I just returned from a long journey in which the gears would not engage easily from 1st and 2nd. If I came into neutral and then tried to get into 1 or 2, it would not engage. Double-clutching seemed to help. Also, when I got into 2nd, the pedal would not come up as easily as usual. The rest of the gears seem to work well and I managed a motorway drive home. The AA guy who turned up said he thought I needed a new clutch. I have seen a number of threads on here, but with nothing conclusive, so I am still as confused as I was in the beginning. My questions: Was the AA guy right? If so, is only the clutch or am I looking at a DMF change too? Am I better going to an indie or going to the dealership? I really would not like to spend thousands on a ten year old car! Please advise.
