difficult changing gear

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and hoping for advice from someone with more mechanical knowledge than me . I have a Doblo 1.9jtd ELX from November 2003. A few years ago I had a new Valeo clutch and master cylinder fitted and have had no trouble until recently. Some days, reverse is almost impossible to engage from cold with the motor running and changing gears on the move is no longer smooth but notchy. Other days no problems at all. Master cylinder is full of fluid. So does it sound like I need yet another new clutch please? Thanks

Investigate possibility of air in clutch fluid/ bleed fluid from slave cylinder.
Possible slave cylinder or master cylinder fault. It is not unknown for the spring inside the master cylinder to snap .

Thanks, I'll look at those possibilities before splashing out on a new clutch.
