Default Berlingo Clutch Problem

Hi Furry,

New in the forum. New Berlingo owner too. My 2003 model.Does yours have clutch problem. My clutch seem to be getting harder to clutch in.wonder if it is a clutch problem or clutch cable problem.

Any experience in this area anyone?

Cheers.

depends
answer these 3 questions

1) how many % of ur driving is city driving, ie lot of start stop
2) are u a heavy footed driver, ie. u love jackrabbit take off at red lights
3) wats ur mileage

more start stop = more wear on clutch plate and the clutch fork
more jackrabbit = more slippage and heat = more wear on clutch plate
default clutch is LUK which is more heavy duty, can do 120k, there is valeo which is cheaper and more crap and at most 80k

Hi Furry,

Wow.You really know alot abt cars. My milelage is abt 100km a day, abt 3000km a month. Not so much a jackrabbit, but like to half clutch a lot.

You think hve to change the whole clutch, meaning clutch plate and fork. or is it more like the clutch cable?

Any advise on the estimated cost for changing clutch like Luk and Valeo?

Thanks. You are helpful.

Cheers

if u like to half clutch a lot then possibly the clutch fork wear out faster


see the pic above, when u step it pulls the cable and pushes the clutch fork, over time the joint that does the pressing will wear out

the LUK clutch kit comes with the clutch plate, spring..etc
clutch cable and clutch fork are additional items

heres wat a worn out fork looks like *not berlingo's*



the cable should not need to be changed unless wear and tear, normally greasing it should be sufficient to ensure its smooth, the clutch kit (LUK) should be 250 or so, u can get from thomas and partners, or united motors, (dont take my word on pricing for this, 10yr ago chicken rice was 2 dollars), the fork abt 60+? (forgot already)

dun get valeo, its cheaper by 50 bux but lasts half as long

additional info : 2003 onwards model (facelift headlamp) use a slightly upgraded version of the clutch kit to handle the output from 65bhp in prefacelfit to 73bhp, the kit is diff, thomas and united motors will know the correct version, many other workshops dont, wrong fitting will result in poor bite

also take note first 2000km after changing, u will feel ur clutch is very poor grip and slip, its normal cos its not run in and still smooth, after 5000km should feel the bite is there

also i have some super high end grease, u need to apply grease on the clutch fork joint, if need let me know

*specs*
# A wide temperature application range of -45F to 350F.
# Excellent resistance to water washout.
# Excellent shear and mechanical stability.
# Excellent antiwear and extreme pressure load carrying properties.

Oops.... newbie here....

I think I have spammed your email account.

Anyway, do you know where to get Berlingo Spare Parts besides the 2 shops (Kian Hua and United Motor) ??

I need to get the heating relay for my Berlingo.


Cheers....
