Hi all

Got in the motor earlier and found the clutch pedal was low (about half way) after a couple of miles it was back to normal, any idea's?

could be slow leak in clutch line somewhere. The line runs from right hand side of the firewall, over the gearbox and into plastic tube mounted at the front of the gearbox. This line is half metal half rubber with seals at both ends. Check if you have any signs of leak around it.

If it isn't leak it could be just air gotten in somehow. Bleeding the clutch may help.

Hope it isn't leaking into clutch release bearing.

hope you get it sorted

hi i know youve only done 12k but check the brake pads because the brake fluid resovoir shares the brake fluid with the clutch and when the brake pads get low then the clutch gets air in the system it is unlikely going to be a leak in the system. one last thing to check is the clutch master cylinder just put ur hand right up under the pedal and see if it is wet.

thanks for that Mark, i wasnt aware of the reservoir being shared, sounds likely to be the cause as I havent found any leaks.


cheers
