Whinier than the Wife
Is that even how you spell whinier?
Anyhoo, my 54 plate mk2 1.4 ZR has developed (I say developed, it's being doing it for around 2 years but I've never bothered to do anything about it) a whine when sitting there idling. If I dip the clutch it goes away. MOT fella reckons it's probably the clutch bearing. That sounds expensive, and beyond the skills of a bloke like me.
For an idea of where I'm at, I managed my own head gasket change last year with no problems, completely stripping the head down in the process.
Now considering my car's worth about as much as a family sized bag of Maltesers, is it worth me going to the effort of fixing it myself (if I'm capable), of should I just consign it to its inevitable doom?
