well decided mines going in for a check this week as it is sticking more now, and i noticed what seems like light oil on the top/spring area of the pedal, when pedal down it drives no clutch slipping, and can change gear, so could be having to drop transmission to get to slave, might replace the battery while its out just incase as thats 4 years old, last one i had no warning it just died. so will see what the rough cost will be then decide. still cheaper than swapping cars i suppose, as i am happy with it, its a 2.0 tdci 180 4x4, 2015. ruby red. 54000mls.

the brake fluid in engine compartment seems full, no leaks on pipework, it goes in for diagnostic on weds and then will know better. its not the sort of job i will tackle on my drive, why build a slave inside the bell housing.

yes ive seen that when the problem first started, it used to be occasional but its getting regular now so needs sorting, its the sort of fault one can put up with but when it happened when i was reversing uphill on a slight bend you cant use the clutch to control the car. will let everyone know when its been diagnosed and if price is ok it will be booked in for end january,

MaoVi, if i could go to a independent garage i would do, the only garage near me is a ford/suzuki dealers, my nearest next garage is over a hour away, so would be a two hour travelling time plus waiting to be seen also another two hours + for them to check it in first place, plus adding another 300 miles on clock and fuel costs, we live in the sticks where pretty much everything is scarce its the price i have to pay for having quality of life, no where have i mentioned contaminated fluid its the clutch that will have a light coating on if the slave leaks ( bit of luck that might be ok they give the worse news just in case) they are swapping battery while its out but it wont be a ford one, as had mine in for three and half years, so doing it to save it packing up later, ( my van battery lasted 18 months and had a 3 year warranty,) took it back and was told they have now stopped 3 yrs and only offer 2yrs warranty because of the stop/start system, and the amount of returns. we will see what the outcome is as i have booked the kuga in towards end of january and i will update then. best wishes to everyone for 2022.
