    Morning all,

    once I leave my car for a few hours or more, usually overnight I come and drive it and the clutch pedal has sunk down half way. Now if I don't move it the biting point will be right at the bottom, so I pull it back up and it is back to normal!
    any ideas guys???

    Sounds like the clutch wants bleeding, maybe a failing slave cylinder?

    dualmass fried i think.
    Had the same, down to the bottom, pulled it up, made it just to home, and it was on the bottom again.

    there was a lot of play on the flywheel what caused the slave cilinder to burn.

    Ok thanks chaps, I think I'll have a go at bleeding it. It only sinks down about 1-2inchs.
    fingers crossed all works out ok?
