So, an update on my Z. It went in first thing on Monday, and my ride for the week is pictured below....


I got a call yesterday saying they had now had confirmation from the warranty people that they were willing to pay for everything, including the new clutch plate, so they were then ordering the parts.
This meant that at the earliest, I might get the Z back late on Friday :shock:

It seems I might have to put a bit mor Diesel in the 308 after all :eusa-think:

Ha, as I was posting the above, I got a call from Evans Halshaw, my car is now ready to collect :thumbup:

So I’m off now, not a moment too soon, to get my Z back :dance:

Got my beautiful Z back, :dance: OMG driving home was amazing compared to taking the 308 115bhp diesel loan car back.

I did notice when I got back greasy marks all over the front of my car, and on opening the bonnet, there were oil spillages over the rocker box.

Not very professional :eusa-think: :thumbdown:

So far so good, no noise, but of course it was an intermittent thing anyway, but I can’t see how it can still make any noise after they replaced literally everything to do with the clutch & flywheel ( they gave me the invoice for my records - £1590 :o ).

It does feel different, not as much resistance on the pedal as before, but the biting point seems to be in roughly the same place as before.
At least I know the car had a new clutch at 34k so that can only be a good thing & always a feature to mention if I ever sell it.

It only took a minute or two to clean the car up, but then, that’s the point it’s it? It wouldn’t have taken anyone any effort at all to just wipe the marks off - Sloppy :eusa-think:

Good result though :thumbup:

Your car still ok ?

My wife has had similar problems - had clutch/flywheel etc replaced and noise came back again a few months later.
