust bearing aswell incase they only
price for the clutch &
get the p&p & vat inc aswell
then phone your local garage (non fords)
& ask for a clutch & thrust bearing supplied &
fitted price then as what it would cost if you supplied it all
they don't like it so much if you supply as they say about warranty etc ...load of crap asthen
loose out on the mark up of the goods.
that's what i do so be prepared
or do it your self as it's not that big a job m8
i done my ford galaxy one & that's a big one &
saved myself about 400
