    Default 360 clutch help

    on driving my 360 for the first time for 2 weeks i noticed the clutch felt funny! as if the biting point was very short or not much travel in the pedal! i put id down to the fact i have been driving a Aston V8 recently and that has a very high biting point and that i was getting used to this!

    however on continued driving it felt the clutch on some gear changes mainly into first and second as if the clutch wasnt working ( very short pedal travel)and it was a struggle to select the gears! then suddenly as i was about to give in and pull over on trying again it would select and drive ok for a few changes then repeat over again!

    i parked it up at home over night then drove to work this morning and it seemed ok! the clutch doesnt slip at all and its just had its 18750 service 150 miles ago!

    i think i may need a new clutch or something to do with a clutch lol

    as there are no specialists in the newcastle are, (that i know of ) i was hoping that someone on here may have have had a similar problem and could enlighten me!

    i dont fancy another 200 mile round trip to leeds just yet.

    please can anyone help me
