Anybody got a spare clutch?

About a month ago while in my local dealers I mentioned to the service manager a slight judder when releasing the clutch. He asked me how many miles I had done, I told him about 33,000. So he said they would replace the clutch under warrantee because it was under 35,000 miles. I booked the car in for some other parts to be fitted and the clutch to be fitted aswell. Two weeks later I arrived at the dealer to be told they couldn't do the clutch because the part hadn't arrived. It was on back order and would be another two weeks, because it had to come from italy (slow donkey ride). Two weeks later I called the parts department to see if the clutch had arrived (the judder getting worse all the time). It still hadn't arrived. The parts manager told me there wheren't any clutches in britain, or italy so he was going to try and find one somewhere in europe but making no promises, and that could be another two weeks. I was gobsmacked that a part like a clutch would be so hard to come by, and am praying that this clutch holds out until the new one arrives.

at least your car still worked.

My heater radiator burst, and the car sat in the fiat garage for two weeks.
