Damn car!!!!

Car is a 57 plate 2.2 oil burner....

Bought car with approx 10K on clock.....first clutch slipping episaode was at approx 24K. Thankfully Johnsons in Oxford replaced clutch and release bearing under warrenty without any quible. That was back in early 2010....

So here i am early 2012, Civic now has 46K on clock and guess what???....yep, clutch is slipping again!!! Took car into johnsons today, who checked it out and agreed clutch was slipping. Same as last time, they have to strip it down and make sure its not a 'wear and tear' issue....

So whats the deal? Something is clearly making the plate wear. Is it flywheel?....poor quality pressure plate??? I'm sure ui have no idea, but i'm pretty hacked off with the car, thats for sure....

Any one else on their 3rd clutch in less than 50K????

LOL do a search, more discussion on this than the weather! It's a design flaw in the pressure plate and installation from factory.

If you're having it done under warranty then cool, but if its your own money.. don't waste it on a Honda clutch, go for the CG Paddle clutch.

as said very common problem with diesel civic
i spoke to cg sports before christmas and they have standart clutch as well as paddle clutch but becauwe of drivability i will go for 700 paunds for cluth bearing gearbox oil change as well inc. dmf
when honda is repairing ** clutch get them to change dmf and make sure they replace it with uprated clutch as long as it is free go for it otherweise go to cg sport get it done once if ** car is running on standart ecu than u looking at 700 ish paund till end of the january

Blimey can't believe that some people are going through that many clutches :eek:. I'm going to join the clutch club very soon, mine has started to slip in 6th today. 44k on the car, but not sure if it's had one before as i only got the car 3 months back. Trip to the dealers tomorrow anyhow, best not try and fob me off, can't stand that sort of attitude.

Mine too!!

At 40K slipping clutch (pressure plate clutch and release bearing replaced), costs part covered as could be manufacturing defect.

Now at 59K slipping again feels identical to last time but this time (they took it apart this morning) they say the flyweel is causing it (out of spec, wear), they haven't measured the clutch plates yet but it looks like i will have to pay the lot.

Anyone know if the clutch can cause the flywheel wear?
