So i have an 08 hatch and just 4k miles. And the past few days my clutch feels like its grabbing with half the strength as before..... There is no slipping but its worrying me alot, any ideas????? ???
Yup that sounds about right, it makes it wierd to shift but i almost find it smoother but i like the hard grab more... I hope it recovers!pretty close most likely. I burned the clutch in my 08 a couple times when I first got it, and it recovered pretty well. My 09 seems to be pretty similar though it's only been cooked once. If you cooked it then just take it easy on it for a few more days, it should feel progressively better and feel pretty good again before too long.
It feels kind of slippery right after you cook it, and it grabs in a very non-linear way. No slippage, just like you described, just kind of weak, sloppy, somehow greasy feeling engagement. Is that about right?
That's one of two things I would change about this car. A more robust clutch, and cleaned up steering feel (it kind of feels noisy and you get a lot of unnecessary feedback). Though, those are pretty minor gripes imo.
Its for sure a lot better. but i still think it used to grab harder, who knows it could just be me though. I dont think it will get any better then it is right now. And i have an access port in the mail with perrin's stage one map ;Dto the OP
how's your clutch feel now? has stella got her groove back?
