1.4 T3 Corolla 100K Clutch Worries


Recommended Posts

Hey

I brought my 1.4 T3 with 99k on the clock, and the clutch is biting very high, but it only takes about an inch of movement from fully depressed for the car to roll, it has been fitted with a towbar which tells me the old user used to tow, which could have increased clutch wear, as to the squeaking my dad recons its the clutch release bearing, signs of a worn clutch basically, still drives fine, im obviously just a bit worried

Hi,

The squeaking, its it just when you press in the clutch pedal, if so its just a bit of lube around the pedal /plunger.

A worn/rumbling release bearing is often heard more when idling in neutral with your foot off the clutch.

While its running ok, get some quotes, starting with Mr. T , a lot of different prices out there - not really a diy /driveway job

Also if you drive far away, make sure you have breakdown cover to tow you home.

My clutch felt as if it was on it's way out before I sorted it out, and 5 months later it still feels sooooo much better!
