Clutch slipping in high gear - what to check first?

Recommended Posts

My G reg One Ten's clutch has started slipping in high gear. It's rock solid and doesn't slip in lower gears.

Before I book it in to have a new clutch and my wallet emptied, is there anything I should look at first?

I've also read that I should request a 130 clutch is fitted

Make sure your clutch-pedal has proper free-play: you should be able to get hold of the pedal and pull it up about 1/4 inch of slack. I've known the pedal to bind on the pivot if lubrication duty's been neglected - this will stop the clutch releasing fully and can cause it

to slip under load.
