Replaced my stretched clutch cable today, now getting ridiculous Clutch Slip.
I set about replacing my clutch cable today, the old cable had a cracked (blue) bit as was moving up and down the cable meaning it was extremely notchy to get in gear an on a couple of occasions I could not get it out of gear.
I replaced it today with one from a motorfactors.
The issue now seems to have gone the opposite way, now when depressed the gear change is lovely and smooth, the bite point is however right at the top of the peddle, and when accelerating the clutch has been slipping like nothing I've ever experienced. It would appear that it isn't being released enough?
Could my arm be seized?
The clutch & release bearing are about 15k old, I've heard they are auto adjust, is there anything I need to do to get it to adjust properly?
