Clutch issues

Post by fozzi97 » Wed Mar 14, 2018 10:11 pm

Hi all,

So parked the car up and after taking my foot off the clutch, it was stuck to the floor. Absolutely gutted and had to be towed by the RAC to my local Vauxhall dealer.

Today they installed a new elbow and pipe (I believe) and the mechanic lost pressure after pressing the pedal a few times. They’re now talking about having the gearbox out of it and looking for the problem there.

Sounds really worrying and I’m really losing faith in the car after reading some threads on this forum. Some of the ones I’ve read haven’t mentioned having gearboxes taken out, so I’m just wondering if anyone has had to go down this route with their cars and what was the outcome please?
