OK so we have established the clutch is not slipping on a car I'm no longer going to buy. I've got to say though if the clutch was fine, it would be a rather unpleasant driving experience for the clutch biting point to be in such a high position.

In contrast in the 2.0 Tdci I have bought the biting point is about 60% up the clutch pedal, pretty much spot on to be honest.

Have something to contribute?

our clutch is around 80% on top, just covered 80k, 2008 1.8tdci. pulls fine no slipping.....

 

try booting it from 1 gear to another, if it picks up straight away (kinda snatches) its fine.....

 

 

my mate tried that with his brothers impreza and he said that the clutch didnt slip. i told him to put it in 5th at 30 and floor it it slipped
