Problem with Renault Clio clutch

I have a 54 plate Clio, been working fine until couple of months ago where the clutch pedal is high and stiff when I begin to drive it, then the pedal feels softer and more towards the floor after I have driven the car for a while. Sometimes the pedal clicks and seems to adjust itself back to normal. I had a similar problem with a Renault 5 I had years ago and ended up having a new clutch. My Clio has done 28,000 miles and I don't keep my foot on the clutch pedal until I need to change gear. Does anyone have any solutions? I don't want to end up paying out to have a new clutch if I can help it. Thank You

Ask a renault dealer if there is a self adjuster on it, i think not, i think it is hydraulic, this means you have a faulty pressure plate, so yes u need a clutch

Have freelander td4 03 plate, continuous problem with clutch. had new clutch , slave cylinder and master 2 months ago, all fine till a month ago lost pedal completely , had new master fittted problem fixed...


Definitely a hydraulic issue. Iknow you said they were both changed, but its usually the master & slave assembly that go faulty on the Freelander. Both parts come filled with fluid and pre-bled and only require fitting, no bleeding. Check with garage to make sure they did not split / bleed them.

Renault clio problem


First check to see if the driveshafts are turning, they are the things that stick out either side of the gearbox. start engine put car in gear. and let the clutch up, if you have no drive, open the bonnet and see if the gearbox end of the driveshaft or the wheel end of the driveshaft is moving. if one or the other is (remember to look both sides of the gearbox 2 driveshafts) you have a driveshaft or hub fault. If all is well and nothing is loose or moving the problem is either clutch or internal to the gearbox. this will require removale of the gearbox. approx 5 hours labour remove and refit plus parts required on inspection.

Renault clio clutch adjust


If the problem is just a clutch cable (clio 55 plate should be cable, not hidraulic), you can adjust or replace the clutch cable quit easily.

If the problem concerns instead the clutch disk, then you will need to put a car up on a bridge, empty the oil and fluid, and remove the clutch that is attached on the engine, on the right lower side.
This is usually not a job for home repair.
