I have the car above and when I bought it the clutch pedal "bit" very early. (This was year and a half ago)
But one gets used to that and there was never an issue.
Recently in the last few weeks its as if the clutch needs adjusting as It bites early, probably the same and
the pull away is juttery unless i rev the car high ?

Its like on my old motorbike gs550 id simply need to adjust the cable on the
handlebars and all would be fine - but clearly this is different - hydraulic perhaps ?

Anyway whats think ? Is it a sign of something terrible ? Bar this the car drives fine
its just pulling away when this happens and only in the last 2 weeks ?

Thoughts as always appreciated.

P.S
I still have my other ren scenic mk1 with the blown head gasket but
have not dared to start that project.

I found this online ..... which I am sure is the reason.

Q) What is the end result if I drive the car regardless ?
I am assuming it is worn out friction plates ... is it a sudden no drive scenario ?

P.S more analysis to fault is It is definitely in last few weeks becoming harder to get
into gear in lower gears.
oh and mileage is 125k (unknown if clutch plates ever renewed )

Car juddering when pulling away
When I set off in first gear, my car sometimes stutters and shakes until I put it into a higher gear.
What could the problem be?
The most likely reason that a car jerks when accelerating from stop is a problem with the clutch.
It could be due to worn-out friction material or a pressure plate defect (or combination of both). It could also be caused by an oil leak contaminating the clutch plate.
How to fix it
If there is a fault with the clutch, you will need to find out whether it’s a mechanical issue or whether the clutch facing has been contaminated. This is best left to a professional to deal with.
Replacing a clutch is a specialised repair

Under the realization its a new clutch - no question. Again a job iv never done and prob is beyond me
alone although i have space and tools.

Would quotes of 350 - 600 £ be about right ?
