      Default Burning clutch

      Im in newquay at the minute for a week and was on a very steep hill stuck in traffic ,and my clutch was absolutely sticking i mean proper burning.was using handbrake while stopped but the hill was more of a mountain.

      Probably shortened the life of it but will it still be ok to use as im on holiday ive let it cool down and its not slipping at all but while we was on the hill/mountain the clutch had to be helped out of the bottom of the footwell it stayed there while my foot was off it.
      But all ok now

      Sorry for lack of knowledge and the way ive wrote it but 3g here on phones is non existant and took me over an hour to write this;hopefully it will get through to you all
      Thanks phil

      Lol no worries happy to help if it has been driven hard all it's life it may be getting to new clutch time but if it's been looked after driven a built more sensibly then should be ok
