  1. Hi all,

    I've noticed when driving my car recently that when i pull away in 1st gear, i get a bit of resistance - Almost like when the wheels spin a bit in damp weather. You feel it through the clutch.
    It doesn't happen too often but done it yesterday when i drove it and again today when my wife drove it home from work!

    Is this the clutch slipping? Could this be a sign my clutch is on it's way out?!
    If so any ideas of price....
    As i have the BLB engine, if it is a possible clutch, then it's going for a trade in - if that goes and the BLB problem rears in ugly head… I could be £3k down!:faint:

    Thanks in advance.:icon_thumright:

    Could be the clutch if the revs increase without matching speed. The clutch test is to start on an uphill in second handbrake on ifthe engine stalls immediately clutch is ok if the revs hold on with the clutch out its slipping.switch off quickly to avoid damage and drive carefully until sorted.
