After my clutch cable snapped yesterday as i was about to leave for work :( I had a replacement fitted by a local garage but now my clutch pedal is much heavier. The mechanic informed me that this could be becuase the clutch was on its last legs? Is this true? as it was fine before the new cable went on and there isnt any slip in the clutch at all.

mostly labour costs, cam belt/aux belt + fitting, both front top mounts + fitting, Oil, filter, Denso plugs, ITG filter, clutch cable + fitting and towing. I think there is more but i cannot think at the moment.

A genuine clutch cable costs £14.70 + vat - part number is 7700829067. You must also fit a new clutch pedal stop £1.44 + vat part number 7700829101. The clutch cable has a built in adjuster and must be routed in a specific way so it does not cause strain on the cable ( outcome of heavy clutch ) when you buy a new cable from renault they include a diagram of how you are meant to route the new cable.

Cheers Matt, ill have a moan at the garage shortly :)

EDIT: just off the phone to them, according to the guy that fitted it there was only one obvious way to fit it along all the specifed clips.

i believe bb tuning do a soft clutch pedal conversion mate check them out.my valver had a really heavy clutch and mine was fine.
 
i would have thought they fitted a cheap copy cable bout an inch shorter then the proper one which shocked me, they only last a year or so as well
