Anyone heard of a clutch cable snapping? I suspect this is what has happend to mine but it cld also be the pedal box, going to look at it now! All i know is its gone on the inside of the blkhd.
I have a love hate relationshio with my GTi, I love it but hate the amount of money its costing me!!! bought it about 4/5 months ago and since then i think ive spent £1300 getting things fixed! Paid £500 cambelt/tensioner & service by VW for peace of mind after buying it as no record of cambelt change (89000miles). month later gear box is f***ed - another £600 to VW after some tense negotiations, and they had the cheeck to say they were loosing money! They said my clutch needs looking at (and I think they may have adjusted the cable) but cldnt afford it straight away, was gonna do it this month but had to spend £150 of 2 front tyres (were way illegal @ only 4/5 months on the car!) and camber re-alignment was miles out. and now this
Gonna get a SACHs kit and get my mate to fit with new cable etc and can hopefully beef up the pedal box if needed which was replaced in 2004 throught the re-call.
I must admit I could treat her a little better but I wasnt feeling any of the problems that have been described, it litteraly just went when i wasnt actually in gear, mid gear change, is this bad?
