1/ Clutch pedal sticking on travel upwards from floor

2/ Damp patch around bell housing

3/ A metallic, sporadic intermittent rattle when in neutral which is also now noticeable when accelerating in low gears (undetermined whether this is clutch plate and/or DMF)

4/ Difficult to get into 1st, 2nd and 3rd

5/ Hesitating (intermittent) at 50-60mph


This is the result of a recent diagnosis I've had done on a 4yr old TDCI (1.8). It's going into the dealers I bought it from tomorrow for repairs, but I wondered what you thought the new parts list will include?

Have something to contribute?

I,d say at least new slave cylinder on the clutch has your brake fluid dropped hence damp patch .possibly clutch plate .

the damp on the bell housing means slave cylinder has gone which has now contaminated the clutch plate so a whole new clutch will be needed now anyway


so youll need the slave cylinder the clutch plate the clutch and as far as dmf goes im not sure if that will need touched expensive job
