Alfitf The one thing that really pis*** me off is when they try to blame the driver for what is clearly a fault in the plate worn out at 22000.....get real

And I'm not convinced my Duster's clutch is quite right either (Clutch Bite thread).  Will be getting it checked out as soon as I get it back from "paintwork" repairs.

I am on my 2nd clutch at 20,000 miles. It was changed as the original clutch was sticking. Is anybody else having any clutch problems?

Stephen I ain't blaming nobody, I'm saying my car could do with a footrest, as I have found myself riding the clutch, but while I am at it I would say that all car manufacturers have parts that suffer from early life failure, its how they deal with them that makes the difference.

I'm trying to get all the clutch problems in one place until then can you move any comment to "Clutch Judder" thread.

"Retrotim" managed to do 100,000 miles in 23 months in his Logan without any problems !!

Problem here is that 2x courtesy Dusters (albeit 2WD versions) have reminded me of how my own Duster's clutch pedal used to feel. Soon as I get insurance and warranty repairs out the way, I shall be into my Dealer.

As for the foot rest, of course its needed, even space to the left of the pedal for your foot would help. They have this sorted on left hand drive examples, the right hand drive versions have very poor pedal layout.

At 1st I chuckled, but that is very tongue in cheek.

Not a problem as such, but the bite point on mine is very high compared to the 100s of cars I've ever driven.

Excessive clutch wear could be down to the lack of a foot rest, I have started to make a conscious effort to move my foot well away from the clutch pedal, even the lightest of pressure can add to clutch wear.

Isnt it just that nowadays they are not allowed to use asbestos in the way they did in the old days. Clutch plates (and brake pads and shoes) had much longer life spans in the days they were asbestos but of course the dust was not good for the mechanics who had to work on the cars. So since this change lifespans of the parts have gone down, but hopefully we dont have as many people working on cars getting lung problems.
