Hi all. I've recently had a new clutch fitted and clutch bearing. My car will not go into gear without a fight. When the engine is switched off it will slide into gear with ease. Any ideas what could be causing this problem? Many thanks.
Clutch not releasing properly for the short answer.
Take it back to be fixed right.
Clutch release system might not be bled adequately, seen a few where the friction disc was put in backwards & it engages again at full pedal travel for an odd one. Was the flywheel resurfaced/replaced? That helps it work much better & last longer...
Hi thanks for taking time to get back to me. I only had the clutch re done and clutch bearing. There was no mention at the time of anything else what could of gone. The mechanics taken it back to have another look at it tonight. Do you think it could be something simple to fix?
It feels like a brand new clutch pedal should. No softness or nothing out of the ordinary. But what I did find when I first got the car back was the biting point on the clutch was right at the bottom (towards the floor) and as time gone on over 3 days the biting point has got higher. Ps sorry for not being able to explain the problem as clear you would like.
Yeah it's disengagement has got a little easier along the way. It's putting car into first gear & reverse gear I'm finding extremely difficult when on the move 2nd gear to 6th gear I can find. Hopefully it's self bleeding/wearing in a little as you say fingers crossed.
Yeah sorry for confusion. Long story short the mechanic who first done the job is ignoring my calls and dismissing me. Hence the reason I'm asking Is there anything I could do as I don't want to pay another mechanic for a job the first mechanic should of done correctly.
