Re: mk2 punto clutch

does it slip? floor it take it through the revs, if it revs higher than your going it slipping.

pretty obvious.

if you think its ok then wait until it 'needs' doing, just start putting away money for it to be done (about 200) because for him to say its going, it probably is, just not too noticable.

Re: mk2 punto clutch

Another way to test it is to be driving along on a quiet hilly road, when your coming up to an incline knock it up 1 or 2 gears and floor the throttle if the clutch is slipping you will see (and hear) the revs rise but the car dosent speed up. If this dosent happen and the car bogs down and struggeles to go up the hill the clutch is not slipping.

Do you get any judders/clicks/creaks/funny noises when pressing the clutch pedal or changing gears?
