Heavy Clutch on a 405 TD

Post by westy » 06 Jul 2001, 14:33

My late ('96) 405 TD has a very heavy clutch action, which appears to vary with engine or steering movement (?!!!). For example after engaging reverse, it will suddenly become stiffer at a critical moment! The clutch has recently been changed (by a Peugeot agent)and has made no difference (The clutch was worn anyway).
I am assuming a new cable is required, as I have checked the cable run (OK) but it appears to be very difficult access around both ends. Anyone had experience of this, and how hard is it to DIY?
Many Thanks in advance for advice/ experience.
