    slipping clutch - Ducato x250 2.3



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Hi, just returned home from our second outing in our 'new to us' motorhome, we've had it under 6 weeks & covered about 500 miles but now the clutch is starting to slip under certain circumstances , i.e after changing down to 5th gear then accelerating to get up a steep hill, I will be ringing the supplying dealer in the morning to see if they'll put a new clutch in F.O.C as I think the warranty wont cover the clutch as its a wearing part.
    Has anyone else had problems with their fiat ducato clutch ? my van is a 2010, 2.3, 130hp with 43,000 miles on the clock.
    I'll let you all know what the outcome is.

    if i'm doing nothing,,, how will I know when i'm finished ?

    You are covered as under 6 mths,an clutch should be ok and able to do its job in such a short time,unless you are a very poor driver and drive with left foot on pedal or hold at lights etc.

    Should have thought you'd have a good chance of getting it done under warranty when you take it to them don't have it over loaded they'll be glad of an excuse please let us know how you get on

    Other thought you ma have a oil seal on the gear box output shaft gone which will spin oil onto the plate.
    This seal rips if vh left to long standing doing nout,my bmw bike did the same at 2000 miles when stored for over 2 years.

    Hi, just a small addition, has it used any clutch fluid? The slave cylinder is in the bell housing and can leak on to the clutch plate. I just got a new slave fitted (and the clutch renewed while the g/box was out)

    As I understand it, any fault found within six months of purchasing a second-hand vehicle is deemed to have been there when purchased. It's for the selling dealer to prove otherwise. You'll probably have to google this.

    If they are going to fix clutch foc it really would be worth your while paying to replace the slave cylinder (presuming it's not the culprit). Ours went at 27000 miles and it needed the box out to replace what is a real cheap part. Bob
