I would be interested to hear of any similar cases and if anyone has managed to get the clutch replaced under warranty,or failing that anybody having the job done and what sort of bill they were left with.
Be grateful if you would let us know how you get on Nigel regarding costs,warranty wise etc. and what dealer you use. Thanks.Rich.st-george wrote:my FL2 has been doing the same for a while now - 2 1/2 years old 37k miles.
I don't abuse clutches (only had 1 clutch replaced in all my years of various car ownership), & don't tow.
Got it booked in next week(2 day job) but am expecting "wear and tear" response.
God knows how much it will cost - will let you know but would appreciate if anybody else has already been through this and can give some advice.
