Re: Heavy clutch

Sounds like the clutch is in need of replacement. Not sure which type of clutch is in a Doblo, but in a compression release clutch as the clutch plate wears the fingers of the clutch come back (high pedal biting point) therefore needing more effort to compress & release. As for difficulty getting into gear, this can also be associated as the worn plate can distort due to wear & then not allowing the clutch to fully disengage. I hope some of that makes sense? ☺

Re: Heavy clutch

tbh Richard mine is now similar to this I've got an 04 1.9jtd and its very juddery especially when its cold or when setting off loaded, although my gear change is still quite smooth, my mechanic says on described symptoms its sounds like the springs worn, although clutch does not slip at all. I would have thought yours was defo a dual mass flywheel clutch, mine as well probably.

Re: Heavy clutch

isnt the doblo known for clutch judder?
many posts on the forum with people gone for clutch changes after 20k from new and it remained.

also posts on gear linkages needing lube. some links over on the multipla right now discuss the same issues with some easy fixes.

Easy.. if you just need to reconnect the cable.


What sensor is it referring to..?

What engine : gearbox combination..??


And will the fault reset to restore normal driving?

Re: Heavy clutch

Hi Charlie.. It's a 1.3 Diesel qubo on a manual transmission.. The fault does reset when obd computer to rest it. to normal driving then after a few minutes goes into limp home mode, the fault says its engine oil circuit/censor. The code is P0520..
Kind regards
