So, long story short my clutch went one day whilst I was driving on the motorway. The car hit about 60 and wouldn't drive faster and gradually slowed down. I pulled in at the next junction at the lights and went into first (after much struggle as the car refused to even go in gear), and then the car refused to go in gear with the biting point being the floor.
So I had recovery come and turns out the clutch had gone. I guess I had signs a month prior with a loss in acceleration power etc. See Car not accelerating and over revving.
So, I had the clutch changed and all the issues I had are gone. The car changes into gears fine, no loss in power, seems to be pretty fast. The problem? The biting point is SO low. Now, I was very used to my old clutch with the bite being so high and potentially this was an indication it was worn? But now it's a tad higher than the floor. Is this normal? Or has something been done incorrectly? Is there a problem with it being low (other than me adjusting)? I saw this Why does new clutch have much lower biting point but wanted to clarify.
Car is a Ford Fiesta 1.4 Diesel 2010, clutch was replaced at a local garage reasonable price + new part fitted.
