Hi ,

Sadly my little C3 desire clutch went Sat , well that's what I thought on further investigation it looked like slave cylinder (leaking through the bellows ) after going through the fitting of a new one I then discovered the clutch fork floating loose :-(( has anyone come across this before?? I assume this is gearbox out and further investigations or a second hand box ? any information tips gratefully received

the car is a 2004 1.4 desire 5 speed petrol


Many thanks

Jon

I haven't had the clutch out of mine or heard of that problem, sorry. Here is a picture of the clutch and fork components which shows no.4 as a CLUTCH FORK BALL-JOINT. Maybe this or the socket has become worn?

The Clutch kit of Fritcion plate, pressure plate and bearing are available from euro car parts, the clutch fork is available here on ebay and the ball joint is here also on ebay, usually.
