Thanks for your help Peter. I’ve just changed the clutch, one of the springs had come out the pressure plate, plate was different in that it only had four springs so maybe some aftermarket variety. Next problem is now when I push the clutch pedal I get a grinding noise and the clutch doesn’t work. Any ideas? I’m not sure of I’ve maybe not adjusted the clutch pedal adjustment rod properly or if it’s something to do with the release bearing. I changed the plate, housing and bearing with ones from club spares and I’m positive the plate was fitted the correct way round.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I’ve got a show in a few weeks and I don’t want to miss it.
