As I'm now home working, and will be "until further notice" my car has an annoying clutch judder only in 1st gear when moving off, not in reverse, anyway, I'm going to take it to the local agents in Durham to have a look. I think the drive plate has become contaminated by a leak.

Possibly from the rear crank seal ot clutch slave cylinder, which is the most likely cause, and are there any independent citroen specialist in the North East?
