Exclamation Clutch gone without slipping

Just a bit of advice for those not aware.

The biting point on my clutch was near top of pedal travel just before xmas. With experience of other cars ive owned, i decide to wait till the clutch starts slipping then take it in for a replacement.

Yesterday i got in, tried to put it in reverse but it started grinding, so i put the clutch back down to the floor and re-selected the gear. when i release the clutch once more the pedal stayed down.

Called the AA, he had a look, apparently not only had the clutch suddenly gone without slipping first, but the slave cylinder or summat like that has exploded.

Had it towed to Mr Clutch Center in maidstone. They told me to come back tommorrow with 478.34. to replace the clutch, slave and master cylinder.

How about that 10 days into the new year....

you guys have been warned!

You are wasting money with a garage that is not familiar with the product,find a LR garage - either independantor main dealer.Either will be cheaper than the Toyota garage using the "parts shotgun" rather than accurately diagnosing the problem - which sounds like a turbo overboost situation,which makes the engine ecu cut power to prevent engine damage.

good price Dave. . . .Harry you can always tell if the clutch is slipping revs will increase, might need adjustment and like Dave says if the pick up is very near top of pedal a good sign of wear or adjustment , its quite unusual for the clutch to go like Dave's but a combination of slave and wear could tip it. . . . .

Clutch flooring unexpectedly? I had that. I thought I might need a new clutch as well. Cause was the shaft seizing up. causing the bracket that holds the slave cylinder to bend and the slave to come off the mounting and explode. Quite a common occourance according to Autoparts, my sparts supplier. Towed the car to the local garage who sprayed release oil on it, left it overnight, followed by a blowtorch and freed off the shaft. Fitted a new bracket and master and slave assembly, job done. If the clutch wasn't slipping then it probably didn't need replacing. I was lucky, my local garage is as honest as they get. The prices of clutch and master cylinder assembly varies from around 50 quid to 200 and they are all exactly the same. It pays to shop around. There are a lot of rip-off merchants around, preying on peoples desparation.
