New Clios dont have clutch cables mate. Come to think of it, I think every new car has a hydraulic clutch.
 


Called Renault assistance today and they sent out an AA man ..He took a look under the Car and his first words were....Oooo i havent seen that before! He then pointed out to me that the Gear box Casting had Broken off from the Engine!!!!! the whole engine Rocked when pushed !

Does anyone know how long its going to be off the road for?

i think while its in i may get renault to buy it off me as i can get a new one for £10,150 anyway... how much do you think ill get off renault for it? its 3 months old 2000 miles on the clock?

Given that you can get a new one for £10,150 (not quite sure about that myself) then I wouldnt have thought youll get much for a broken one!

No, they are cable operated!

Not every car has a hydraulic clutch, if fact they are as rare as rocking horse sh1t.
