I've just had a brand new clutch kit fitted, and for the past two days the car has stunk of what smells like sulphur, it's gotten stronger each use of the car, it smell's like those little party popper thingies (<technical term!) I know a little welding was done aroung the clutch fork area, and I dont know if the smell is something symptomatic of the products used, is this smell normal, will it go away, and if it's deadly will it kill the passenger before me??!!

Nothing to worry. It will take couple of hundred miles and the smell will gradually go away. Same thing with the brake pads. It takes some time and some heating-cooling cycles for the gasses to escape the friction compound.

Beautiful, thanks very much for that.
