Hello Fellow members - recently my drive-shaft went so i got that sorted but here's the thing, Now when i press and depress the clutch pedal its really rough as if its grinding metal on metal. What could this be ? it changes gear fine and the bite point is the same which is why im a bit confused???? please help !

If it has a cable clutch then it could be the cable is frayed or incorrectly routed. There isn't something fouling the actuating leaver on the gearbox, is there?

I found this on the web:

Seat out "tick"
unhook cable
Shaft out
drop pedal
fit new quadrant
shaft in
fit cable
Pump pedal till adjusted

But if you have a pre 95 model then you can mod it.

Yea the quadrants are cheap as chips to buy but a total sod to replace. Most people say to allow best part of a day to change it.
