I'm about to get my hands on a 2001 Skoda Fabia 1.4 MPI (6Y) Manual which has a clutch fault. The clutch does not slip and once the car is moving, it's possible to drive it relatively normally. However, from stationary, it's impossible to go from neutral to first gear because the clutch doesn't fully disengage when the pedal is pressed.
I have no idea what the cause is as I've not had any time with the car other than a cursory glance under the bonnet to see that it's a hydraulic clutch and the master cylinder is shared with the brakes. I was going to start by bleeding the system and also seeing if there is any adjustment possible on the slave cylinder or release arm. The objective being to try as many things as possible before having to 1. spend any money or 2. removing the bell housing.
Does anyone have any suggestions of what else to check or know anything relevant specific to this model? Thanks in advance.
