Non-original clutch

Question : THE clutch on my 1983 Volkswagen Golf has just been replaced. Since then, the "take- up" is rather sudden and this is creating problems for my wife when she drives in a built-up area.

My mechanic blames the gearbox but then the problem did not exist before clutch replacement. Please advise.

Answer : CLUTCH judder and sudden take-up are frequent problems that occur soon after clutch replacement. Occasionally the problem goes away after a few hundred kilometers after the new components have had a chance to bed in but, frequently, the problem remains.

The problem is usually caused by the clutch friction or pressure plate, or both. These problems are often seen with non-original components but almost never with the manufacturer's original replacements.

Always try and replace hard-to-get-at and major components with the car manufacturer's original parts where possible.
