  1. there is only £10 price difference between the 2. i was at the shop the ADL BLUEPRINT in Japanese and used in Toyota cars often and more reliable than LU UK Anyone used a ADL BLUEPRINT clutch and whats your feedback?
  2. Which is the better clutch between LU UK clutch or ADL Blue print clutch - which the one I should buy? Is the ADL Blue print made in Japan or in Europe?
  3. I tried to look for the cluth fluid container under the bonnet but the car only a had a break fluid container - I looked everyway and could not find any cluth fluid container! Why is this? Still no luck with the heavy cluth pedal - even Toyota Main dealers do not have a clue - and they are supposed to know the carinside out
  4. I took the car to another garage today - they told me the clutch seems fine for a few thousand more miles BUT the pedal does feel heavy they said it could be something to do with the pedal and they have to 'bleed' the pedal. They gave me details of someone else to go to....seems nobody knows how to fix the 'heavy clutch' pedal. could it be low clutch fluid that could cause the clutch pedal to feel 'heavy'
  5. i took the car down to www.motormarque.co.uk/‎ in horsforth in leeds one of their mechanics did a road test and confirmed the clutch is heavy. Was told it has a few more miles in it so best to use it for a while. was quoted a price of around £620 to replace the clutch was told it takes 5 hours i asked the name of the clutch it starts with the letter 'V' thats all i remember. German Swedish quoted me £210 for a new clutch - does anyone know anyone that can fit it for me?
  6. I will chec the servicev history today I doubt the clutch has been changed I will start to reach driving lessons in a few weeks and I think the clutch is "heavy" for learners - they need a "light" clutch
  7. If the clutch fluid level is low can that cause a "heavy" clutch?
  8. I can try putting some WD40 - can you show me a picture of where I am supposed to put the WD40 on the pedal Hi Tayhlor, has anyone given any thought that it may just be a tight pedal that oiling might fix. Also welcome to the club Del
  9. I hope you guys can please help me on here I bought a Yaris 1.4d on 2007 year around 12 months ago - test drove it and the clutch felt kind of heavy compared to my petrol car but I was told it was "normal" anyway to the present time I am recently qualified to be a driving instructor and I suspect the clutch is going to be be "too heavy" for my learners for when I start teaching in a few weeks time. The Yaris went in for a recall for the window switch just before xmas at Toyota who fixed it and some kind of report on the car where it does say the clutch is heavy. I went to Toyota West Riding in Bradford I was told the clutch was £320 inv VAT so I rang them to book my car so they could check the clutch...they wanted to open the clutch and I presume charge me for "looking" at it. They refused to even sit in the car to test the pedal for me - saying they had toi "open" the clutch and see if it was the clutch or the bearing. I was given £800 for the clutch inc fitting...ouch Can anyone of you guys tell me 1. Is the clutch in the Yaris 1.4d on 2007 reg supposed to feel heavy when you push it down - like it takes more effort is this normal. The bite is towards the top as well. The clutch is not making any sounds and gear changes are fine and smooth. 2. Is a normal clutch Yaris 1.4d on 2007 reg supposed to feel "light" like the gas pedal? 3. Can somone point me in the direction of a Toyota independent service person in the Bradford or Leeds area that can have a look at the clutch for me. 4. If a new clutch is required then where should i buy it from considering I will be teaching starting to teach driving in a few weeks time. Thanks Tayhlor James
