    306 clutch

    Hi,

    Anyone replaced their 306 clutch? Any ideas how much it's worth?

    Mine's very close to the end - it engages only just above the floor.
    I guess that's ok for 126 000km in a predominately city car.

    126,000K sounds pretty ordinary for a Peugeot clutch , Derek, unless its been grossly abused!

    Are you sure it doesn't simply need adjustment?

    Cheers

    Rod,

    I think I've worked it out - the cable has stretched and/or is breaking.

    When you take the load off the cable and move it up and down inside the sheath it makes a sharp scratchy noise - maybe it's broken and the loose bits of cable are scratching along the inside of the sheath?

    You can't adjust that amount of slack out of the cable.

    As a temporary measure I've put a rubber block in at the clutch end of the cable to effectively shorten the cable, and gear changes are back to normal :-)

    We'll see how it goes,
    Derek.

    Yep, sounds like a dying cable allright. Worth changing before it goes altogether. Nothing worse than being stuck in the rush hour with no clutch!

    Rod,

    I just finished replacing the clutch cable. It works perfectly now Nice smooth changes again.

    Did you know the 306 clutch cable is self adjusting? About half way along the cable there is a 'bulge' which it appears contains some sort of ratchet mechanism. The old cable, if u pull it backwards and forwards goes click click click from the bulge. The new one doesn't make any noises at all :p

    Much cheaper than a new clutch too $130 and about an hour.

    See ya!
    Derek.

    Glad to here it worked out to just be the cable Derek. I usually expect clutches themselves to last at least 200,000K these days. Depends a lot on your driving style of course.

    Cheers

    Rod,

    That's good to hear.

    I took it for a decent drive this arvo - last night I just went around the block to see it worked alright.

    It's so much better.
    I hope my clutch lasts 200 000km
    The previous owner was a bit of a dodgy driver so who knows. I think I'm pretty gentle on the clutch. I can't afford to do stupid things with it anyway..

    Thanks again,
    Derek.
