Who else has had a problem during these cold mornings with the clutch sticking down in the cold?

I mentioned it to my dealer and before I could finish the story they were ready to replace it with a new designed part.... under warrantee



It’s amazing what you get if you ask,

Don’t think they will publicise this one



Get in there now

Its usually down to a faulty clutch cylinder, and is getting very common, especially on things like the TT.



When you go to start it on a cold morning, you push down the pedal, and when you release your foot the pedal stays on the floor!



In most cases you can just reach down and lift the pedal by hand, and its all okay again.



But is best to get it replaced, especially if the car is under waranty.



And if its out of waranty the bits arent expensive.

Sprayed ours with good 'ol WD40 and, touch wood, it has been okay on the last 2 cold mornings. You'd think that hefty spring would pull the pedal back no problem!

the car has been back in a week now as after the slave cylinder was replaced the clutch problem got worse.. its now in the process of having the master cylinder replaced.

There is a small problem though, they said they couldnt undo the nut to remove the M cylinder so was going to have to drill it out. do you rekon this is true or are they fobbing me off..? my mate rekons they might have cross threaded it when putting it on & now its stuck.. any ideas?
