Re: heavy clutch

Did you have a standard clutch fitted or a heavy duty one? Absolutely ghastly when they put a heavy duty one in mine without asking me. Thought they were doing me a favour, needed a new left leg!

Re: heavy clutch

a stiff pedal and slow pedal return is often due to a slave cylinder or master cylinder fault (piston sticking).
