I have a VW Polo 2001, 37000 miles, manual transmission, 1.4 engine, with a replaced clutch and timing belt, and a reconditioned gearbox.
I didn't face any resistance in my pedal last night. The first guy who picked me up from the motorway said it was a snapped clutch cable.
The second guy, from the RAC, said the clutch cable wasn't broken, it was stretched. He went into the bonnet and tightened up the but on the end of the cable at the clutch side.
So now the clutch works. He said I should get it checked to find out why it stretched in the first place.
My question is, can I just get along with it for now? If so, how long? I need to find a garage but that's proving difficult on a Saturday.
