Clutch - Slip Or Adjust? Higher Revs Not Biting

4 posts in this topic

Hi we just got back from Wales

The 1.4tdci Fiesta drives but when you floor the accelerator it bites and goes but you have to lower the revs to keep going else the engine keeps at times revving high but not go faster.

Do you know how to adjust the clutch on these? I had it before on another car and the clutch was not buggered...

It still goes up hills etc and stalls if I pull forward with the break down etc.

Reply #18 - 07.09.11 at 21:42:00 I've done several clutches on the tdci fiestas and only 1 had a dmf ( the owner wasn't pleased when we said we had made a mistake thinking it didn't) the clutch plate sits the other way round on the solid flywheel version I've noticed

Even cable operated fiestas were self adjusting! No there is no adjustment on the clutch. If it slips it's worn out.

Even with a worn clutch you'll still get enough friction to stall it with the handbrake on.

As above, clutch needs replaced.
