In Topic: Clutch/gearbox Problem?

17 December 2013 - 06:03 PM

Thanks for the reply.

 

A picture would be appreciated for reference.

 

I read about the cylinder rod issue before I bought the car so was prepared, and promptly secured it with a cable tie.

I've driven the car for 2000 miles with it like that and its been fine. 

 

Drove it to work and back one day and was completely fine, then I go to drive it the next day and it was a suddenly a bag of crap; changed 'just like that' overnight. No warning or prior symptoms to indicate otherwise.

Ye, nice cars those new fiestas.

 

Wasn't a fan of the 'fish mouth' front end but its grown on me!

Ye, 25k ain't a lot on a clutch.

 

I'm still getting used to mine; only drove diesels before, so trying to move off in a petrol is a new thing for me.

I'm getting there, but still stall now and again.  :rolleyes: I'm completely fine once I'm on the move.

 

First day I had the car I stalled about five times at a roundabout and for the life of me, couldn't work out why I kept doing it, but then later realized I'd had it in third instead of first!  :oops:  :lol:

I'm near Helston, yourself?

 

Haven't really took much notice of the exact clutch bite.

I'll be out at the weekend so I'll have a check then.

Here's that video of a cold startup you asked about.

Hopefully that torrential rain can't be heard too much.
