I think my clutch my of gone. It will not go into gear without a cruntch but the fluid levels are OK and the peddel moves OK but I still can't put it into gear. It all happend within 10 miles of driving. Do I need a new clutch and if so can anyone recomend one to get or uprate it in any way. Thanks.

Adjustment of steering column (thus gear linkage) via two 13mm bolts under dash.
Adjustment of clutch itself, via 11 and 10mm spanners on side of bell housing - check free play under rubber cover at end of slave cylinder, this should be 4mm when end of fork is puhed in.
All in the Haynes/Auto books.

|15/09/2004 20:08:35||Richard||Hi thanks for all the advice. Have checked fluid levels etc and tried adjusting but it is the cluch thats gone so of to a garage she goes. If they find anything different I will let you know.|

|17/09/2004 20:37:00||Richard||Yes getting moverment when the pedle is pressed, the rod moves at the clutch but the clutch its seft dosen't.|
