Hi All. I bought my daughter a great little 2008 107 earlier this year as her first car. Its got less than 30000 miles on the clock and a full dealership history.

Its gone great so far but she was driving the car yesterday and hit a speedbump hard. Since then the gears are a pig to engage. The clutch seems to engage and disengage ok but theres a bit of noise coming from it when the pedal is pressed. I've read somewhere else that its a clear sign of the dreaded clutch issue these earlier cars have.

Any advice on the best way to determine if its the clutch or could it be anything else and how do you tell?

If it is the clutch I'm reasonably handy with the old tools but cant say i'm looking forward to a diy clutch change. Would anyone know of any reputable places in Leeds that would do this without ripping her off?

Cheers in advance.

Diy change is easy on these.

Get one from the club store to be assured of quality and latest specs, a couple
Hours and job done.

Cheers ROC.

I've bitten the bullet and order the Continental clutch kit! I'm guessing there's a guide on here somewhere for replacing the clutch? I know i'm being lazy but if someone could point me in the right direction it'd be appreciated!

Hi guys, Ive had the clutch release lever snap, the fork bit outside the gearbox. Right now it Im leaning towards gearbox removal. Seems there is play to lift it up and out but it looks like there might be a circlip holding withing the gb. So.. To replace would I have to remove the gearbox? Thx

From memory that part operates the clutch. So yes box out. Again from memory this part was upgraded years back and you are not the first that has had this problem. Recommend you renew the clutch at the same time as the fork, also carefully inspect the bell housing and these areas for any metal filings. And grease the shaft well.

Any chance of doing a bit of digging and finding out when the clutch lever was upgraded? I've noticed that mine has a lot of surface rust, and judging by other pictures, it's common to have rust on it.
