Well I've come to the conclusion that I need a new clutch.
The bite is right at the top of the pedal and it sometimes judders when pulling away.
I've spoken to 2 local independents. Midland VW over Cannock and VW Rescue at Wombourne near Wolverhampton.
One has quoted £740 all in and the other has quoted £835 all in (both worst case scenario needing a DMF and clutch kit)
I know I'm not going to get it done for 50 pence and a packet of Monster Munch, but does anyone know of a good reliable garage that'll use good quality parts that can do the job cheaper?
