Good evening, I’ve recently been doing a bit of work on my Range Rover. Lower steering column, pads and rotors, clutch master and slave... I drove to work in the rain for a test drive, everything seemed fine. I fired her up and drove home, nothing to report, apart from when parking up in the garage... After reversing in, I started to smell burning. I hurried in, switched off and opened the bonnet. I could see two spots glowing red around the new slave cylinder. Has anyone experience this before? I was hypothesising that I had installed the heat shield mat slightly off and it was touching the cat. The whole setup seems flawed by design, with the slave being that close to the slave, it made the change a right PITA, as none of the bolts was visible. Awful picture sorry, hard to see the glowing. Any tips? Is the heat shielding doing more harm then good? Any help appreciated, - Richard
hi all, i havea problem that hopefully someone can help with, my wife was driving our disco 300 tdi home last week when the clutch pedal sank to the floor and the clutch was inoperable. i managed to drive it home timing the gear changes with the engine note. at first i suspected the master or slave cylinder so i changed them both. bled the system and the pedal went stiff, i gave the pedal some force and the damper popped!!! on reading this forum i suspected that the problem could be the clutch fork, i proceeded to remove the gearbox and sure enough the clutch fork had gone, i thought while i have the gearbox off i would be wise to replace the clutch plate, thrust bearing and pressure plate. today i have done exactly that aswell as a new damper. Again after fitting all this and putting the car back together i proceeded to bleed the clutch. the pedal finally had some resistance so i pressed a little harder and the damper has popped again. I am now completely baffled, i need your help people as i cant afford for a garage to do the job. PLEASE HELP!!!
